Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
1.9 TDI engine quits after starting for a few RPM's
Sounds like the immobilizer. Does the key light in the dash stay on when you turn it over?
Immobilizer is the code that the key has (it's actually a radio frequency identification or RFID chip). If the key code doesn't match the car code, the car will turn over but won't stay running.
If this is the problem, you'll need to take the car to a dealer to get the key recoded.
