Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I want to disarm the alarm system for my Jetta, so I unhooked the module behind the light switch, the problem is I have a short somewhere in the alarm system. I don't know how to completely take the power out of the alarm system for good.
can You help me please?

it could be an air lock stopping the water from circulating properly i seem to recall this problem on the older VW Derby and audi 50 (same engine) there is a small bleed screw at the highest point on the cooling system that allows you to bleed this air out youll find its location in the manual
another thing to try is put a flushing agent through the system incase there are any blockages in the radiator itself
hope this helps

1.1 mm is the standard gap for a platinum tipped plug. Plugs for this car usually come pre-set but it's always worth checking before installing. Hope this helps.

you should be able to turn off alarm via key in drivers door if not test all doors to make sure they unlock. if any door will not lock that door latch will need replaced if work ok then try disarming alarm from trunk key or from the passanger door. if that works,you may need to have the key recoded to the car.

My friend you are faced with a catch 22 problem. The first thing I would like to know is, who installed the alarm system? Did you do it or was it professionally installed. If it wwas professionally installed I would go right back there and discuss the problem with them. It very well could be a defective unit. If you did not have it installed professionally I would disconnect the alarm and see if your battery still get's drained.If so, then the alarm is not the culprit, and you have some hunting to do. If not then you have some testing to do.Next what type of alarm is it? Try to google it. You may be able to find a trouble shooting guide to assist you. I know that you said you just replaced the battery, but the alarm very well may not be the culprit. It could be many other things as a loose fanbelt, bad diodes in your alternator, or some other componet draining your battery.

there is a socket on the back side and a retainer clip.do not touch the bulb,just the base plastic.the oil from your skin will heat up eventually and shatter the glass.

Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight. Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet. Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down. Next disconnect battery cables. Hold those out of the way. pull battery forward and up. Install in reverse order. Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules. Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset. This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom. The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.
