Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Since my daughters car stereo was stolen the alarm will go off randomly while the is driving. She has to get out and disarm by locking and relocking her door, I took the battery cable off then put them back on to reboot the system and it helped for a couple of months. Now the problem is back and rebooting does not seem to help and when she drives the alarm goes off every minute or so, so driving is now impossible. How can we turn off the alarm permanately
Check the alarm sensor under the hood, it kinda looks like a mushroom and its near the engine coolant bowl. Disconnect it. Check the one in the trunk AFTER the one under the hood. It's under the tapestry in the trunk door. Remove the 12 or so black pins retaining the cover . The connector is white if i remember or it has a white wire. Disconnect that too. If that doesnt help, answer me and ill tell u how to remove the alarm permenantly. Might also wanna check the wires in the doors, they are in a rubber tube in each door near the hinges. Volkswagens all have the problem of broken qwires in the doors. Fix and tape em if necessary, but start with the one under the hood. good luck.
