My friend wanted to start his car using my battery and he just removed the battery without starting the car first so i think somehow this affected the immobiliser, please help me on how to bypass it? I am stuck, totally.

How to bypass the immobiliser on a volkswagen golf mk3 1.4 16v s

The answer is in the question. Immobiliser, its worked and the purpose is obvious. The reason only dealers and specialists can do it is if it was easy then everyone would be stealing your car. If its not operating then change the key fob battery and make sure the car battery is fully charged, some systems wont work below 10 volts or so.

Battery ran flat on my 'R' reg VW Golf gti while I was away in Australia. The alarm was disconnected a couple of years ago but now the immobiliser seems to have triggered as there is no spark or petrol...

sometimes it depends on the type of allarm, if it is factory fitted they are a nightmare to do as most of the wireing for the allarm is intergrated into the loom, where as if it is an after marked alarm ( one fitted later on ) it shouldnt be to bad but still a long and complicated job to find all the wires and reconnect the originals bypassing the immobiliser/alarm if you are a complete novice this should not be attempted as you could immobilise the car completely, best thing for you to do is get an auto electrician to have a look at it for you, sorry its not much help
