Hello, I'm the owner of small dealership/repair facility. Several month ago we purchased 2008 VW EOS VIN: WVWBA71F08V035413 FROM INSURANCE AUTO AUCTION. The vehicle was previous theft ( theft recovery vehicle). The ignition was broken, key was lost. We bought used steering column with all modules on it. Also it came with a ignition key. We have ROSS TECH SOFTWARE ad HEX+ can interface. As i read on Ross-TECH.com there are no way to program it yourself with out knowing SKC and other information. So we took it to local VW dealership for programming (Bert Smith VW of St.Petersburg, FL). The vehicle was there for couple of weeks. The service tech informed us that when they program the key. The vehicle was loosing the programming after couple of hours and they have to program it again but it never kept the programming. Then the tech found out that resistance is not absolute zero, because we spliced couple wires on the column. He requested full length wire from the key antenna to the cluster. We had to buy another used column to get this wire. The wire didn't solve the problem. The dealer asked us the get the car back. So the car starts and dies in 3 second. My question : Is it possible to disable factory immobilizer on the car to get it started? And if it's possible what the procedure? The title of the car can be provided at any time and it shows our ownership of the vehicle. It was 2 DTS : 01179 INCORRECT KEY PROGRAMMING UNDER 25. IMMOBILIZER AND 01299 INCORRECT IMMOBILIZER KEY UNDER ENGINE. Please let me know your ideas. Thanks in advance.
