What you need to do is cut the alarm wire. the alarm wire is located in the door panel, and it is either yellow, red, or gray.
the alarm wire is the same as the unlock wire, so it will not matter if you cut it.

1997 Jetta GL Alarm

First to turn off the alarm you simply put the key into the drivers door and turn it to unlock the door twice, this is the factory setting to turn off activated Volkswagen alarm. As for the power locks they are air activated, in the trunk near the latch there should be a small electric motor that drives a small air pump with air lines running to all your locks. If this electric motor as worn out your locks will not operate, simple fix replace the motor. I'd try a used one first from a scrap yard to make sure but always check to see if there is power to the motor (you will need another person with a test light to perform this job). Let me know if this works. Vdubs 4-ever !
