Factory alarm for 2001 cabrio, is it part of the radio?


No, it is not part of the radio unit proper. I have been driving my car since it was 3 days old without the factory radio. I could not tell you where the alarm is located, & I would not cut any of the original wires that lead to the radio to the harness, those might have something to do with the alarm, Vw tends to wire things funny

Check battery connections and cables. Ground may be broken. Remove cables and clean battery posts then reconnect cables.
Check ignition switch, replace as needed.

How can i disconnect car alarm on a 2000 volkswagon cabrio


On a 2000 VW cabrio, MAKE SURE your alarm system is disengaged (running the car and turning it off is one of the easiest methods to make sure you can remove the alarm and start your vehicle after you remove the control boxes.

look for the fuse box near you left knee, directly above the fuse box panel in a vertical manner, deep in the dash, is the control boxes for the alarm (they are not easy to reach, expect fustration but you can get to them from there). If I correctly remember, a rectangular silver box and a square black box will do the trick. Remove the three harnesses to the boxes and your nightmare is over.

Just removve the light if you do not need it. Or bring to a garage and have them hook it to a computer and turn it off. Or see if by disconnecting the battery for 5 to ten minutes anbd then reconnecting.

I put a new battery in my 1998 toyota camry and when i opened the door the alarm went off and i tryed locking and unlocking the door and trunk but it still wont go off and the car wont crank


That happen to all the time when I work with cars that have an aftermarket alarm.
First; disconnect the battery again and locate the override switch by the steering column lower panel, got to be there somewhere.

Now reconnect the battery, press that switch and turn the key on. that little procedure would reset the aftermarket alarm.

98 volkswagon cabrio convertable gls battery & alarm trouble


I had a simular problem with my car nto starting, but the alarm didn't have issues just the headlights and the radio not turning off. I replaced the ignition switch and the problem was fixed for a while until the ignition switch malfunctioned again. The ignition switch is a cheap plastic part that connects the key to the engine, and has a tendency to break. Maybe this will help. Btw, I have a 1998 and mine is not starting well, do you know anything about #3 relays? I think I may need to replace it, so that my car will start and not putter to a stop randomly while driving. The problem only arises when the car is not yet warm. Amy ideas?

I have a 1998 VW cabrio that I just replaced the battery and now the radio is in safe mode. I do not have the owners manual. How can I get the code?


You will have to call the dealer or search online for radio codes. You may have to remove the radio if you do it online to get reciever info. You may find the code on the back of the radio but usually not. Be prepared to pay for this info when you find it. If it was easy to get codes then they wouldnt be nessasary

How do I disalarm my 1997 VW Cabrio Alarm?


I have a similiar problem occasionally. In my 97 vw, it usually happens when the battery terminals are loose. I just take them off, clean them and reconnect and the problem goes away for several months.
