If it is factory installed, it will be part of the diagrams found in the Haynes or Chilton manuals.
They are under $20 US and you will be glad to have it.

My sister has a 1998 jetta, the alarm keeps going off intermittantly. the mechanics couldnt figure it out and removed the radio. it still go off sometimes. recently she disconected the battery ground and...

Usually there will be a broken wire or 2 in the door wiring harnesses. Near the hinges for each door there is a rubber boot, inside are the wires for the door locks. Pull back each boot and take a look at the wires. If there is only 1 or 2 broken wires, you can splice them, but it get tough to do when there a a lot, and then it's best to replace the whole door harness. It's not easy, but can be done by a reasonably handy person.
Whenever the battery is reconnected the alarm will go off, it's just the way they are designed. I usually just hook the battery up and then disarm the alarm with the key in the door.

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.

1998 Vw Jetta opened door with Key alarm sounded cant shut off

I had the same problem. I had lost the wiring connection between the drivers door lock (where the key goes in) and the alarm. The only way to fix this was to rewire the connection.

I am not 100% sure what breaks the connection - probably wear and tear on the wire with the door opening and closing.

This has happened to me twice in the last 5 years.

Horn blowing and car wont start

Same problem on 98 Jetta at about 9 yrs of age.  Wiring harness was an expensive job.  Dealer replaced all wires going to doors so that alarm isn't mistakenly triggered by opening doors.  Dealer offered to remove alarm for a few hundred dollars, but couldn't assure us that the key fob would still open the door locks.  Who wants to give up power locks? My hunch is that wire in driver's door breaks with flexing over 9 years.  Could consider replacing short stretches of wire in hinge of drivers door if you're handy with a soldering iron.
