Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Electronic immobilizer

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The immobilizer helps to prevent the engine from being started and driven with an unauthorised vehicle key.

There is a chip in the key. It automatically deactivates the immobilizer when the vehicle key is inserted into the ignition lock.

The electronic immobilizer is automatically activated when the vehicle key is removed from the ignition lock. In vehicles with Keyless Access, the vehicle key must be outside the vehicle   .

The engine can only be started using a genuine Volkswagen vehicle key with the correct code. Coded vehicle keys are available from a Volkswagen dealership   .

If a non-authorised vehicle key has been used, this will be displayed in the instrument cluster. The vehicle cannot be used if this occurs.

The vehicle cannot be operated properly if you do not have a genuine Volkswagen key.
