Hi guys, Joe here from Albany, OR with a 2001 beetle 1.8 turbo with a bad ECM. Does anyone know how to make a ECM from a different Beetle work in mine after swapping it for one from a wrecking yard? I have an ECM from the same year, engine, manual trans, everything identical to mine and it starts fine but after a couple seconds it shuts down when it realizes it's in the wrong car. I've tried leaving the ignition on overnight and removing both positive & negative battery terminals and touching them together but nothing seems to work. The immobilizer still shuts it off after a few seconds. I'm trying to avoid having it towed to the dealer to have them do it...Has anyone else had success doing this or should I just give up and send the original module in to be repaired? If you're wondering what happened to the original ECM, I was replacing a bad crankshaft position sensor by the oil filter and when I unplugged it one of the wires came out of the plug and grounded on the block and the ignition was on and the battery was still connected..Duh! Not paying attention to what I was doing obviously! So anyways if anyone can help me get that immobilizer to quit killing the engine that would be awesome...Thanks guys!
