1997 jetta didnt have key so hot wired, ran fine for few days and just wont start now , why?


The 97 Jetta has a built in security system and if you hot wire anything it interferes with it and will shut the car down and will not start again. Un hook the battery and wait 5 mins and then hook it back up. The alarm might go off so use the key to turn it off and then try to start the car. That should fix it and if not I cannot fix it without seeing it. Sorry and hope that it works for you. It has happened to me when I switched out my stereo with an aftermarket one.

I have put a new battery in my key fob on a 02 vw passat now it wont work can you help ???


hi.
without knowing more about the alarm system (manufacturers or aftermarket etc) specific halp is awkward.
most aftermarket systems do not need the fob to be re-linked to the car.
most manufacturers systems that need to be re-linked can be done by turning on the ignition and then holding the button on the key fob for a second or two.

i would really need to know more about the alarm system before i could give any more advice

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)
