Thumbs down not running

i Have a 1999 Jetta 2.0, the ignition cylinder broke on it, i couldnt turn it off and wouldnt start. with the batery disconnected i puhed in the garage to work on it I replaced the ignition cylinder, now it starts but wont stay running longer than 3 seconds, giving it gas doesnt help. The key cylinder is the same, doesnt come with a new one, so i dont see how reprograming is an issue. there are no codes on the check engine and from what i read if you dont have a dash light for an immobilzer than you dont have an immobilzer. The car ran perfect before hand so i think i can eliminate mechanical issues. I also bypassed the new cylinder by removing the crank switch and manually starting with a screw driver, same results. Help please, im lost and google has failed me
