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 !

You will need to dry out all the electrical connections(plugs)Usualy done with compressed air.Sounds like a water based short that usualy goes away once you dry it all out.Also pay particular attention to ignition system.Good luck.

Alarm sounds everytime key removed from ignition?


There is a switch either in or on the driver door that turns on the interior lights and tells the module the door is open and the key is still in the ignition, this sounds the alarm, check all the doors and make sure they turn the interior lights on and off when the doors are opened and closed.

You can open By the handle.
But you will need desengage the little bar at the Lock cylinder.
and maybe you can damage the cylinder or handle.
If you have Aftermarket Alarm on your car.
Try to open de hood Pulling the hood realese cable.

But if you don't have aftermarket alarm.
Get a Flat screw driver, and try to insert between the door and body At the upper right corner of the door. Driver side.
If your Radio Anntena is Solid and you can remove easy.
Remove and Insert Beside of the screw driver and PUSH the UNLOCK buttom.

Ok.. I hope this help on your problem...
