Instrument Cluster (Immobilizer circuitry) Repair Service for 2000-2005 VW Beetle.
Repair service resolves common problem with the Immobilizer Coil Circuitry (located within the instrument cluster). Circuitry failure prevents key transponder recognition by the instrument cluster and causes a no start condition.
"01128 - Immobilizer Pickup Coil (D2) - 35-10 - Intermittent" is typically stored in the memory of instrument cluster.
(If the instrument cluster does not power up at all, is unstable or experiences erratic behavior such as power cycling, there may be a need for more thorough rework or REMAN procedure, including (in some cases where corrosion damage has set in) the need to replace the main circuit board - PLEASE REFERENCE ITEM/SKU 1301.)
2 Year Warranty
Service requires removal and shipping in of your instrument cluster. Your instrument cluster will retain all original coding (including immobilizer identity and odometer state). Repair service is designed as a plug and play solution upon return of the instrument cluster.
Please note that in some cases keys may have been erased from instrument cluster memory (by dealership or locksmith) in order to try to resolve the no start condition through key relearn. Since the instrument cluster does not see a key signal on the coil circuit, the procedure typically wipes all keys and does not complete the relearn process (resulting in 0 keys shown in the 25-Immobilizer block). In that situation, keys will need to be relearned after the circuitry repair procedure. If you would like keys relearned for plug and play solution, we will need all keys to be shipped in along with the instrument cluster (so that we can perform relearn procedure on our test bed). If key relearn procedure has not been attempted prior to sending the instrument cluster in for repair, all keys will be retained as per original config and no key relearn is required.
