I had no idea pulling the cluster would mess me up!

    Hi Guys
    New to VW and the fun stuff about them.I unplugged my cluster,removed it to clean out all the dust in the back of the vents and blast air through out,
    when I plugged it back in it flashes a key symbol indicating an immobilzer and the car shuts off after 1 seci=ond,
    What to do?

    It shouldn't do that. I've unplugged clusters plenty of times w/o prob so something is wrong.

    Try unplugging it again, checking all pins and wires for cracks, replug it in. If still not working, check out immobilizer FAQ and try those steps. good luck and let us know if it works!
