So, I needed to replace my VW key with a new one, because the key ring broke off. I got everything transferred over, but I cracked the RIFD pill pretty bad, and the piece inside the pill is exposed on one end--nonetheless I put it in the new key, and luckily, the car runs without activating the immobilizer.

My question is, will the immobilizer come on while the car is in motion should the RFID chip stop working? In other words, I don't want to be traveling down the highway at 70 miles an hour with the car shutting off...

Certainly the car is smart enough that once the car has been started for a few seconds are is put into drive, that the immobilizer is not working then.

Anyone know? If it's a safety risk, I'll go buy a new key (dreadfully).
