Having problems with your Volkswagen Jetta ?
Valet Key Doesn't Start Engine
\015 Just purchased a 2002 VW Jetta Wagon that came with both a remote starter key and a Valet Key. Problem is, the Valet Key doesn't seem to start the motor! The engine turns over, it just doesn't keep running but stalls out after a second. Otherwise, there are no problems with starting the Jetta. \012\012Is this a security feature? Am I doing something wrong?\015
Sounds like the chip in the key is not allowing the security system to allow the car to start. You may need a new key from the dealer.
