It could very well be your ignition switch may be damaged/need to be replaced. common problem 97's I have seen 3 like this so far. if you turn the key to lock the car and your alarm beeps to tell u it is active then its not the alarm and is very likely the ignition switch. you can cross the terminals to start the car until it is fixed. also be sure to check the relays and fuses as well.

Put a new battery in my 97 jetta gt alarm went crazy finally got alarm to shut off by unlocking passenger door but now my car won't start or turn over how do I fix


You surged the electrical system. Had a 97 Golf that did the same and had to be towed to the dealer for a reset. They disconnect the battery again and had to reset everything plus probably replace a few fuses. I'd start with fuses connected to your starter and engine systems.

After I changed the battery in my 97 jetta gt alarm went off finally got it disabled by unlocking passenger door but now car won't start or even turn over how do I fix this


Your electrical system surged. Had the same happen on a 97 Golf. Start by replacing fuses connected to your starter and engine systems. If nothing happens, you may have to hit a VW repair shop for a systems reset, unfortunately.

Have 97 vw jetta, disabled alarm how to get radio working


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.

Check, clean and tighten your battery posts, and the power connection to the starter and ground. Make certain the battery is good and charged, Perhaps you have a bad starter motor, or the engine is frozen (will not turn over). I think the ignition switch is okay, because your lights dim when you try to start. This indicates power is getting to the starter (at least some).

no...the started sylenoid is bad..change the whole starter (225 at autozone with a llt war) and you'll be good to go. They even test it for you when you get there. BUT WATCH OUT, WHEN YOU TAKE OUT THE BOTTOM BOLT, IT ALSO RUNS THROUGH THE TRANNY HOUSING, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A JACK UNDER THE TRANNY AND MOTOR UNTIL IT GOES BACK IN OR YOU WILL TAKE A WEEK TRYING TO GET THAT BOLT IN.
