    OK. I am in LOVE with the links in this list. But I’ve got an unlisted glitch with my 2001 TT 225 Coupe: the lock/unlock button located in the center of the car won’t work. The key fob stopped working at (I assume) the same time, but as the switch won’t do anything, I presume the fob may very well be innocent this time.
