      1980 Mk1 Scirocco, 2003 Passat & a 2000 Eurovan MV
      08-21-2012 02:41 AM #1
      A friend of mine installed a Mk3 wireless system in his Corrado SLC and I started thinking, maybe I could do the same for my EV. So I did some research on installing a OEM keyless entry for my 2000 Eurovan.

      After searching the internet for a hour I found a site that sold a OEM module for my car (2000 Eurovan MV), however it said it was no longer available. The guide at the bottom of the page says it fits "2000 Volkswagen (VW) EuroVan 2.8L 6 Cylinder".

      So I did a search on ECS and the Module, harness and key fob / transmistter all came up available for purchase.

      Does any one know if I buy the following, can install this harness and module to make a true OEM VW key work for a keyless entry?

      Part Numbers I found were:
      Module: ZVW288111A
      Harness: ZVW288112
      Key: ZVW288113 <-- (This may be different because I have a standard key not a Mk4 style)

      why not just put an aftermarket alarm. it will protect better as well as taking over the door locks. I had a viper installed and it taps into the factory locking and controls it. i did the same when i had a corrado.

      I'm wondering the same thing. Meister, did you pursue this?

      I realize that aftermarket would be cheaper, but I like the idea of using factory stuff when possible. Thanks!

      Was keyless entry a mid-year change on the 2000? I had a 2000 Eurovan that did have keyless entry and as far as I know it was factory (although I did buy the vehicle used).

      Can't find a pic, but my key was not at all like the switchblade key. It was more like a regular ol' key except it had two buttons on it.

      Are you the original owner? Or are you a 2nd, 3rd, etc. owner and a previous owner lost the original keys and supplied you with cheap replacement keys that weren't for keyless entry?

      Mine is actually a '99 and I'm not the original owner. I do have an original VW key but it doesn't have any buttons on it.

      I would get that you actually have it but the key has jast been lost. Have you physically looked for the control module, or tried to scan for it with VAGCOM?

      Might be as simple as getting a new key. They were kinda expensive so it may have been lost and the previous owner decided it wasn't worth replacing. Also some of the cheesy used car lots would sell them on ebay and only give out the regular key to the new owner


      Edit: I just looked up the specs for a 99 MV and the keyless entry is a standard feature according to this link.

      Actually the owner's manual (if the OP has it) should have a picture of the keyless entry key.

      yea, I thought all VR6 EV's had factory keyless entry with the 2 button switch blade key

      BTW Meister. Did you ever get air bags in? I thought you said you did one time but you haven't posted anything about it in here

      My 2000 was a two-button key, but not switchblade style.

      Found a pic. This is what my 2000's key looked like (keyless entry but not switchblade).

      On all the VAG cars I've had with factory keyless entry, when the doors were locked with the key (physically locked with key, remote not used), the horn would honk, lights would flash at the same time door was locked. Can anyone confirm that EVs do that also? My EV does not do the horn honk, light flash.

      You can program/un program all those options with VAGCOM. So I wouldn't consider that any sort of test.

      Well, on a '99 there isn't a central electric (35) module to access through VAG-COM. All that is accessible on a '99 is the Engine, Trans, ABS and Airbag. I know that's different than the later long nose EVs. I'm confident the later EVs had keyless. I'm not so confident the 99/00 had it though.

      In fact, '99 still has the green dash illumination and three large dials for gauges similar to the B4 Passat... but that's another subject. :-) Back to the topic at hand. Thanks for all the replies.

      My '00 flashed the lights but did not honk the horn because it did not have an alarm like most other VWs of the time for the US market.

      My '00 had keyless entry, see above.

      *Early* 99s had that. Late 99s had the blue/red gauges and later cluster and dash. It was a mid-MY99 change.

      gti_matt, do you remember if your 00 had a flashing light on the driver's door?

    17. 12-04-2012 05:35 PM #17
      No blinking light on the driver's door.

      The two buttons on the key operated the power door locks and caused the turn signals front and rear to flash (IIRC two flashes = unlock, one flash = lock).

      No other indicator lights as to lock/unlock.

      No horn beep.

      No immobilizer.

      No alarm.

      Thanks. I'm going to have to look at the Bentley again but I think the wiring in that area looks the same for 99 and 00. Maybe I'd have a solution if I could find one of those 00 modules. It would be worth a try. Thanks again!

      If those keys on German eBay aren't that expensive and I had a '99 or '00, I would recommend simply buying one and going through the pairing procedure and seeing if the van responds.

      And if it didn't work, then just re-sell your key on US ebay...someone out there *with* keyless entry on a '00 or so probably would want an extra key or replacement key.

      The wiring appears to be the same. Probably could make it all work.... if I could find a key. :-) gti_matt you have a great point, unfortunately that auction if for a key with no electronics inside. Just a cover.....I haven't looked for a key yet at all but I'm betting that's a hard one to find with electronics. The hunt begins... :-)

      my ex's 92 Passat would also roll up all the windows if you held the key in the lock position. I always wondered why a later model wouldn't have the same feature
