Hi all,
My daughter just bought a 2001 new Beelte GLS. The car only came with the valet key, which works fine. We brought it to the dealer to have it checked out and have them make new master keys. They did so but both of the new keys set off the immoblizer (they lock/unlock, engage/disengage alarm, etc. just fine). Meanwhile the valet key still works perfectly.

The dealer says they think the instrument cluster is going bad, but unfortunately VW doesn't make these anymore. It also doesn't make sense to me because the valet key works fine, and I'm worried they are just fishing for expensive fixes.
Any ideas? I've attached the error codes they found below.
Thanks, Eric
