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.

I have a 99.5 tdi jetta a night ago I locked my car using my key fob which armed the system I recently went to unlock my car to disarm the system but my key fob did not work so the alarm is still armed I...


What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

I went to unlock the driver side door of my 91 acura legend and i guess i set factory alarm off.i do not have original key and my car wont start.. help p[lease!!!!!


The alarm must of activated , the alarm is controlled by the locks, go to passenger door and use the key to lock and then unlock the door, this will shut down alarm, you may have to use the passenger door to shut down alarm due to a bad switch in drivers door, this will allow you to start the car, you can also not lock door and alarm may not arm. let me know if the passenger door lock works, good day.

How do i shut my alarm off on my 98 jetta without a remote or where do i look for it otake it out


The key lock on the driver's side door is mechanically linked to a switch that turns the alarm on and off. You don't need a remote. Locking the door with the key turns the alarm on. Unlocking turns it off. I think the remote actually works through the same switch by mechanically locking or unlocking the door.

I've had a problem with mine intermittently setting off a false alarm as soon as the alarm is armed, which is about a minute after locking the door. It seems to be a problem with a switch in the trunk lid, because opening and closing the trunk is the only thing which relates to the problem appearing or not.

So my workaround, if the alarm is screwing up and I'm in a hurry, is to get out and walk around to the passenger side, open the door, press the dashboard door lock control to lock the doors, then close the door. That locks the doors without turning on the alarm system. To get back in I just use the remote or the door key.

Try "cycling the key in the passenger door lock. Turn it all the way to the right and all the way to the left.

How do i make the alarm go turn off. it is beeping and car wont start but this has never happened before


all doors hood and trunk must be closed and locked unlock drivers door with key alarm should stop (this will apply to factory alarms ). if you have an after market alarm you should use the control box. If battery is low or bad you must replace it before you can shut off the alarm
