Hey everybody, just joined the forum and need your expertise.
I have a 2002 Beetle Turbo S with about 43K miles. I had no problem driving my car in the morning but when I started my car in the evening, the electronic immobilizer light is flushing. After a couple of trials and then I noticed that the tip of the key is chipped. I tried with another key which is in pretty good condition but electronic immobilizer signal wont go away and I can't run my car. My battery is less than half a year old. How can I fix this problem? Really appreciate for any help and suggestion!

The dealer can deactivate it. Not sure if you can do anything with VAG-COM or not.

The key has a chip to turn off the system, if the chip has lost it's code it has to be re-synced to the car or it will never start.

Alarm key is different and can be user coded, the immobilizer can't.
