2011 GTI Autobahn and Tiguan SEL get keyless go!
As part of the 2011 upgrades volkswagen is adding KESSY keyless unlock and starting to the 2011 GTI Autobahn and Tiguan SEL trim levels. In case you dont know how this works here is Volkswagen’s explication:
KESSY Locking And Starting System, electronic
The KESSY electronic locking and starting system offers the driver extremely convenient and secure access to the vehicle, without having to lay hands on the KESSY transmitter (AKA Key fob). The system is made up of two components used by the driver: the transmitter and the starter module. The transmitter only has to be carried by the driver, and the starter module is built into the dashboard/steering column depending on model . Within a radius of 1.5 metres around the vehicle, the transmitter switches the system to “Open” after rolling codes have been exchanged between the key and the vehicle. Then the doors, trunk or tailgate can be opened after touching the door handles or the logo on the tailgate (GTI). Once the driver is seated behind the steering wheel, the steering lock has already been released and the electrical system has been activated. Before that, rolling codes have once more been checked automatically between the vehicle and the key. The engine is started simply by pressing the starter button. The locking process is also extremely simple. One press on the buttons located in the exterior door handles activates central locking, including the automatic close function. Should the key have been left inside the vehicle by mistake, the system will refuse to lock the vehicle. In this way KESSY offers the driver the ultimate convenience and maximum security.
