The immobilizer is a theft deterrent system located in the instrument cluster, the main car computer, a radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder chip in the VW or Audi smart key, and an antenna at the ignition cylinder. If your car has the yellow car/key symbol on the instrument cluster when you turn the key to "ON", it has an immobilizer. This light comes on for a second but quickly goes out when turning the car on and all is normal. If it stays on, you have an issue!
The main symptom of a faulty system or activated immobilizer is that the engine shuts off after a second or the yellow car/key symbol on the dashboard flashes. A very low car battery or car battery removal could also cause the immobilizer to become active.
