I bought my 2000 beetle 1.8t with a non working instrument cluster about 2 weeks ago. I went and ordered a used cluster on Ebay. I also ordered a uncut flip key with a new transponder chip in it. i need to sync the key with the used cluster and my ecu. I put the used cluster in and it works but shuts the car off in about a second due to the immobilizer system. Had to put the non working one back in. Im not concerened with theft so if i can bypass the system that would be great but if not then i need to know what route to take in reseting all the componets. Any help would be great. Not knowing how fast or what rpms is bad enogh but the fuel gauge also is not working is worse. I already ran out of gas once.
