    I have a 2001 VW Jetta VR6 that I've owned for about nine years now. I think I'm having a problem with my immobilizer. I have two keys and I've tried them both, so it's got to be a problem with the reader in the car. I'm hoping the "secret info" in the Immobilizer FAQ will help me get the car to the dealer without having to pay for a tow.

    I'm in Tualatin OR and my dealer is in Gladstone.

    It might but if the problem really is the ignition antenna, needs to be replaced. Sometimes the wiring goes bad.

    It worked!

    I tried the old "disconnect the battery" trick and it worked. The car started right up. Haven't had a problem since.

    Thanks for the excellent FAQ. Saved me a towing bill.
