SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 97 vw jetta w/aftr mkt. alarm drains battery and disarms on own?

My friend you are faced with a catch 22 problem. The first thing I would like to know is, who installed the alarm system? Did you do it or was it professionally installed. If it wwas professionally installed I would go right back there and discuss the problem with them. It very well could be a defective unit. If you did not have it installed professionally I would disconnect the alarm and see if your battery still get's drained.If so, then the alarm is not the culprit, and you have some hunting to do. If not then you have some testing to do.Next what type of alarm is it? Try to google it. You may be able to find a trouble shooting guide to assist you. I know that you said you just replaced the battery, but the alarm very well may not be the culprit. It could be many other things as a loose fanbelt, bad diodes in your alternator, or some other componet draining your battery.

Power draw on a 98 vw jetta gt


There are two problems which might be occurring besides the obvious battery terminals needing to odd wire brushing to expose pure silver lead at the conact posts and inside the post clamps. My 2002 Jetta actually had a crushed wiring harness - Good stuff but it may have been assembled somewhere other than Germany and someone banged the wiring just enough to short or create resistance in the crushed copper. This was solved by a new wiring harness under the hood which also involved the Diesel glow plugs burning up all the time. Second problem may be badly installed diodes in the Alternator. I heard that some have them installed backwards, but only one of them in the group, so of course that would play havock with your charging system even though it will have enough forward power to run your engine. Also the control plug-in wiring on the Alternator sometimes gets salt on it and corrosion then won't let the system be able to get currant to your Alternator to make any power. This is a cheap problem to fix, just buy a new $8 Alternator plug-in and solder it to your wiring cable with good heat shrink wrap insulating tubes and a hair dryer.

I changed the battery and the alarm wont stop going off


You need to disable the alarm with the key in the door. Hook the battery up, then just stick the key in the door and unlock it. If you have door lock problems, you should be able to disable the alarm by opening the trunk with the key.

I think we need a new alternator - the alternator warning light is on - tried fiddling with some loose or funky looking wires with the battery - pretty sure its the alrernator- do you know what kind or...


follow these steps tp prevent replacing the altonator uneccesarily

Check that the fan belt is on and turning when the motor idles

If you have a multi meter set it to 20V

With the motor idling test with the multimeter across the two poles of the battery

the reading should be around 13.5 - 14.5 volts

If you dont have a multimeter remove the brushes and check them

They are located on the opposite side of the pully on the alternator (towards dipstick)

the brushes pop out real easy (just 2 star screws0

You can identify the brushes ( they are usually in a white plastic housing with a round black piece in the middle)

the entire unit is known as the brushes

Once removed there should be two copper contacts approx 50mm long

if they look questionable replace them and try it again

please keep in mind that you need to give the car a small rev to get the altonator to kick in.

My 98 vw jetta alarm wont stop going off


Maybe your key remote batteries need to be changed. Also have it scanned for DTC's which I believe you may have quite a few stored in memory, problems you weren't aware of.

98 Jetta...stopped while driving


During this past winter, I was driving my 98 Jetta GL and it suddenly shut down in the middle of the road. It restarted but would only go a little ways before doing the same thing. I got it checked out and it turns out I had to get new fuses. I knew someone who could put them in it was very cheap to fix.
