    Hello All!

    I'm new to the forum. A few days ago, I dropped my credit card in the door and removed the driver's side door panel to retrieve it. After putting it back together, the door switches and windows (all the controls for the door) would not work. I pulled some fuses in the fuse box under the hood and that caused my engine fan to spool up to a high speed and then shuts off and then repeats. It will even do this without the key in. Well, after that happened with the fan, the door controls started working again. Now, my car won't sense if my driver door is open or not. The inside lights won't come on if the door is open and the light on the bottom of the door panel come on, but they will for the other doors that are open. And the trunk open light won't come on now when the trunk is open. The immobilizer light comes on when I first turn the key on, but it goes out. Whenever I start the car, it will start right up and then immediately turn off. And then about every other time that I try starting it, the car will turn over but not start (but usually starts right up the next time, just to immediately die again). And during all of this, the fan continuously speeds up and then shuts off. I've researched online and it seems that this may be something with the immobilizer. I've checked fuses, left the battery off, left the key in the ignition to reset it, tried all 3 of my keys; but nothing will work.

    Also, my car is a TDI 5 speed.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Larry Brown

    door issues could be this: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/a5/wiring-harness-vw-jetta-repair.htm

    The immobilizer light always comes on for about half second and goes out in every normal start. If it's tripped it'll say the immo is on if you have the full screen MFD and light will stay on. That does sound like immo turning it off but it always lets the car start just fine, not sometimes.

    Look somewhere else. Sounds like you have an electrical issue. Check fuses, battery cables, and grounds.

    Thanks for the quick reply! I will try looking into the electrical issues.

    I've ran a scan with a VAG-COM tool and got the following errors. I had to run the scan as a MK-IV instead of an MK-V. I verified that it is indeed a MK-V through the VIN number, but it isn't reading the CAN controller on my car. Does anyone know why this is?

    Here is the list of errors that I got:
