Title: Help me understand the key fobs and the cars they fit?
Post by: zmaninco on February 17, 2006, 11:04:48 AM
Hi folks,

I am trying to locate a remote key fob for my 98 Passat 1.8T.  On ebay, there are lots for sale, and the ones for the Jetta and New Beetle physically look the same, but I understand that there are different frequencies so just looking the same doesn't mean anything.

Is this true?  I bought two key fobs off of ebay that worked on a Jetta and they do not work on my Passat using the two key method.  I will try the VAG-COM later today.

If anyone can tell me if the key fobs for a Jetta or New Beetle or Golf and anything else will work with my Passat, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx!

Z

Scuba2001 (Steve)'s has a write-up floating around here somewhere were he lists the FOB number to use for the car.
I know it's probably still on passatworld.com
