Here comes the common problem of VW Amarok Caddy etc 2018+ UDS protocol vehicles:
2019 VW Caddy. I spent a few hours trying to program Xhorse key
. Also tried TDB1000. Failed to get remote working. Each time programming failed original remote stopped working until I scanned and cleared errors.
Add Amarok 2018 key fine with autel im608
, car starts but remote didn’t function. I expected it to work when the transponder was added(Megamos AES)……I can’t access any remote learning with any of my tools, vvdi2 did not let me program the remote either. was wondering if anyone could confirm remote learns with transponder or how to learn it if it doesn’t?
It is not possible for BH remotes after 2018 latest.
You don’t get communications with remote central locking adaption.
You need dealer key 100% and then learn by ODIS.
There is no After Market solution, VAG has blocked the remote channel on UDS vehicles 2018+.
Had the exact same issues with new Caddys. So dealer key and Odis atm as the channel only opens at the programming stage.
Only Odis opens it at that stage, you can’t even use an After market precoded key apparently has to be OEM.
Diagnostically up to mid 2018.
After mid 2018 VWG Removed the option in the BCM to allow programming the remote separately from the transponder and the dealer tool opens the remote programming channel during key programming. No aftermarket tool allows the remote programming procedure from id 2018 at time of writing.
But some people had luck with these tools (with dealer key). Try if you have them in hand.
1). I used lonsdor k518ise last time. Under remote section, just go through all of them till you get one that works. Smart Pro can do it as well.
2). In Brazil people do it with xtool x100 pad3. I’ve already managed to program a key of a Brazilian 2018 VW (Voyage) I programmed separate chip then remote successfully.
