Default Can you program keys with Vag-com?

And does anyone cut them other than the dealership?

You can and procedures are on our web site but, if you do not have the SKC number for your car, you probably will not be able to do the immobilizer work if you car is so equipped.

VAG-COM nor Ross-Tech can get the SKC number for you because VW went to a closed system and no longer gives the information even to the owner of the car.<ul><li><a href="http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/cars/index.html">Ross-Tech Car Info Page</a></li></ul>

It would be a second key for a 2001 allroad I don't know if it is immobilizer equipped? What is an SKC # ? Clearly I know little about my cars and Vag-com. Say I buy a key on ebay whom can I get to cut it?
I'm trying to justify to myself buying the $350 cable from you folks. What other reason would it be worth it to me? I have an 01 allroad and an 01 S4

Thanks, Chuck

First, for your cars, you could use our KEY series interfaces which sell for $250.

An SKC# is needed to program keys and so on for the immobilizer in the car. The SKC is the equivalent of your bank account's PIN number. It is a unique number that is used to identify the user who is going to change the key coding. Without the SKC, you cannot gain access to the information needed to change the settings.

Having said all that, since you have a '01 vehicles, it may be that you don't need an SKC as the vehicles may not have the immobilizer. :-)

If you do not have an immobilizer, and I think that you probably do not, then you would use this procedure to match the key remote:<ul><li><a href="http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/cars/vw-remote-matching.html">http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/cars/vw-remote-matching.html</a</li></ul>

2001 Allroad likely DOES have an immobilizer.

So this makes it impossible to program keys for this car? Or will it just not make it immobile when locked with the second key?

Default No, it's not impossible, but it requires the PIN code for your car

which is pretty much unobanium from Audi these days.
