Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
Have to disable alarm,car wasnt starting so i took it 2 an arvada auto tech place after friends did tests n said everythings good,starter.battery,ignition,its someting between starter and ignition,they ended up charging me 1200 n said it was a starter and my brakes,which worked ok b4 there,now i gotta pump them and my car came back with no radio or alarm, i questioned n questioned them and swore they didnt do anything to them maybe week after shop, i also notice they broke my plastic door locks and got some at auto part store and trying to get them on they were too tight and somehow i put key in door to push them up, i guess the force was too much and the alarm started going off, luckily i was a few blocks from home cuz it instantly died again, think theres a short somewhere n alarm wiring?
First on the driver side remove the panel where the drivers knees would be. when u do u will be able to see ur fuses and a bunch of wires. way up in the dash there will be 2 modules, one has a a 6 wire connector and one has a 10 wire connector, unplug them both, then ur alarm will be off but it kills your starter, to keep the starter workin connect the 5 and 6 wire from the 6 wire connector together.

If you not good with a wrench don't try to remove it. I am not sure but you can try two different things one lock and unlock the driver side door about 3 time then put the key in the ignition and try to start it, someone else said to remove one of the battery cables wait about twenty min. or so and replace it and try. If you do have to have the guy fix make sure he takes it out and gives it to you.

I had the problem with key not going into the ignition on 2005.5 Jetta had to have the car towed and ignition replaced which cost 375$. But what i read afterwards is there is a locking mechanism in the ignition it is a white thing that slides so you cant get your key in this can be moved with a a small aharp object ant you can then get your key in!!!

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.

Same problem with an '03 Golf--remote entry, power windows, and interior lights stopped working. This was easily fixed by replacing fuse #14, (10 amp), located in the driver's side fuse block.
