    2004 jetta tdi
    hi guys i am having trouble with this 04 jetta, i hope someone has some ideas.
    the car cranks fine and it starts but for about one second then it will only crank without even trying to start untill you cycle the ignition switch the it will do the same thing, i have checked everything-or almost- in the car and i am concluding the immobilizer is not letting the engine stay running but i can't prove it, anybody have some info in immobilizer to share, thanks in advance.

    Check out the immobilizer FAQ article.

    does it have the flashing key/car light? Any error codes? Did you replace the keys lately?
