My just-purchased 2017 GLI has keyles ignition.How can i open/close all of the windows when there is no longer a key/lock in the drivers door?

Asked by Jan 18, 2017 at 11:46 PM about the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

Question type: General

My "old" 2012 Jetta GLI had the function of being able to open or close all of the windows using the ignition key in the drivers door keyed lock (on the door handle)
2017 GLI is keyless and has no place to insert the key into the driver's side door handle.  Is there any way to be able to perform the all-up-all-down function?

I would guess your owners manual might have something, if not then I would assume it couldn't be done...

Start the car and push to buttons on the arm rest... I'm kidding. Check to see if there is a cover over the key hole in the drivers door. If there isn't one there, I don't know how it could be done.


um from my knowledge there is a sensor in the door handle maybe try and hold the key next to the door handle for a few seconds. If there is a physical key hidden in the remote there will likely be a key port behind the door handle where the lock usually is. you just need to pop the cover off the handle.
