ChittyChittybangbang, I have a 2002 VW Beetle TDI. I have tried multiple things people have suggested for my immobilizer to reset, but the car still just starts and dies after 1 second. I finally found a locksmith who would come out and scan the car for me. Key Faulty Immobilizer Sensor D2 ECU disconnected 01314 177 I have taken the dash apart and checked the ECU, it is not disconnected. I disconnected, then reconnected, but still to no avail.
