    Could be a transponder fault, or a faulty coil reader (aerial).

    Though the car starts and runs, I wouldn't ignore it. It MAY not get better, last thing you want is to be stranded.

    VAG-com should pull any codes in the system memory.

    Like Siena says, if the car starts, no major worries.
    You still might wanna check the connection of your immobiliser. The easiest would be to remove the plastic bit on the right side of the centre console which is accessible when you open the door (it usually has some airbag warning message printed on it). Then you will see the loom which comes from the coil reader (I think it is usually white...) it can become loose sometime so you have to push it back in.

    I hope it's helpful...
