    I was working under the steering wheel portion of the dash and must have touched a wire that set off the car alarm. Now it wont start and i have no idea how to turn off the alarm. I dont have a key for the doors or trunk(only the ignition) and the driver door doesnt even have any guts inside the door( its tied shut). What do i do?

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.

We have a 1997 VW Jetta. The alarm system initiates occasionally when we drive it and causes the horn to blow and the lights to flash. How can we either fix the problem or disarm the alarm system.

sounds like the alarm unit/imobileser might be faulty. my one did this on warm days when it was standing in the sun for long.

the unit is behind the glove compartment. as i know a bit of electronics i opened mine and found that there were a few dry joints. resoldered it and it was all good to go. soldering cost about R10 and new unit would have cost between R500 to R3000(used or new) (im in south africa)
