The leather key fob fix did not prevent my WK2 from remote starting in my garage yesterday!! I checked another thread and found an easy disable of the remote start on the vehicle. I disconnected the hood latch switch and the remote start function is dead. It's an easy procedure and reversible if you want the feature back.
The first pic shows the latch switch connector on top for visibility, the second shows it tucked underneath for use. Not shown is a very small plastic bag put around connector to limit contamination by rain, road grime, whatever.
