keys

Asked by Jun 10, 2009 at 10:50 PM about the 1987 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: General

are the door/ignition keys the same as the trunk, or are 2 keys required. looking at buying an 87, but trunk will not lock as the key with the car will not turn the tumblers

1 Answer

75

it depends, what does the key look like?..i know for a fact that with the Mk4's the flip keythats attached on the remote opens/locks the doors, rear seats, glove compartment and the trunk (as with most cars)..however there is a key that is just a metal key and i believe has is moulded into a VW sign is the valet key, which only opens/locks the doors and starts the ignition..but i honestly cant say that is the same for Mk3's, i can only guess cause all Mk3's and 4's use the Immobilizer II security systems.
