Engine Performance Diagnostic Las Vegas was created by scannerjohn
I have been studying with ScannerDanner via his book and videos for years. Anyone in the Las Vegas area doing the same? 
I would like to get together and discuss and diagnose posts from his webpage and any engine problems.

I have heard that the puddle light fuse #14 can blow when taking off the door card and will prevent startup. On a Pasat it's #14 don't know if the same for a Bora.

You said that the problem started after working on the driver door. You opened the door panel. What work did you do inside the door?
Just to make sure I understand right, the car started and drove prior to working on the door.

Ok. Good information. Did the car start and run before working on the door?

I believe you have put the car into anti theft mode. The immobilizer will not allow you to start the engine until the immobilizer is reset. Disconnecting the battery will also activate the immobilizer so you cannot start the car. Here is a procedure to reset. It may work.
Use Your remote key FOB and press the unlock button. Unlock the driver's side door using the key and switch the ignition to the ON position, but don't start the vehicle. If it's still triggered, roll up all the windows and exit the vehicle, then lock the driver's door with the key. Wait for around 15 minutes, and then unlock the driver's door, again, using the proper key. Start the engine within 15 seconds of opening the door.
Because you have a problem with the driver door lock you may need to replace it to fix the problem.

Hye thank you very much for your reply ,
Yesterday was a very busy day ,
I shall try it as soon as my battery is fully recharge ,
I have got only one key and it is not the remote one ,
Do you think the battery voltage in between the negative pole of the battery and the floating negative wire of the car make part of the anti theft mode ?
Is the fact that i did not disconnect the battery before working on the door may have the consequence that i have now ?
thanks a lot for sharing your time and knowlegde , I

I do not have a wiring diagram for your car to know all connections. When testing wires, the circuits should be tested loaded as well as this way the current level can be checked. A wire can show normal voltage unloaded and still be bad from wear or corrosion. Bad grounds will reek havock on an electrical system. Just disconnecting the battery will set the immobilizer. Working on the door lock system will do the same. The difference in the floating neg wire is probably due to the immobilizer. Once the immobilizer is set you have to clear it using the proper procedure. Not having the FOB is a problem as it is a critical part of resetting the anti theft system. Without the FOB you'll need a scan tool.
