  1. The Beetle
    Good afternoon all! My wife has a 2013.5 VW Beetle Turbo (VIN lists it as R-Line) with the 2.0 TSI EA888 motor. Sunday I went to run out to the store and her car would not turn over at all. I put the battery on my Noco charger and let it charge through the day and unhooked it last night...
  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I have a p0605 (ROM Error) and comes back immediately after clearing. I've concluded my ecu has failed. So my question: I was planning to swap the OEM ecu with a used (cloned) one. Only difference is that I'm also planning to have the immobilizer deleted. Anyone ever run into problems with a...
  3. New Beetle & New Beetle Convertible
    Greetings from NZ! I have a 2002 Beetle which has suddenly refused to recognize the remaining key fob that was working before. I have two keys, one of them hasn't worked since I got the car (recently). The one that worked was fine until recently. What happens is when switching on the ignition...
  4. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hey all, so I recently disconnected my instrument cluster because I found out the previous owner had broken off the two mounting points so it was literally just sitting flush against where it is supposed to be screwed in, and after plugging it back in my immobilizer triggered and now it won’t...
  5. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hello, I tried searching for this on Google, but I could not find anything useful only results on how to adapt a key and not how it works. I'm a little into tech and like understanding how things work. So, when you put the car in adaptation mode how does it know a key is used, how does it do...

    Cheers. From the looks of it, this question has been asked a thousand different ways. But nothing sounded like it accurately applied here, so I'll just ask for general ideas and insight. I picked up an 06 Cabrio 1.8T from a guy who said it just needed new keys. I assumed there would be more...
  8. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, I recently purchased an 04 GTI VR6, amazingly fun car, but I lost the one key it came with. I bought two new ones that have yet to be cut but when I brought them to a locksmith he explained that just cutting them will not allow them to drive the car, the immobilizer needs to be programmed to...
  9. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hey guys! I just was gifted a 2000 gti vr6, and I've decided to make it fast 🤙🏼 When I got the car, the ignition was was all beat to hell. So I thought, RACE CAR SWITCH. Long story short, I got my new switch wired, and took the key cylinder out, and the immobilizer is freaked tf out, and I...
  10. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I had my 02 jetta gls 1.8t remote tuned. I came into issues with this because the ecu in the car was tuned and I did not know, the ecu also had the immobilizer info on the ecu changed for some reason. So after the tune the immobilizer was triggered and car would turn on and die after a second. I...
  11. Golf/GTI VI
    I'm attempting to change out the instrument cluster in my 2010 2.5L Golf. The warning LEDs on the old one were dead when I bought it and there appeared to be a small amount of oxidation on the PCB when I opened it up to check it out (The LCD and all the gauges work perfectly). I found a matching...
