Q.Does a Volkswagen have an immobilizer ?

A.Yes, Volkswagens have an immobilizer system. 

*Principal of Operation:

A transponder chip is integrated in each of the vehicle keys. A ring coil is fitted about the ignition lock. The transponder chip is powered by this coil. This means that no battery is necessary in the key. The power supply and data transfer take place in the same way as a transformer between the loop antenna (coil) at the ignition lock and the transponder chip.
