2008 vw jetta srs door sensor


Hello,

I had a similar problem with my expedition--where the lights would not go off, allowing me not to arm the vehicle. I had read that in high humidity sensors and or mechanisms tend to stick. To solve my problem I used some silicone spray in every lock mechanism--cycling the locks by opening and closing the doors several times after spraying the locks. I have to do this once or twice a year.
Hope this helps--

My 98 vw jetta alarm wont stop going off


Maybe your key remote batteries need to be changed. Also have it scanned for DTC's which I believe you may have quite a few stored in memory, problems you weren't aware of.

1998 Vw Jetta opened door with Key alarm sounded cant shut off


I had the same problem. I had lost the wiring connection between the drivers door lock (where the key goes in) and the alarm. The only way to fix this was to rewire the connection.

I am not 100% sure what breaks the connection - probably wear and tear on the wire with the door opening and closing.

This has happened to me twice in the last 5 years.

VW Jetta alarm malfunction


Go to your local junk or scrapyard and pull them yourself. The dealer charges an average of 90-100 dollars an hour. So a lot of the money they quoted you for was probably for labor
