I just bought a replacement remote at . It was $45 plus tax and came with free programming instructions. The dealership was going to charge me $80 to program. My 16 yr old son and I programmed it in less than a minute.

Matching instructions for the Clarion remote 93-99. Using 2 keys, put one key in the ignition, turn the igniton on, do not start the car. Close the door, put the 2nd key in the door lock, turn the key to the unlock position and hold it until you hear the alarm horn chirp, release the key. Press any button on the remote, you should hear a chirp from the alarm horn, press button on the 2nd remote, you will hear two chirps, 3rd remote will chirp 3 times, and the 4th remote will chirp 4 times, then lock the door with the key. Unlock the door, remove the key from the ignition, close the door and try the remote. You can match any remote to any car. You teach the car to respond to each remote.

Your son just bought a 1998 Jetta but lost the main key He has the key that will start the car but it does not allow you to open the trunk a valet key What is the best way to replace the missing ignit?

I had a 1998 Jetta, but I don't remember if they had remote entry. If it does, buy a remote entry blank off of ebay. Then, go to the dealer with the VIN and proof of ownership and have them cut and program the key. If it doesn't have remote entry, just talk to a dealer. Like you said, your son has the "Valet" or "Sub Master" key. Take it to a Locksmith and he/she can cut your son a new master. Ilco blank# X203
