Don't use the forum's built in image uploading.
You can post images by using an image host like photostand, photobucket, imgur, etc. Theres a sticky somewhere detailing it

2006 MK1 Citi golf immo light on won't start

Post by paulo7 »

Hi everyone.....my name is Paulo from Namibia, Swakopmund i have a citi golf 2006 that wont start because the immo light is on. This happened because the car has been standing for for some time and the battery was flat after several attempts. I've connected the diagnostic and it indicates that the immo is active. I can only read the engine ecu but not the cluster. What tool can i use to fix the immo? Can one bypass the Shurlok or is it only for central lock?
