Re: How to fix remote lock for Volkswagen Polo 1.2 Comfortline

You are in Chennai right? Which shop said like that?


AFAIK there will be no problems in getting an after-market remote locking for your car , even mine is after-market. I have been using it for close to 2 years now without any issues , not even the battery has drained till now!


Which part of Chennai do you live in? I can suggest you few shops in Anna Nagar if you are interested. Or else any other good reputed car accessory shop should be able to get it done without any issues.

Re: How to fix remote lock for Volkswagen Polo 1.2 Comfortline

Not sure about VWs, but my experiance might help you.

2010 Jan, when i enquired for my Fabia i was informed by one of the after-market shop guy that they cannot do it for Skodas since the battery would come with 5 wires for these vehicles where as other cars come with 4 wires only. So i had to finally get it done from the Skoda dealer for the price of Rs:9800/-

When i enquired recently the same shop guy said NOW they can do it.

My Suggestion is to get it done from VW Dealer itself to avoid any issues later.(though its costly)

I was informed the after-market remote locking for Polo cause problems. You have cut the company wiring and fix relays which is against companies warranty. Even if your willing to take the risks, after-market remote locking will cause other problems like battery drain, etc.

WTH , 18k for fixing fog lamps![frustration]


I think you can do it outside for cheaper price but it may void your warranty then. You would not want to mess with VW regarding warranty issues since they charge such exorbitant amounts!

Re: Fixing Fog lamps in Volkswagen Polo

We havent done the fog lamp fixing through the dealer, but yes he was charging around 16K for the installation in Delhi. Being at such a high price we decided against it.

@Dhaya - yes installing it after-market will cause warranty loss as told by VW

Wait till warranty expires then change stuff you want. I see thats the only way with VW.
