Customer Question
Yes 2012 vw cc...

Yes 2012 vw cc ,, new fob key was programmed last week,, after that ,, key has problems with getting in

Mechanic's Assistant: Did the fob come with the vehicle, or did you buy a blank?

I had original,, and bought a blank from vw dealer who programmed it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CC yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well in order to at leas start it ,, i need to put my finger inside where the key goes in and to side there is a plastic that moves down and allows the key to get in

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is it possible that the dealer messed up that ignition ?
