Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
The code is printed on a label behind your new instrument cluster. Since your instrument cluster is new and immobilizer control module is housed in it, it needs to shake hands with your existing ECU to be recognized. A VAG 1551/1552 scan tool or equivalent (ROSS-Tech) PC base application is needed in order to recognize the new hardware. All of your existing keys will be needed as well so it could be matched with the new code from your instrument cluster. As of now a warning indicator with a key icon is showing due to non recognition thus activating the anti-theft feature of your vehicle. Remember there is a procedure to do this right so click on ROSS-Tech for this information. You can buy the program from them too if you have a non Apple lap top and discover how easy it is working on your car. If you want the VAG 1552 it's going to cost you $1200 (that's how much I paid in 2000 for mine). You can get it and all official VW tools from Zelenda Tools.
