Sounds like you have an immobiliser problem.your car probably has a transponder key.if you have a spare key,try using that one and see if it works.if not,you need to have the car put on a diagnostic machine to see what fault codes come up.have you dropped the key by any chance?if so the chip inside the key has fallen out and you need a new key coded to the vehicle...good luck

My car, polo 1.6 2003 starts den dies almost immediately


why does the blue box say 2005 swift and 03 polo?, confusing , so I will answer in the generic. (any modern car)

any engine dies for vast reasons, I have a list of 50 .
but breaks down to 4. (in pure physics) Otto cycle engines, GAS.

1: lost DC 12volt power to the EFI system( electronic fuel injection)
2: lost compression on more or all cylinders, 150psi min. is a goal.
3: lost spark, weak spark or mal-timed spark.
4: bad fueling, (too little , or too rich fuel injection)

The ECU works hard to sustain running, via idle speed control valve
and spark timing tricks.
when the above 4 go bad, the ISC function fails and the engine
stalls.
so does, skipping 60,000 mile tuneups. that cause any of the 4.

Vw polo 1.2 12valve


Get a fault code read done. On the point of mono motronic injection (which this is not) the mono jets NEVER suffer from dirty throttle bodies as the upstream injector washes it clean each time it injects. The 1.2 is multipoint injection and these throttle bodies DO get clogged up.

Choke comes on when engine is warm on 1999 VW Polo


How do you know the choke is on? I would think it was fuel injected.
Even earlier carb models had engine management boxes to control fueling.

VW Polo Classic, fuel efficiency problem


Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.
