I have a 2006 TDI that won't start because of the immobilizer. Immobilizer indicator on the dash is lit, and the car starts for 1 second and then stalls. Recently replaced the battery. Need help - Thanks in advance

Try leaving the key on and see if that makes any difference after a half hour. Sometimes the battery trips it so you have to leave it on to reset it.

Thanks PearlGolf, I left the key on for 1/2 hour and indicator light went off. The car started right up. I hope this thread helps someone in the future. :bowdown

Thanks PearlGolf, I'm going to give that a try on my Jetta right now.
