SOURCE: 97 vw jetta w/aftr mkt. alarm drains battery and disarms on own?

My friend you are faced with a catch 22 problem. The first thing I would like to know is, who installed the alarm system? Did you do it or was it professionally installed. If it wwas professionally installed I would go right back there and discuss the problem with them. It very well could be a defective unit. If you did not have it installed professionally I would disconnect the alarm and see if your battery still get's drained.If so, then the alarm is not the culprit, and you have some hunting to do. If not then you have some testing to do.Next what type of alarm is it? Try to google it. You may be able to find a trouble shooting guide to assist you. I know that you said you just replaced the battery, but the alarm very well may not be the culprit. It could be many other things as a loose fanbelt, bad diodes in your alternator, or some other componet draining your battery.

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.

97 VW Jetta won't start, no clicking


It might be starter wiring problem. Look for wire coming to the top part of the starter. One might be not tight enough or went off.
Good Luck
