There may not be any other way to fix it except to replace your instrument panel. That's where your immobilizer is located. Or you could try this:

Try cold-booting the car. Remove both battery cables from the battery. Short the battery cables together (away from the battery) for about 15 seconds. Reconnect the battery. No guarantees - I found this info at

Why my 1996 golf from turn off while driving, it sparks but I won't start, need to wait 30 min and it will start with no problem but if it keep driving it it will do the same thing... please help me

which engine? see list , mind blowing, and what country>???
doing a 60k mile tuneup works, at least once a decade.
ever do the list of parts, spark and fuel , per operators guide?
that be first, 99% of bad running engines are that.
my guess , (weak based on only 1 fact) is has lost fueling
the ECU in the all cars 96 tries 10x to stop stalls.
the reasons are this: (top list)
1: lost 12vdc power ,see dash lamps or other lights go dead at stall>?
2: lost spark (tune up time?)
3: lost fueling, (try test fuel start now.
4: flooded, are the spark tips soaked in raw gasoline. (use wide open throttle cranking, does that work? this cuts fuel. (a secret mode)
5: ISC dead? (start car with 10% throttle) ok ISC is funky. clean it.

can you save the stall with fast right foot? (key fact here)

My 2006 vw jetta tdi lost power and died wont restart am told need code to restart but dont have right code

You will have to have the fault codes read by a code reading machine . That will tell you why the engine stopped. I am suggesting that you check to see if the cam shaft is turning when you try to start it as the timing belt may be broken. Repair/replace items listed by the codes -reset the CPU with the code reader

Cutting out when driving

can be caused by 50 things.
but mostly ?
1: engine lost compression, (can do that hot only)
2: lost spark
3: over fueling or under fueling
4: lost electrical power (12v) to the EFI system.
5: overheated engine.? over 200F?

clanking, sounds to me (no pun) is pinging. (detonation.)
this can be a lean fuel mix. on a hot engine.

try using a scan tool OBD2 (no year stated above...????)_
and see if there are DTC thrown as it fails.
or before.

I have a Touareg TDi and it lacks power and is smoking.In addition while driving,it jerks and everytime it jerks the Rev Counter drops and rises again. After sometime it will completely cut out and not...

Do a compression check. It sounds like the valve timing. If the engine has had recent maintenance like tune ups, oil changes etc. the symptoms you describe indicate serious problems.
