Volkswagen: I have to 01 Passat wagon. I have the valet key

Customer Question

I have to 01 Passat wagon. I have the valet key only. Lost the other key given at purchase. Battery was dead anyhow on the fob. Only started the car. Valet key has really only opened the car. Can I start my car and drive until I can get a replacement fob utilizing the valet key only?
