Security system

Asked by Jun 29, 2017 at 11:13 AM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has been unreliable lately starting,
and I can't figure out how to solve it.
Sometimes my car will false start and then
my dash board shows a flashing car with a
key in it. I'm assuming when my car
doesn't start it triggers my security system,
so then my car just dies when starting, no
matter how much gas you give it. So for
background, I've replaced my starter,
battery, and fuel pump. I've also taken in
my car because I thought it was my
immobilizer, but they said it wasn't and just
reprogrammed my keys, but it's still
happening. I thought it could be air in my
tank, so I try to keep my gas tank full, but
usually if I give it gas, that'll make it start.
But now that doesn't work. I've tried
getting out and locking and unlocking my
car. I don't know what else to do and how
to solve the problem. Help?
