I have a 1998 Jetta GLX that was "locked out" from starting and I assumed from the alarm system since we did some work without disconnecting the battery. I heard somewhere to turn the key in the trunk lock to the left for 10 seconds. It started right up after that. Hope it works for you!

Imobiliser most likely cause get it tested
alarms & mobilisers are not a good combination as you can have them in conflict with each other!

Alarm keeps going off how do we fix it


It's possible the key fob alarm button is stuck or failed in alarm mode? I don't know how far but move key fobs a long way from the car to see if that is a possibility with the car locked. Disconnecting the battery may have added to the problem. Security thinks the car is vulnerable. Any other components removed? Have the error codes read by an autoparts store.
That may reveal a problem.

The engine wont start and the tamper alert system keeps interferring when it's on. What can I do to fix this problem? We believe it may be the fuel line stopped up, but I want to keep more options open to...


Could you explain more? I know mine did that. If you set the alarm off or unhook and reconnect the battery it will disable the computer and the car will not start. Try reconnecting the battery. That will set the alarm off then insert the key into the drivers door and turn it to disable. It could also be problem with the alarm system. Sorry if
Im misunderstanding.

I have a mercedes A class and the alarm keeps going off even when i am driving it


it's a simple problem because the alarm set button on the fob is where you grip to start the car. start the car, arm the alarm! just hold the front and back of fob not sides when turning it.

Alarm/ indicator lights keep flashing when i turn the car on


Yes.. the circuit is stuck in the safe mode. Usually when you disconnect the battery it goes in the safe mode as if someone is trying steal the car and cut the battery wire to cut the alarm off, so it goes back on as soon as the circuit completes. So just get that cleared up and you will be fine.

Car Alarm/Door lock


This happened to me too...It turned out to be that my door was out of adjustment, which caused the door position sensor to not know whether the door is closed or open. Sometimes my light on the inside of the door would flash (because the car thought that the door was open). Once the alarm did activate, the car would sometimes think that the door had opened, thus causing the alarm to activate. It was cheap to have fixed...I think it was less than $100 at the dealership.
