Angry 2002 passat dies a few seconds after start up

the car starts up and runs , and responds to the throttle , but about 2 seconds after it starts uo , it just completely shuts down , doesnt sputter out or anything , just dies like someone hit the kill switch. Any ideas ? anyone seen this before ?

Does it immediately restart or do you have to let it sit for a while? Fuel pumps have been an issue on these cars. Could also be ignition switch issue but that is not nearly as common on these.

you can try starting it again right after it dies , I dont think its the fuel pump because when you give it gas , it revs up , so its getting fuel.
