It sounds like one of the sensors for your alarm is faulty. I'd recommend taking it to a reputable mechanic, or calling one to see what they say. The alarm systems on 97 Jettas are tricky business.

Put a new battery in my 97 jetta gt alarm went crazy finally got alarm to shut off by unlocking passenger door but now my car won't start or turn over how do I fix


You surged the electrical system. Had a 97 Golf that did the same and had to be towed to the dealer for a reset. They disconnect the battery again and had to reset everything plus probably replace a few fuses. I'd start with fuses connected to your starter and engine systems.

After I changed the battery in my 97 jetta gt alarm went off finally got it disabled by unlocking passenger door but now car won't start or even turn over how do I fix this


Your electrical system surged. Had the same happen on a 97 Golf. Start by replacing fuses connected to your starter and engine systems. If nothing happens, you may have to hit a VW repair shop for a systems reset, unfortunately.

The car alarm goes off and the car wont turn over


im having the same problem on a 1994 jetta 2.0 liter gas car. if you put the key in passenger door and hold the key in lock position for 30 seconds with all doors and trunk lid and hood shut it will reset the alarm system. sometimes open trunk after doing this and shuting it again will reset the system. I did this and the car started and shut it off and wouldnt start agian until i went through the process again. weird and frustrating. still working on the problem.

Some of the alarms have a built in fuse you could pull out while others get power through a fusible link. I would suggest finding out how the alarm is receiving it's power and disconnect it from power..

1997 Jetta Drivers side door will not open.


One thing... If your last 3 doors works fine it's mean that problem is only in your drivers side. In VW like nickalxjoe wrote is air pump. So there might be an air leaking which you can hear. So if you can hear from where air running out try to fix this first.

CAR ALARM


We have a similar problem - it doesn't go off when we open the door, but sometimes the alarm light stays on after we open the door and then when we put the key in the ignition to start the car the alarm goes off. The only thing we've found to shut the alarm off is to get out of the car and put the key in the trunk manually and open the trunk. Then after we've opened and closed the trunk, the alarm disables and then we can unlock the doors (which I believe is the step where the alarm disables) and then we can start the car without a problem.
