running out of time
Sorry for the delay you have a issue with the steering column lock module these are common to cause this issue there was a recall for this module located on the steering column when they fail they have to be replaced and reprogrammed trough the dealer and usually vehicles get tower to the dealer with your same issue I have not had a chance yet to see if the recall is open on your vehicle yet since the Vw site is having issues at the moment I hope this helps positive feedback is highly appreciated thank you

thank you for the response. you are suggesting the module on the steering column is suspect? it would b very nice to know if the module and required programming are covered under a recall.2009 vehicle sounds a little old.can u bring up this info from VW website later?

Hold on ill try again
The recall was already done in 8/31/2011 have this checked again one other thing is make sure the battery is full and good just incase it has dropped down overnight and the vehicle will not crank if the battery checks out the next step will be to check the module I suggested . I hope this helps positive feedback is highly appreciated thank you
