    help! im not sure if my key will work!

    i am a new user here and i have a question for everyone. i recently bought a remote key for my 1998 volkswagen beetle, but i was reading somewhere today when i was looking up how to program it that the remote i bought wont work for my car. i bought the remote with the 3 square buttons, but the website said that the remote portion wont work with my car because it has a different frequency? can anyone confirm if the remote will work for my car or not? thank you!

    You need the remote with the two buttons. Lock and unlock. Have you tried to program them using the two key method? Put good key or valet in ignition and turn on. Put key in driver door and hold to lock. Then after 5 seconds or so press the lock button while keeping it turned to lock. This should make the lights flash and program the key.
