theres got to be anouher way I'm 200 miles from the nearest vw dealer
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.
unfortunately no other way the dash pod in car releases a different security code every time ignition is switched on and this is synchronised to vw server and has to match to allow programming the only other option is to get dash and key from the other car you got ecu from

There's is only one thing you can try but if it does not work then you Will need to do what the previous experts advised , remove both battery canoes off the battery and have them touch each other for about a minute then reattach them to the battery and see if that works hopefully you get lucky. I hope this helps please don't forget the feedback thank you
