    i have a 2002 VW GTI 1.8T and it keeps giving me this problem. it has a few mods like bigger intake, bigger cooler, turbo timer and coilset. the key has been recoded before and now it starts giving me problems again. it used to start and stay running when i boosted the car, but now that won't even help. i talked to thye local vw dealer and they charge $95 to recoded but don't promise it to work. they adviced me to get a diagnose done. this car starts costing me more than i can afford for repairs. please somebody help me with a cheaper solution.

Try your spare key first,if that doesnt work you will need a dealer to recode it unless you have the skc code for it then anybody with vag equipment will be able to do it for you

Vw golf mark4 over revs


Hello James,

If the engine revs up with no increase in speed, your clutch is slipping. Probably the reason the car was sold!

Immoboliser of city dont work


First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

  • Everytime when you had a new key you must programm all available ignition car keys before trying to start the engine with this new key !!!

  • You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel. Do you have this warning symbol lightning on the dashboard?

    This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

    From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.

    Use another ignition key that you have, and start the engine.

    You will need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

    Hi Frank
    If as you say....Nothing is happening at all when you turn the key, you appear to have one of two problems. A faulty starter motor--or--- A faulty ignition switch. If you can tap the starter motor while another person keeps the key turned to the start position, and the engine now starts you now know it is a starter problem. When doing this PLEASE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF GEAR.
    If it should start up, or even engage the starter motor while IN GEAR, serious injuries could happen, and I do not mean to your car.
    Good luck

    Electronic immobilizer


    most likely cause is the gauge cluster, this will have to be tested and service by your local dealership because the dash cluster and keys have to be coded. I have seen the immobilizer loose it's coding for apearantly no reason. therefore have them recode cluster and see if problem goes away, if it doesn't the gauge cluster will have to be replaced.

    VW Golf MK3 wont start


    fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!
