Hey im in the process of purchasing a VS Vacationer... Now the old owner has told me that the main set of keys will unclock/start the car perfectly.. whereas the spare set will only unlock the car.. wont actually start it? any ideas as to what the problem is so i can sort it out straight away?

Cheers

Yeh the spare key most likely dosn't have the keyhead (remote), and is just a key.
Therefore, it won't have the included immobiliser functions.

1 battery, I think they might mean that the spare key maybe dosnt have a keyhead. Any way just take the good keys to your nearest Mr Mint and get 1 cut and a new Keyhead about $75 last time I got 1 done.
