I have a 2002 19Tdi passat.

Last week I parked it at work then at lunchtime I went to take a trip to the shop and the car will only start and cut out a split second later.

It nearly seems like its some sort of immobiliser or something, The car has been left here for nearly a week and still only doing the seem thing :(

I have checked the fuses to the right of the dash but all seem ok and im afraid to leave it in to garage and be ripped of big time.

Any help would be greatful cheers

hi, if you want to start your car,follow these instructions and it should start, 1-make sure battery in remote is good. 2-start car and let it cut out,do not turn off leave it on the ignition, 3-leave for ten miniutes,turn off and now start, this should sort out the problem. let me know if it works, it worked on my 2000 passat tdi

Is that the procedure for programming a new key?

The same thing happened to my 07 passat, after months finally sorted it.... Faulty fuel pump....very common problem apparently....

Try this, keep your tank over half full and it will always start....but drop under half and it will not start.... ..
