Customer Question

I have a 2008 Volkswagen Passat that was running when I parked it. I took it to someone to work on it because when driving at slower speeds it would try to overheat. It wasn't losing coolant because the overflow amount stays the same. When the guy working
on it tried to start it the next morning it wouldn't start. It tries to start but won't. He was told by someone that it was a security issue. I need help I have been without my car for a week now and need some answers as to what to do to reset the security.

The next step is to check the timing belt and the fuel pressure
