Sounds like the sensitivity is set to high. The dealership should be able to adjust that for free. Hope this helps

I have a golf my 7, I can lock but leave a door open and no alarm goes off !


Hi
I don't know if this is relevant or not, but easy to try so here goes. I can press the remote button for locking and setting the alarm on my BM whilst the boot or a door (other than driver's) is till open. It appears to lock and nothing else happens - ie the alarm does not go off !!! However, when the boot or door is closed - even 3 - 4 minutes later, the indicators flash in the normal way and the car is locked and alarmed.
Maybe your car does the same. No harm in trying.
Cheers

Peugeot 307 xsi model 2002 remote control battery was low mechanic kept on to try starting despite alarm blowing, car not starting engine rolls but does not fire. the car was scanned reads: ECU locked ...


The clue is the remote control low battery (or replaced) == it's lost it's 'code' and needs to be 'reprogrammed'. Until then, the imobaliser (in the ECU computer) will lock the ignition. As soon as you tried to start the car the alarm was triggered (with the ECU locked the engine turns over but won't start).
Take it away from the cowboys and to a garage that knows want they are doing = and don't listen to the idiots who failed to actually read your question and would have you start taking the car apart or replace the starter motor

check the battery in key, check wiring harness to relays behind dash. I think you have a bad relay or connection or button on your key is sticking. Worst case is having shop diagnose system so you can repair.

Car would not start. Put a new battery in and car started. Then locked car and set the alarm. Came out a couple hours later car would not start. Could it be the keyless alarm system its been acting funny...


Yes this is a normal problem with after market alarm systems. The system will lock out the starter or ignition system. have the alarm bypassed or removed.

I bought a Chevy Trailblazer, used, had keyless remote access Viper Alarm after manufacturer. Had trouble with transmission and alarm....took to Chevy dealer they replaced transmission. Now the remote...


You need to find the black push button called the valet button. That is the overide. Get in the car turn the key to IGN as the alarm is going off and then you have either 5 or 10 seconds to push that button once and then 2-5 seconds later the alarm is shut off. To put the car into valet mode which means no alarm at all you put the key to IGN push that button once then pull key out at which point the blue light should turn solid blue.

Or option two is you open a door and hit the lock, then unlock, then lock button again on the remote and the blue led will be solid which means no crazy alarm.

Interior lights stay and alarm goes off every time i lock it


Your car thinks a door is open , thus the light stays on. When you lock the doors with the remote it activates the alarm system. 10 sec later it senses that the a door is open and alarm sounds.
I have a 99 passat as well and I just went outside to see where the switch on the door is. Can't see one anywhere , it must be inside the door (part of the latch mechanism). I tried to arm the alarm system by locking the doors with the remote while the door was still open , sure enough the alarm went off about 15 secs later.

Key goes in the driver's lock and only opens the driver's door. Car alarm goes off when door is opened and will not start. Have tried multiple times. Can you help?


Does it have remote central locking. If it does then it needs to be opened with the remote control. By opening the door with the key is the same as picking the lock to the alarm system so it put's on the alarm and imobilise's the car and actavates the alarm. Hope this help's Cheer's
