I have a 1997 volkswagen jetta gl 2.0 and while i was driving suddenly my alarm goes off, so i shut off the car and go outside to unlock the doors and lock them to shut off the alarm but that doesnt work,...

I have heard of VW's of this era having issues with water getting on the alarm module board, which causes the alarm to go off without rhyme or reason. I believe the seal around the water deflectors near the windshield cracks or degrades. The alarm module should be under the hood near the windshield on the driver's side, under a plastic cover. If you can locate it, you could try drying it off and seeing if that helps.
An alternative is that the wiring in the door could be getting wet, if the seals are no longer good.
If you just need to make it *******, remove the fuse for the horn, if you can find it.

Where is the button to open the trunk?

I have a 98 Jetta and the trunk unlock button is in the center armrest storage compartment. It's a square button. Should be the same on a 97 Golf. Hope this helps.
