Can KESSY be coded / coded / switched off?  What's the easiest way to stop it?

Yes it can, I think Fred posted the coding to disable keyless entry but not the keyless ignition?

I'd be happy with that.  On the new Audi's you can disable keyless entry using the MMI, which doesn't help here.


Would you mind sharing how to do this using the MMI.

I think it’s an OBDEleven job in the golf rather than MMI. If Fred spots this I think he was the expert...

Definitely not an expert in fixing it.... I did rant for a long time about the dangers of not fixing it.

You need VCDS/OBD11 to fix it on a Golf - someone else posted up what needs to be changed.

Not read back in this post but AutoWatch Ghost or Clifford Blackjax prevent your car being taken as they rely on pushing a few buttons when you get in your car. I have experience of both and it couldn’t be easier. Thieves can still get hold of your code and unlock your car but they can’t start it. It’s such an easy fix so I can’t understand why manufacturers don’t fit these devices as standard. Typical cost is around £500, sometimes less. There’s a feature on AutoWatch Ghost in a recent edition of Volkswagen Driver Magazine and I’ll shortly be doing one on Clifford Blackjax.
