1. Disconnect Negative Battery Terminal.
2. Turn Ignition key to RUN(where it is normally, when driving).
3. Reconnect the Battery.
Should be OK, now, but if not-
1. Disconnect Both battery terminals. Hold them together for 60-90 seconds (drains memory current).
2. Turn key to RUN.
3. Reconnect Battery.
If there is still a problem, it needs professional repair.

SOURCE: cannot disable anti theft alarm driving neighbours mad

There should be a relay under the hood for the security system, if you can not find it, try jacking the front of the car up, it should have a sensor that tells it that it is being towed and should turn off, unless of course it has a bad wire that is grounding out.

SOURCE: 1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: How can you turn off or reset anti-theft alarm in

You cannot shut it off, If was that easy a thief could steal it.

You need to get the code and fix the problem. Most likely the problem is the key tumbler failed. If this is the case the code would say something like could not reconize key

My car, 2000VWPassat, is doing exactly the same thing as of Wednesday April 7, 2010. The dealer has been looking at it for 6 hours and they said they have absolutely no clue what is happening. They are elevating it to an "engineer".

This is the problem due to your anti theft alarm system. You have not mentioned which brand of anti-theft alarm system you have? Anyhow, most of the systems have a reset switch inside the kit, open the kit and on the main board, u will find the reset button, press that and hold for 5 sec, the system will be reset. Otherwise, there are 2 or 3 fuses with the wiring of kit, remove those fuses and ur engine will wake up but the anti-theft system wont work then, hope this will solve the problem
