    Default Toureg Key fob not releasing after switching off

    I have 2015 TOUREG V6 Diesel. Intermittent fault where the key fob won't release from ignition at times. Doesn't matter what i do it is stuck, but does EVENTUALLY release for no apparent reason.
    Any ideas?

    It might have something to do with the ignition barrel? I have seen a guy on gumtree here in Cpt, specifically advertise fixing this on TRegs....... Perhaps get some graphite powder to lube the barrel.

    On the older Touareg, there's a small release button in the recess of the keyhole. Get a pen/paperclip and press that button when next it gets stuck. It's a release in case the key gets stuck.

    this one doesnít have start button. Key fob required.
