Did this (immobilized delete, same thing)?with a New Beetle to avoid having to go across the state to a dealer who did not want to see a 20 year old car. It runs $50-100, and with a legit person, it is money well spent if you do not think your car will be hot wired.I was having a PATS issue and my car wouldn't run. Sent in my pcm to a programmer and they disabled the PATS for like 80 bucks, also had them do a custom tune since the ecm was out. Now everything is all good. You can find them on the web and ebay selling the PATS delete.
