The engine can only be started using a genuine Volkswagen vehicle key with the correct code. Coded vehicle keys are available from a Volkswagen dealership   .

If a non-authorised vehicle key has been used, this will be displayed in the instrument cluster. The vehicle cannot be used if this occurs.
