Im assuming you are referencing the imobilizer system. This programming can only be done by your dealer with special tools and computer. The key fobs and alarm system are mated and must both be reprogrammed together. Unfortunately this is why a replacement key for a Beetle runs about 250$ if its simple reprogramming the dealer will charge about $75 for the effort. if the fob or receiver has failed then its substantially more.

We just bought a 2000 VW beetle and it started 3 times. We brought it home and went to move it and now it WILL NOT start. It definitely is not the battery. We do hear a buzzing when we turn the key and...

It's entirely possible that it is the starter itself. You probably wouldn't hear any kind of noise from a bad starter. If it's at a shop and that's what they're telling you, I would believe it. The starter can easily be tested with a simple test light. It's only got 2 wires going to it, one large and one small. The large wire should have 12 volts all the time, the small one gets 12 volts when you try to start.
The starter is located more or less under the battery on the front side of the transmisision.
Best of luck;

There are two access panels oval in shape inside the trunk. There is a round speed nut inside which secures the housing. It will be stubborn and stuck, but once the nut is removed you'll have to pull out the assembly.

Starts buts dies instantly ! how do i reset

You may have damaged the chip inside the key fob. If you are using a new key it won't let you use it without the small chip located in the small part of the key lock assembly on the flip key end. If you have purchased and cut a new key you can take this old module apart remove the chip and put it in new assembly or tape it beside the ignition. The dealer is your only other choice, good luck.

Airbag light stays on

This is common on the beetle. More than likely it's diagnostic trouble code 00591 E24.
It will need to be reset with vagcom or vcds software. A few known trouble areas on the beetle that trigger this light are the seat belt buckles and the wire connectors under the seat. I've seen the connectors get loose and not make contact, and in one case the wires severed from sliding the seat. You might check this before you clear and reset.
Good luck...i hope this helps.
