'00 VW Jetta thinks it's being stolen...

Asked by Sep 16, 2015 at 01:51 PM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ignition turns over (radio, etc works) but does not start engine. Mechanic says
the car thinks it's being stolen and turns off the fuel pump. Any idea how to
fix/disable this? Mechanic is not sure what to do, I don't want to spend a lot of
money on him just guessing.
