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 tdiclub.com.

5w/30 10w/40 10w/30 all seem to be fine for this car - the castrol is good oul through and through so will almost certainly be ok But just to be on the ultra safe side... you can phone Volkswagen Parts/Dealer yourself and they will advise you as to the best oil to use depending on your cars mileage etc...
