There is a known problem with the window control units, the door central locking works through these, unfortunatley it has to go on to the diag machine to find out the cause of activation, which is in guided functions on the vas 5051 machine and may come up with a rotary latch fault this usually means a new window motor

I have a 1997 volkswagen jetta gl 2.0 and while i was driving suddenly my alarm goes off, so i shut off the car and go outside to unlock the doors and lock them to shut off the alarm but that doesnt work,...


I have heard of VW's of this era having issues with water getting on the alarm module board, which causes the alarm to go off without rhyme or reason. I believe the seal around the water deflectors near the windshield cracks or degrades. The alarm module should be under the hood near the windshield on the driver's side, under a plastic cover. If you can locate it, you could try drying it off and seeing if that helps.
An alternative is that the wiring in the door could be getting wet, if the seals are no longer good.
If you just need to make it *******, remove the fuse for the horn, if you can find it.

Is there a way to disarm the alarm system in the 1996 vw jetta? I'm having a lot of trouble with the alarm light staying on after I turn off the engine and take out the key. Then the light won't go off...


In a word NO,without totally destroying the computerised ignition system.only way is to use the remotes to arm/disarm the system(if you havnt got them you will NEED to buy them and get them coded to the car.takes 30 minites max.to reset see my jetta hints......

Horn just goes off for no reason


If you have a vehicle alarm installed the alarm module is faulty or set too sensitive. If you don't have any alarm installed there are a number of reasons for this to happen but in the end they all lead back to the ECM unit.

97 bmw 528i factory alarm goes off for no reason


disable the hood microswitch. just unplug it. That and the cabin sensor are the most probably reasons the alarm will go off.
Alarms are useless. Totally effin useless. So it goes off.....then whaddya going to do. Shoot someone? Call the police? or listen to it drain the battery over and over again.
But....you can't disable the alarm totally. The bmw engineers have tied it into the main computer. you can however disable the sensors one by one so it doesn't set off the alarm. Hood sensor....Hood sensor....that's the culprit.
