Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
You have not disconnected it, even if you think you have, the car would not start. It is not that easy my friend.

Testimonial: "I know, I'm a mechanic but this is like alien tech, by-passed alarm relay (hot wired it), by-passed starter interrupt, et cetera. But seriously, how is this even possible for the alarm to sound when the entire cpu is disconnected? How can the lights flash if it isn't connected to the cpu?? Gremlins!!!!!?????? lol"

SOURCE: 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 !

Do you have a key fob? Unlock the car with that and you should be OK. My sons Elantra is the same way, you can only get in with the fob. I guess the car thinks it's being stolen otherwise. If you don't have a fob, I'm no help

SOURCE: Car alarm keeps going off
Jerome, look for the blast horn see if can can determine which wire is power and disconnect it, should be silent then, you will have to disable the alarm once power is restored, then reconnect and reset if desired.

try unplugging the car alarm and see what happens. its behind the glove box. these cars work without the alarm. the alarm box sometimes has dry joints in them.
