Hey.
I bought a passat tdi-00 115hp last week.
Now it start acting wired.
When i start sometimes it says immobiliser active and the engine goes off after 2-3 sec.
Is it the key who needs new batteries or what. I have read a little about it here and it seems to be difficult to turn immobilizer off permantley. How do i search for fult? Some tip and i would be glad.

The immobilizer has nothing to do with the key remote battery. It's possible to delete the immobilizer but you have to reflash the car's computer. The message that you are getting means that you are having an immobilizer problem. First have the car scanned for codes and see what error code you have. It may help you fix the system instead of guessing what is the problem.

Welcome to the forum. welcometomyturbodies

Yes these imobilzers are a pain in th a**e if you want to read about my http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f4/passat-immobilizer-4472/. You can try all the little tips in FAQ but I've tried them all and it doesn't work for me. I'm not saying it will work or not but you have nothing to loose have you?

Do you have access to a VCDS? ;)
