Hi I have a 2011 (11 plate) VW Polo. I came to leave work on Monday, put the key in the ignition and found my car wouldnt start and the digital display showed the message 'no key'. The key was definately in but wouldnt start the car.
The car was parked in direct sunlight and it was around 22 degrees C.
When i removed the key from the ignition the metal section of the key was boiling hot to touch, as was most of the underneath of the steering wheel in the car.
Its been at the VW dealership for the past 3 days with no answers from them as to what is wrong with it. No errors on the diagnostics and nothing else.
This has happened before when the car was about 2 months old and all the dealership did was reset the keys.
The only way to get it to start when it does this is to leave the doors open for a while and it eventually starts.
Can anyone shed any light on this matter or has anyone had this happen to them?
