My daughter's 2002 Beetle wouldn't start - shut down a second or two after starting. The mechanic (not volkswagon) said that he "reset" the immobilizer system but that if it happened again she would need to bring the car to volkswagon. I'd really like to avoid that since just driving the car into a vw place always seems to cost me megabucks. Does anyone know what this magical "reset" would have been? Seems to me that he should not have been able to do that - although I am glad he did. Thanks for any help you can give.
