You probably have a bad microswitch in the door latch assembly. It lets the computer know if the doors are open or not.

Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.

Try "clearing the cache" by removing the negative battery cable for a few minutes. Before doing so, be sure you know how to reset the clock and radio codes & presets.

Driver side door ajar light comes on 2006 chryler 300 c


alarm will obviously sound because the anti theft device thinks door is open...maybe it doesn't think ...it mis detects
check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

I have a golf my 7, I can lock but leave a door open and no alarm goes off !


Hi
I don't know if this is relevant or not, but easy to try so here goes. I can press the remote button for locking and setting the alarm on my BM whilst the boot or a door (other than driver's) is till open. It appears to lock and nothing else happens - ie the alarm does not go off !!! However, when the boot or door is closed - even 3 - 4 minutes later, the indicators flash in the normal way and the car is locked and alarmed.
Maybe your car does the same. No harm in trying.
Cheers

The alarm goes off when you open the door and the car will not start, but has power


Try pressing the lock and unlock buttons on the remote, holding for a few seconds, then trying the unlock and lock buttons to see if the alarm disarms...your description indicates the car alarm is still armed!

this happened to us when we got a new key and had it programmed with the car. anytime we locked the doors and opened them with the key instead of the remote, the alarm would set itself off. we took out the fuse for the alarm.

lock with key,electric door lock button,or remote and alarm will set. to disarm you have to use the key or remote to open it.the reason it woulnt disarm from drivers door is either the door lock cylinder switch is broken or the wire to it in the rubber boot that connects the door and the body is broken.
the remotes are cheap and programing is easy,procedure in owners manuel something like lock drive door with elkect. lock switch with door open then push and hold unlock untill doors unlock then turn key off.you may have to fix that drive door lock cyl.switch first though mabee not dont know for sure

2003 VW Jetta ''door open'' alarm goes off while driving


The door latch located in the door panel has a micro switch built into it assembly. It is what detects an open door. A new latch is about $150. If you could find a shop to replace it for you. You could also try buying some plastic-safe contact cleaner/lubricant and spraying the latch assembly out and opening/closing the door a few times to work it in.

1997 Jetta GL Alarm


First to turn off the alarm you simply put the key into the drivers door and turn it to unlock the door twice, this is the factory setting to turn off activated Volkswagen alarm. As for the power locks they are air activated, in the trunk near the latch there should be a small electric motor that drives a small air pump with air lines running to all your locks. If this electric motor as worn out your locks will not operate, simple fix replace the motor. I'd try a used one first from a scrap yard to make sure but always check to see if there is power to the motor (you will need another person with a test light to perform this job). Let me know if this works. Vdubs 4-ever !
