Generally speaking, there are 8 positions in the car door lock for VW Audi Porsche, there is only one cutting in the ignition, it is NO.9 position. We tend to think the key that is made according to the car door lock can directly turn on the ignition, and when the ignition can’t be turn on, we will think there are more lock wafers in the ignition than the car door lock. But, it is only one cutting in the ignition switch for Touareg, A6L, A8, Phaeto, the difference is it is in the position of No.9. Any one key with No.9 position cutting can turn on the ignition. Technically speaking, it is not a mechanical lock; it is only an electronic recognizer.
