Also if you don't your doors will lock when you start moving. If this should happen take your key and pop the cover on the right side of the door handle off (notch on bottom) and there is a key hole. If you have a proximity start like mine.
Hope this helps,
It sounds like your Jetta has the kessy keyless system? If so, what is your procedure for unlocking the steering column? Enter car, push button to turn electronics on (not engine), then cut the battery power?
