Sounds like the latch on the door is going out. $350 to fix. try turning off the alarm with the key by openning the trunk.

How do I disarm the alarm system on my 1998 volkswagen?It wont start ,cranks but wont run..I changed the plugs still wont start,someone said could be in the alarm system to disarm it.


The alarm would cause the car not to crank, and the alarm horn would sound. You can try unlocking the car from the trunk lock to disarm the alarm. But crank and no start could be a bad ignition switch. Do the dashboard lights stay on or go out while the key is in the crank position? They should remain "on". Worn ignition switch could cause the car to crank but not start.

What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

My 98 kia sportage wont start


It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

1996 vw jetta alarm wont stop honking and wont start


Obviously you have a car alarm (do you?)
If until now was OK, then you have some problem with the alarm.
Try to disarm it and see what is happening.
Good Luck.

How can the alarm on a 1996 VW Jetta be permanently disabled? No matter locked or unlocked the alarm system is armed. Of course when it is on, the car won't start and the alarm/horn is blaring and annoying...


Alarm box is behind the abs light panel and headlight switch, Its kind of hard to get to but there will be a 6 pin and a 10 pin, the other box is for the headlights, unplug the 10 pin harness and pit a jumper wire from the red wire to the red/black wire. Alarm is bypassed

My 98 jetta wont start because the alarm is still armed. and i unlocked all the doors but still isnt shutting off. and the car wont start unless the alarm is disarm. how do i just take the whole alarm out....


ok so the same thing just happened with my jetta. So heres what worked for me: take off the door panel (drivers side) and you should see some melted or bunched wires together. just snip them and leave them be. It was either the wires or the sensor that messed everything up. This should work.

This morning I came out to start my 96 jetta and the battery seemed dead. So I began the process of getting a jump and as soon as we connected the jumper cables to the jetta the alarm started going off. We...


The immobilizer feature was tripped when the alarm went off. It sounds like the battery was indeed dead. My Nissan 300ZX used to trip the alarm when I jump-started it, although my Audi A4 does not. When the alarm is going off, you have to disarm it with the key or key fob first, or you won't be able to start it. Try putting the key in the door, lock it, unlock it, lock it again, and unlock it again, just to make sure you get a couple of arm/disarm cycles, then try starting it.

My 1999 jetta remote has stopped working.


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.
