Have the battery checked, the alarm is most likely triggered by low system voltage, i.e. a failed battery.

Everytime you trie to start my 1997 Jetta G.O. the alarm goes off, how do i disconnect the alarm without unhooking the battery?


Try unlocking it from the passenger door (with the key). the driver door lock has a weak connection that wears out, then the car doesn't "know" you unlocked it from driver's side. Do you have the key fob to unlock it? If so, use it (unlock) then open the pass. door.
Please let me know if this worked! -Tom

Car alarm went off after I tried to start the car with a dead battery. It wont turn off!


Keep the jumper cables on the car as the alarm goes off, take your ignition key and open & close the drivers door lock. This resets the alarm.

Key goes in the driver's lock and only opens the driver's door. Car alarm goes off when door is opened and will not start. Have tried multiple times. Can you help?


Does it have remote central locking. If it does then it needs to be opened with the remote control. By opening the door with the key is the same as picking the lock to the alarm system so it put's on the alarm and imobilise's the car and actavates the alarm. Hope this help's Cheer's

97 VW Jetta won't start, no clicking


It might be starter wiring problem. Look for wire coming to the top part of the starter. One might be not tight enough or went off.
Good Luck
