1999 Volkswagon Jetta Alarm System

The Alarm will sound when you turn the key which does not allow you to start the vehicle

    I had a similar problem with my 99 Jetta alarm system.  Even after you attempt to disarm the system the car would not start.  I eventually had to change the entire alarm system.  however, what I did for awhile is open the trunk first to disarm the car alarm; then start the car, which started because the alarm thought it was disarmed, then shut the trunk.  Although this was a quick fix and I still had to eventually change the alarm system.

I had this problem 3 years ago, and it turned out that my battery would not fully charge. A low battery (still charged enough to start) was triggering the alarm all the time.
I got a new battery and it was fixed.

I also have a 99 Jetta and I ran into this problem once or twice. How long do you wait in your car after closing the door before trying to turn it on? I've found that the car sometimes will automatically lock itself and engage the alarm system if you are inside of it for over 30 seconds without making an attempt to start it. When this happened to me, I would hit the unlock button on my keyfab twice and then attempt to start the car. Lemme know if this works for you!

Jetta alarm


There are a few possible problems which may cause this. A bad wiring in one of the components that are part of the alarm system. (door locks, hood, trunk, radio and ignition).
Try checking the main wiring harness to each door, they are protected by a rubber boot that is in the vehicle body along the door frame close to door hinges. Common for wires breaking and causing this. A defective radio may cause this problem also,. Another is the hood / trunk switches or wiring.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled
