could possibly be a faulty latch. door latch, trunk latch, hood latch. something sporadically not recognizing a closed latch to cause it to go off sporadically. a scan with a vw scan tool or a vag com should detect a fault in the convenience system.

Auto or Std trans??
If auto here's the issue...
Keep in mind Auto transmissions don't like to be run dry.
Also keep in mind that the 01M Automatic you most likely have retails for like $4000 just for the unit, not installation.
The corner trans guy can't rebuild the trans. This is a special unit
Just to check the fluid-
Hook up a Laptop with Vag.Com software installed.
Start the car and go into the transmissions data blocks and go to block 005, this will display fluid temp.
-ATF temperature not above approx. 30C (86F)
-Selector lever in "P"
-If ATF is below 30C (86F) bring the ATF up to test temperature.
Test temperature: 35C to 45 (95 to 113F)
-Remove ATF level plug from oil pan.
CHECKING PHYSICAL QUANTITY
If ATF drips out of hole:
ATF need not be topped up.
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.
If ATF does not drip out
-Remove plug from filler line.
-Fill with VW ATF (G 052 162 A2) until ATF runs out of level hole
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm (11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.
Too little or too much ATF will adversely affect transmission function.

first try the fues box see if you have a blown fues, next if you put your wipers on can you hear the motor running for them? if you can the linkage has poped off from the motor, its a bit awkward to get it back on and no gaurentee that it will saty on, you might have to replace linkage, or, it might be the cogs on the actual wiper arms have splayed and are now smooth so they dont grip to move, you can take them off by the nut on the arm , get a can (coke can or simular) cut a rectangle out of it the hight and width if the cog, rap it round the cog, (make sure it does not overlap on the ends) and force the arm back into place and then do the nut up, this is just a short quick fix if that is the case you will have to replace the motor, also you can check the relay to the motor in the fues box, give it a tap a couple of times it might work again if not replace it...hope you find these sugestions helpful
