I have a 2002 Jetta and when I re-installed the battery after working on the car it will not stay running when I attempt to start it. Is there a way to reprogram the key without going to the dealer? I have a key symbol flashing on the dash while attempting to start it.

Welcome to the forum Mikey. welcometomyturbodies

Have a read in FAQ there is one little tip you can try disconnect both battery leads and hold them together for a few seconds to discharge any capacitors in the electronics. Connect the battery backup and leave the ignition switched on for one hour. Some say 15, 30 45 minutes so an hour should cover all those three.

I personally haven't found this works http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f4/passat-immobilizer-4472/ but some on here have if you search?
