This actually happened with my 97 jetta a little while ago. While i was driving i kicked the fuse box at some point and the fuse for the horn and alarm system came out. check and make sure all of your fuses are in place. If this fuse is missing, your car actually thinks its getting stolen.

You sure can, it is easy as pie buy you have to kinda know what you are doing.... and where the alarm is installed.
First, you take the negative side of the battery off as you will be working on the electrical system of the car.
Then locate the alarm. It will be a small black box usually mounted under the steering wheel somewhere.
Unplug all of the wires from the alarm. There should be wires in a pin block plugged into the alarm box. just unplug the white connectors from the black alarm block.
Cover the pins with electrical tape and make sure that you do this good, you dont want to have an accidental short.
Tape or zip tie the plugs up and out of the way, Leaving these in the car will make it easier when you or the next owner wants to put another alarm in the car. Furthermore, with you taping the ends of the wires up real good, there is relatively low risk in leaving them in there. Out of sight, out of mind... as long as you do a good job :)
this is not normal ,not far a 95 model anyway that i remember ,is this alarm a factory immobilisor or a add on boy racer weekend mechanic type thing ,because if it is then just remove the whole alarm and bin it
You do not state year of car.This is for most golfs 98-06.
switch ignition on
insert key to be programmed into drivers door lock
lock vehicle manually
press lock or unlock button
wait at least 1second
press lock or unlock button again
vehicle horn sounds to indicate correct programming.
if i remember right these golfs were immobilised by a transponder which is built into your original key and the circuits that are immobillised are the starter motor wire which can be bypassed and the other one is to the fuel pump relay but the loom goes straight to underneath the back seat , so you need to get a live to the fuel pump by some means !
your best bet is dropping the drivers side fuse box which is held by about four screws and then there is a plastic latch at each side that you just flick up by hand and then the fuse box can be lifted off its brackets in an upwards motion !
just pray that its not a factory immobilliser which is fitted because you will see where the immobilliser cuts are all made at the back of the fusebox which will make it so much easier to solder the original coloured wires together to get the car started .
and yep i have worked on this car many times and ripped my hair out over the original transpoder immobilliser bypass lol !
Most Golf and Jetta have their relays bunched together with the fuse block. Often, it would be inside the fuse box/compartment located under the facia panel, on the right-hand side, behind a removable cover. On most models, the flasher relay would be labeled 21.
Incidentally, sometime ago, there was a recall on some Golf where Volkswagen dealers will install a new hazard flasher switch/relay kit to remedy a common issue. You may want to try first Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
