according to my partsman (who has had great advice for many years), you do not have to remove the door panel to replace the door handle which contains the cylinder lock. the handle is released with a screw which you can see when you open the door. you will need a starhead screwdriver or socket. A new handle costs around $40 at a parts store in my area. call around for a locksmith who will re-key your key to the new lock or use the key which comes with the new lock, your choice. i am in dealing with this also

I had a simular problem with my car nto starting, but the alarm didn't have issues just the headlights and the radio not turning off. I replaced the ignition switch and the problem was fixed for a while until the ignition switch malfunctioned again. The ignition switch is a cheap plastic part that connects the key to the engine, and has a tendency to break. Maybe this will help. Btw, I have a 1998 and mine is not starting well, do you know anything about #3 relays? I think I may need to replace it, so that my car will start and not putter to a stop randomly while driving. The problem only arises when the car is not yet warm. Amy ideas?

SOURCE: 1997 Jetta alarm activates when
I have this all the time what i tell the customer is let me remove the alarm system . The activation is in the door lock which always breaks by the way and people get stranded. Do this its the only way I can describe it when the alarm goes off. find the horn it will top section on driver side. Okay found it.take the single wire out it will disable the horn. but you will still have a horn not a alarm horn so we are still safe. now. find the starter there is a single wire that connects to the solenoid splice into that wire route that wire into the driver section and get another wire and attach it to the battery positive terminal all you will need now is a push button starter with the alarm on or off all you need to do is stick the key on if it doesnt crank then use you push button starter. that easy. or easy yet do you know where the starter relay is cross connect it and you defeated the alarm I do this for my customer VW alarm problem there are ways to defeat it and a few know how its cost too much doing the whole door thing and not worth it VW know there alarm sucks and people give up on it

Testimonial: "helpful work around but after replacing the LF door lock/actuator, I still do not know what is causing the problem"
Great I'm glad to hear you got it fixed. I was Leaning towards that solution but you got it figured out. As far as key fobs killing batteries, I do not have a solution to that yet. I have the same problem and have had with all of my Jetta's. If I figure it out I will let you know. Good luck and I hope the best for you.
