Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
Hi i have changed my golf 1995 gti 16v engine to vr6 engine 1997 wvwzzz1hzvw387463 with wire changing plus e.c.u everething fits well but engine starts and dies at the same time it is not running for 5 sec
There are a fair few things it could be after such a major job......but it sounds like the immobilizer is being activated as the engine control unit you have fitted wont be adapted to the original immobilizer control unit.i am pretty sure on a car of your age it is just a case of erasing the learnt values of the engine control unit .a diagnostic machine will be required.I would recomend a main dealer but you can probally find someone with VAGCOM who can sort it.Cheers
