Since yesterday my car (audi a3 1.9tdi - 2001) has decided not to start. I turn the key the engine kicks in and then cuts out. The engine immobilizer warning light is flashing so I assume it's something to do with the key??? Can anyone help with some suggestions or fixes???

Cheers,
Gary

Welcome to the forum. welcometomyturbodies

Yes it sounds like the pain in the ass immobilizer problem, it will run for 1-2 seconds then stop?

Have you done anything to you motor.

Are you using the same key you've always used, do you have a spare key you could try?

You haven't replaced the car battery have you?

Do a search for immobilizer in FAQ.

Hi Keith,

Haven't done anything to the motor or the battery and I'm using the same key as always. I've tried the spare keys last night to no avail.

Immobilizer Problems

Hi,

I have an Audi A4 1.8T (2003) and I have the same issue. Can you advise what the result was from your troubleshooting this problem? Did you eventually get this fixed? If so, what did you do?
