Welcome to Just Answer!!!

Sorry for the bad news but the only way to reprogram the system is vw specific scan tool that the dealer only has because the programming is done trough the online server if the vehicle does not stay running you are going to have to have it towed to the dealer you may have a issue with a component in the immobilizer system . I hope this helps.
