Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
I recently changed the battery on my car VW GOLF 1999, which is fitted with a GEMINI alarm system but i had to disable it coz i couldn't reset it. i have read all my manuals but cant find any code nor any instructions. please help
I think the model of the system is 7200/7300.
when i switch on the alarm (with its special key) and start the car, it goes off and sounds for 30s then goes quite for about 10s and then sounds again. I have a radio in the car which i think it is somehow connected to it coz i could see it was asking me for a code, which has since disappeared. Car starts but alarm and flashing signals. Radio also works.
Now remote central locking isn't working.
Any help is appreciated and thank you all in advance

SOURCE: alarm system in my 95 vw golf
if i remember right these golfs were immobilised by a transponder which is built into your original key and the circuits that are immobillised are the starter motor wire which can be bypassed and the other one is to the fuel pump relay but the loom goes straight to underneath the back seat , so you need to get a live to the fuel pump by some means !
your best bet is dropping the drivers side fuse box which is held by about four screws and then there is a plastic latch at each side that you just flick up by hand and then the fuse box can be lifted off its brackets in an upwards motion !
just pray that its not a factory immobilliser which is fitted because you will see where the immobilliser cuts are all made at the back of the fusebox which will make it so much easier to solder the original coloured wires together to get the car started .
and yep i have worked on this car many times and ripped my hair out over the original transpoder immobilliser bypass lol !

The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.

SOURCE: car clicks when trying to start
When you try and start the vehicle does all the lights and radio and stuff go off? And does the starter make any weird noises when you try and start it? I would go to the parts store and ask them to check your battery if you can drive it there. lol..........they will be happy to check it out for you. Still acts like it could be a battery issue.
