You need to get your key reprogrammed at your dealer... Did u drop the key as this can sometimes cause the key to loose the code, i dont know hoe all i no is i had to get it done a few times.

How can you bypass an antitheft system on a 2002 tdi jetta?


If it is not a new key fob, it sounds to me like the immobilizer is activated. So, all the lights on the dash are working now? Is there a flashing key on the dash lights? One of the resets that works is put the key fob in, and turn ignition on without starting it, and leave it 15 minutes. And try again.

2005 gti (manual) the car will start then a light comes on. a key with a line thru it, then the car dies and will not restart


Immobiliser problem It will run for about a second and shut off. This could be the transceiver on the car or the key transponder. The Immobiliser needs to recognise the key to initiate engine start.

Check with VW as they have the scanner to check the system properly.

If a new key is required you may be looking at $400.00

My Golf 4 car key got broken at the rubber/metal neck,thus i couldn't inset the start the car. so got a welder and welded a small metal attached to the key to enable me have a grip.... oops immobile...


if your vehicle has a factory engine immobiliser the key has a transducer in the base of it that activates & deactivates the immobiliser so you will most likely have to get a genuine volkswagen key from a dealer to solve the problem.....hope this helps.....cheers
