Question about Cars & Trucks
My factory remote start starts the vehicle and within a few seconds it turns right back off on its own. The dash reads "remote start disabled, start vehicle to reset". It used to work but not anymore. No changes. Fob battery changed and it still does the same thing.

No problem. The key fob is two pieces. The key part and the remote. Open the key as you would to sue it. Where the key flips open you can see a small recess about where the line of the trunck switch. This is where the key separates. You can pull it off or pry it with a small screwdriver. Once separated with remote part in your hand this also splits in 2. In the same area you split the key off insert the screwdriver in this recess and the fob will open giving you access to the battery. Also can be done by hand. It is a little tight so you will have to force which is normal. No screws just clipped. Make sure the battery is positioned in the right way and that you have 3 volts when you test the battery. 2.7 volts will make the remote not work or act funny.

No. VW has made it nearly impossible to solve any key-related problems without a costly visit to the dealership. Battery must be replaced, and I assure you. the dealership will advise you that the ONLY place that you can find that particular battery is from the dealership. They like it that way.

Just had same problem. After ruling out easy checks like parking brake switch, and park shift selector switch, It was a burned out resistor that is located inside the front left fender. Take off the front tire, remove the inner fender liner, the ceramic resistor is towards the front. It crumbled when I removed it, Could only get replacement from dealer for about $65.
