Okay so this is my issue. I just purchased a used 2000 new Beetle. When I purchase the car, the car was towed to my house by supposed friends of a friend. The car was running. The guys that towed the car we're trying supposedly to bypass the Anti-Theft immobilizer because I only had half of the key. My ex had the key fob. I guess I should say it was broken when I purchase the car. The people who towed the car also have a 2000 new Beetle. When I got the car the dash was taken apart and the central computer or brain was in the passenger seat. Could they possibly have swapped my computer for their computer.
