      2005 VW GTI 1.8t Engine Swap Problem with immobilizer - Just did an engine swap and I went to start car and nothing but security light - I then swapped out the ecu using the one from my new engine and still nothing - I read that there is communication between the ecu and dash cluster so I swapped that out as well and now it starts up and then shuts back off with the security light on dash - I was told there is a bcm or comfort controller under the steering wheel so I swapped that out and same thing start and then shuts off - Not sure what to do now was thinking maybe pay a locksmith to sync key but no one does it around my area...Is there anything I can do to bypass or swap out to get past this? Any help is much appreciated
