Not easy to diagnose without equipment, experience and numerous tests.
Possible: Low compression, valve timing or lash, ECU defect, stuck injectors, bad wiring or spark plugs, vacuum leak. Even fuel leak possible.
Have the vehicle diagnosed by a certified electrical technician. DO NOT START CUTTING WIRES just to try and "bypass" the fuse. This fuse may be feeding more than one component and you could cause bigger problem.
hi, will you please help. l have a 1997 2,6i vw microbus it was running fine. l drove and back and parked it in the garage, after 3 days l tried to start it but it only tries to start and wont catch the idling. it immediately cuts off as soon as it tries to idle. the alarm work, as well as the central locking.
Unfortunately the ignition barrel has been replaced with a new key,which has not been adapted to the immobiliser.The three core wire is from the reader coil which is supposed to fit around the ignition barrel.Obviously the key head was taped in the right position for the reader coil to read the key chip.Now the immobiliser is doing its job and cutting the ECU to stop it from running.It will take persiverance to find the right position to tape key back to coil for engine to run.Then your local VW Commercial dealership can readapt your key.
sometimes it depends on the type of allarm, if it is factory fitted they are a nightmare to do as most of the wireing for the allarm is intergrated into the loom, where as if it is an after marked alarm ( one fitted later on ) it shouldnt be to bad but still a long and complicated job to find all the wires and reconnect the originals bypassing the immobiliser/alarm if you are a complete novice this should not be attempted as you could immobilise the car completely, best thing for you to do is get an auto electrician to have a look at it for you, sorry its not much help
theres no easy way around it i,m affraid.the engine control unit needs to see a signal from the immobilizer to allow the car to start.if it was easy to bypass there would be no point.i assume the car starts and cuts straight out ?.that is the symptom you should have.have you had it diagnosed ?.most immobilizer issues on a polo aint to expensive to sort. A bypass is not a option though sorry.
