I have a 2001 jetta every time I have my doors shut and put on my headlights it makes a beeping sound but stays constant like ehhhhhhhhhh it won't stop until 5 min into driving how can I turn it off??...

Sounds like the car thinks its off or the door is open and your leaving your lights on thats usally a warning once you turn car off or open the door to let you know that you forgot to turn em off so you do not kill the battery.

it could be the igitnition switch but from hwat i read its likely driver side front door lock microswitch stuck open.
if you have little can replace it your self and that will solve your more thing..microswich is part of the door lock unit.good luck.
see how to for passat below the jetta is very simialar and in comments the differences are explained:

Interior lights stay on wile i'm driving my 2005 lincoln navigator

Only one bad door switch should do that

The 20 min time out is the GEM or Body Module,
which is normal only because you have a bad switch,
otherwise it goes to sleep when either front door opens

Put radio on & open a door,the radio should go off
& kill the time delay if no issues exist

Radio lights up and changes stations, but sound doesn't always work . When you turn key off radio sound stops and stereo stays on til door is opened. Does the radio run off of computer??

your raido will stay on for about three min. unless you open the door it is just programed that far as the sound not always working eather you have a factory amp that is going out or the radeio is about to kill over.

When my headlights are on, my dashboard lights dont work

check dimmer for dash lights... and toyota kills dashlights if the taillight fuse is blown. so check taillights. sometimes the trailer connector will short out. :) good luck.

Check the electrical grounds for the taillights. In fact, get a diagram and check all the easily accessible grounds. Many of these are in the engine bay.
