Search Ebay for vag com scanner and buy one of those devices (usually in blue or orange and around a tenner + postage) Will put lights out and read codes most of the time.

V easy mate, just make sure you use the software with the lead as they are cracked together, google the how to use it took me a while to figure out that mine was the old vdo clocks but it will let you in to one of them, and I programmed a spare key for mine while I was at it :-)
