Now i'm thinking that a fuse has blown when it had the jump start. Very common to happen.
Do you have a 12 volt test light?
Now it sounds like a fuse may have blown when it was jumped. If you have a 12 volt test light you can easily test every single fuse by turning the key on and probe both ends of each fuse and make sure it lights uo on both ends of the fuse. Check the fuses under the hood and the ones inside the car. If all is good, i hate to tell you but You won't be able to reset the immobilizer at home, can only be done with a Vw capable scan tool trough the online Vw server ...ugh...i hate these systems!
Any further questions?
