Key and cluster nay gave to be coded. Find an independent VW shop that has vagcom diagnostic equipment.

this sounds like the fuel filter most likely is cloged. The reason you don't run a car out of gas is because if you have crap in the tank and run it dry it will msot likely suck that all into the filter and clog it. So check for fuel pump noise and replace the fuel filter and it should fix the issue. and the above answer would be a good place to start to diagnose the dash.
