VW personnel respond as follows: In response to the feedback received from Sharp Brothers locksmith, We have responded by telephone. The locksmith in question purchased an aftermarket key coding apparatus that works for some of the earlier transponder equipped VWs. However the product does not necessarily work on all applications. The pin code he got from the device did not work in this particular car. There was no way to determine whether the car had a problem or the device. He was not a participant in the VW locksmith program and was unaware of the enrollment process. I directed him to the VW erwin web page where he could get the information to sign up for the VW authorized program. They were satisfied with our response and we consider this feedback closed. Thank you
