Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 2001 VW Jetta wagon with a malfunctioning alarm system. The car is prone to locking itself, even when the driver's door is open and I'm sitting in the car. After one of these self-locking incidents, the alarm sounds after I close the door and put the key in the ignition. The key fob does not work to shut off the alarm, nothing works except the passage of 30 seconds. In the past day, the alarm goes off everytime I put the key in the ignition, also when opening the passenger door with the car manually unlocked. I took it to the dealership, where they said both front door latch sensors have gone bad, and must be replaced to the tune of $375 each. Seems odd to me, especially since I've never had a problem with the alarm when the passenger door is used, which is fairly frequently. Any other ideas out there?
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
