Hi guys

I have a major problem - I charged the battery and now my car starts and is cut out with the orange immobiliser light flashing.

I have tried shorting out the cables off the battery for 30 mins and even left the battery off for 24 hours - still no joy!

Any ideas?

I ordered a VAG COM cable on Ebay - is this likely to work if I can somehow reset the ECU?

Welcome to the forum Dave. welcometomyturbodies

Your immobilizer is on. What were you doing before this happened just charging the battery and nothing else?

You have tried the normal trick disconnect both leads and hold them together then connect back up and leave the ignition on for 30 minutes. This can work on some cars but it didn't work for me http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f4/passat-immobilizer-4472/#post20396

The VAG-COM lead won't help you much as your buying a cloned lead but even a genuine lead won't reset the immobilizer.
