Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

Open Question

My 2001 Beetle's alarm goes off for no reason. It either goes off right after I lock the doors or I'll lock it, leave it in the driveway and it goes off an hour later. What's going on?

SOURCE: manufacturerscar alarm

My alarm is triggered when I leave the windows down a bit. There's a motion sensor for the interior of the car (I think it's thermal), so when a breeze blows cool outside air through the car's hot interior, it triggers. The interior sensor can be turned off by pressing the button just behind the driver's door and in front of the rear door. Try turning that off and see if it makes a difference. Post a comment with the results.

SOURCE: nissan maxima 2001 panic alarm goes off for no reason

Hello, I had the same problem with my 2001 Maxima. The dealer suggested new key fobs, but the eventual fix was the car battery. When the battery is on the way out, the voltage drop is enough to set it off, just as it would if there was a voltage spike when someone breaks in. I have no problems now!

SOURCE: ALARM RANDOMLY GOES OFF!!

the factory fit alarm is not voltage sensing .The best advice is to go to VW garage and get them to read the alarm causes,(they can check the last 4).this will give you a good idea where the fault lies.ie door lock mechanism,interior monitor etc..You cannot start looking for problem until you know alarm cause..

How do I turn my anti theft alarm off on a 2001 vw


Sorry, there's no way for you to do that, unless you have access to a VW scan tool like VCDS. If the alarm is going off, you most likely have a bad driver's door latch and it will need to be replaced to fix your problem.

Open the trunk with the key, it will disable the alarm. You probably need a new door lock cylinder, which you should look into. They're easy to replace, but take a while to get, as they have to be coded for your key. You can also remove the door lock cylinder by loosening the t20 torx screw near the door handle until the lock cylinder slides out(DO NOT LOOSEN MORE THAN NECESSARY TO GET THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT), then use a flathead screwdriver through the hole to activate the lock.

You may have left a door half open, or have a bad door switch. Until you find out what the problem is you can manually push your door locks with your hand to lock them without arming the alarm and still have your vehicle locked, and not have to worry bout hte alarm.

Have a 2000 VW Beetle. The alarm won't turn off!


My 2000 Beetle does same thing (although not all the time). Just found an internet post that suggests there is a problem in the door lock sensor. I assume you are using a regular key - not
the keyless entry - like I am. He also said that you can disable the alarm (also disables the
keyless entry - which doesn't bother me) by leaving the front door AND the rear trunk open and
starting the car up. Seems to work so far. I will get the door lock sensor replaced and turn the
alarm system back on (not sure how yet), and let you know if that stops the problem.

Drivers door won't shut or lock suddenly and light in the door does not come on. Is this a fuse and how can i mend it.


not likely a fuse if other door lock works. the little red blinking light comes on when factory alarm sets and alarm isn't setting because the drivers side door latch is not working properly and alarm thinks the door is still open because of micro switch in latch not tripping.
