Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
The way the factory immobiliser works is-: the immobiliser will let the engine start the it will check the key if its correct it will carry on running. If there is a problem with the immobiliser the car will stop within 1 second. There is a modified immobiliser control unit and reader coil from Volkswagen. Programing will need to be carried out to code the control unit to the engine ECU then the keys need to be programed to the immobiliser. Coding requires a PIN which if you still have it is on a plastic key tag with a scrapeable panel on it. But it requires computer software to program

Sounds like the immobiliser is dead. 1996 immobiliser in south africa qould leave the car dead but 97 onwards cuts out the fuel supply so car starts and dies. it might be fuel relay but i doubt it. try throqing fuel into the intake manually. if it stays on for longer its prob not immobiliser.
