I have a 2000 VW golf GLS TDI with a flashing imobilizer light. VCDS tells me I have 01179 - Incorrect key progamming. I want to get rid of the light (don't care if immo works or not) and I am not a big fan of electrical tape on an instrument cluster. Things I have: VCDS, Kerma Q-loader, bells, whistles, etc. What I don't have but would like to: SKC information on the plastic tag in my owner's manual. The backstory: I damaged the immobilizer chip to my only key when trying to transfer everything over to a new platic case. I realized I damaged the chip when the immobilizer shut the engine down. So after ordering new keys from the dealer and having the car towed for them to program the keys, I now have a flashing immo light all the time. The dealer claims I "shorted out" the immo circuit when I used the damaged key. and it would be $1200 to replace the instrument cluster. Another dealership I called had never heard of such a thing. A 3rd delership had heard of damaging the instrument cluster with a "bad" key. Any thoughts and suggestions on how to fix it are welcome.
