My 4Runner did the same thing. What I did was just put a new battery in hook it up and let it honk. Put the key in the ignition and start it and it should stop. It is in alarm mode.

It is shut down in an alarm. The owners manual says to unlock the passenger door to turn off the alarm and allow the engine to start. I had the same problem when I bought a 1996 Jetta whith a dead battery.

    My '98 Jetta is doing the same thing, but there is no keyhole on the passenger side door so I can't try that solution.

I have a 2002 Lexis RX 300, every time I turn the key on to start the car the alarm start beeping. Is there a way to stop this. It beeps even turning the car off.


So I talked to someone who suggested my battery might be dead and that I try charging it, but as "Bullmtnbiker" mentions, the horn blasted as soon as I connected the negative terminal of the battery to charge. Finally, I just tried connecting it and running into the vehicle to start it, and that stopped the horn blasts immediately and it started and ran fine. I just hooked up to a trickle charge overnight to get the wounded battery back in shape.

I have a Taurus 2004, and it happens that the car horn beeps 3 times randomly. does anyone know what would it may be?


the horn beeping at random is indicating a fault in the alarm system. alarms have their own battery which is balanced by the car battery and any unbalance ( corroded connections -bad earth, low charged battery in alarm, loose battery connections ) will cause the horn to sound --same as too sensitive a setting for the alarm or a intermittent power to the alarm

Re; 1996 V/W Jetta Alarm system won't shut off . Happened to hit the door lock button when the car was running and it triggered the alarm. Tried everything with the key in the driver's door and it will...


Disconnecting the car battery will reset the alarm system. When you first connect the car battery, the alarm will sound briefly, then stop. You will have to retrain the alarm system to recognize your remotes. The procedure for that varies from one year model to the other. On my 1998 you do it by putting the key in the door lock and holding it full counterclockwise until you hear a brief beep from the alarm horn. Then press a button on your remote and the system will learn to recognize that remote.

Got a vw jetta and dont have original key so when i hook up battery the alarm keep going off and cant get it to stop


As long as you have a key,original or copy, when you hook up the battery use the key in the door and turn it to the unlock position, that should de-activate the alarm. either front door should work.

Jetta no longer makes beeping sound when locked.


try honking the horn normally with horn button <key must be on> if horn works it is in the programing for comfort and convieniance system if no honk it's just the horn or wiring to horn.

Horn won't honk


You have a broken rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a ribbon that looks like a clock spring, it is called the air bag clock spring contact, anyway replace it and your problem will be fixed, be careful to disarm the airbag before you pull the steering wheel, disconnect the battery for 1 hour and then disconnect the airbag control module before starting any repair.
