Controls on my 05 Jetta Drivers Door, aren't working, even though I replaced the faulty wiring harness.

What Door Harness(s) did you replace? Why? List each function in Left Front Door that is not working. It is possible you damaged Left Front Door Harness. Are the other doors working fine? Disconnecting the Vehicle Battery is not necessary though it is safety step.

Got a vw jetta and dont have original key so when i hook up battery the alarm keep going off and cant get it to stop

As long as you have a key,original or copy, when you hook up the battery use the key in the door and turn it to the unlock position, that should de-activate the alarm. either front door should work.

My 98 jetta wont start because the alarm is still armed. and i unlocked all the doors but still isnt shutting off. and the car wont start unless the alarm is disarm. how do i just take the whole alarm out....

ok so the same thing just happened with my jetta. So heres what worked for me: take off the door panel (drivers side) and you should see some melted or bunched wires together. just snip them and leave them be. It was either the wires or the sensor that messed everything up. This should work.

VW Jetta alarm malfunction

Go to your local junk or scrapyard and pull them yourself. The dealer charges an average of 90-100 dollars an hour. So a lot of the money they quoted you for was probably for labor

Put your key in the drivers door key hole and turn it! Worked for me!

Is there an option to replace the window motor?  Perhaps a junk yard has one that you could pick up for pretty cheap, or AutoZone would carry it.
