Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Had original radio replaced-no problems until I bought new battery and now can not key in alarm code. Assume tech bypassed something. Each time I attempt to start car, alarm sounds. Any ideas?
Lock your door and hold the key in that position, and then turn it the other way and hold it until they roll up, this should set the alarm back. If that doesnt work try replacing the radio with the stock one, your third option is to bypass the alarm module.

My car, 2000VWPassat, is doing exactly the same thing as of Wednesday April 7, 2010. The dealer has been looking at it for 6 hours and they said they have absolutely no clue what is happening. They are elevating it to an "engineer".

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.
