2005 VW GTI 1.8t Engine Swap Problem with immobilizer - Just did an engine swap and I went to start car and nothing but security light - I then swapped out the ecu using the one from my new engine and still nothing - I read that there is communication between the ecu and dash cluster so I swapped that out as well and now it starts up and then shuts back off with the security light on dash - I was told there is a bcm or comfort controller under the steering wheel so I swapped that out and same thing start and then shuts off - Not sure what to do now was thinking maybe pay a locksmith to sync key but no one does it around my area...Is there anything I can do to bypass or swap out to get past this? Any help is much appreciated

TSBs Where are they all?

I am looking all over for Technical Service Bulletins, particularly Bulletin #01-17-05. Searching this site yields nothing (zero) every time. Searching with google leads to anywhere but. Please suggest! Thanks, Rich.

Is there a way to see new threads ?

Hello. As I will be spending more time here with passatworld's new forum format not really to my liking, I would like to log in and see all new threads/posts since my last visit. I can't seem to figure out how to do this, if possible. Any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks.

What’s up
I’m i_got_tacos on Instagram
I’ve been on audizine for years
I am the driver of Trouble she’s a heavily modified stage ? Was three in 2005 when I first built her but that was many more upgrades ago
Last dyno was 638hp @7,900rpm I want 8 before the 250 shot I use when I just don’t know what they really got
I’ve had a couple 2.7’s that I stk of my own makings
I just did my third Cummins 500+hp now I have to do a transmission 😶
So since I can’t seem to ever keep my hands off what is just fine I picked up a casa 2998 a4 mt Quattro aeb engine body is actually decent just need a touch here and there , last 1.8 I’ve owned was my 1985 Jetta back in 92
I’ve had so much sir cooled run through my life I wouldn’t know what to tell you on that part

My eyes were opened to Audi because of the b series rally and my life was changed in late 1999 when I used to go street racing in Ontario California looking for street bikes that thought they had something
I was in Gen my 1958 beatle stripped out 1,900# car with a 2332 t3t4 ballistic turbo and throttle body injection (she was quick light to light or 1000 ft was what they usually ran in the wear house district
I lost second gear the first run of the night so I was sitting watching the rest of the night
Near the end a kid in a silver a4 tip lol with a v6 he was in a nice suit couldn’t have been 21 yet and had just bought it a few hours ago said it was the first s- something they sold in the L.A. area and who was the fastest import tonight a couple guys spoke up about this dude in a s2000 almost brand new that had oodles of work done I think he became the Asian dude on fast and furious anyway they lined up as a fun run
Light flashed and they took off almost the same moment looked the same to the eye . All you could hear was the Honda and the s2000 did win they said by a bumper
For me that was it if they made one in a manual I was going to get it and touch it here and there
To my surprise when I contacted a dealer the next day there was no possible way I could afford one of these new s4 a4’s at $60,000 fml
Early 2005 I got Trouble and I’ve had many others too but Trouble is mine always
I would still have Gen in the family but she was stolen in 2001 and never seen again
Anyway that’s my short intro
Thanks for accepting my account and I hope to learn and help others

Hello From FL, 2016 e-Golf owner

Hello From FL, new to the forum and have an e-Golf. Yeah they didn't sell in FL but eventually some of those made their way down here. I bought this car last month and it drives great. There were some charging issues and now it is being serviced. I'll know soon how that goes.
