1997 Jetta alarm activates when I put the key in the ignition and turn. Beeps similar to when the car is being locked and the mini door alarm light activates so it is, in fact, setting the alarm which will...


I have this all the time what i tell the customer is let me remove the alarm system . The activation is in the door lock which always breaks by the way and people get stranded. Do this its the only way I can describe it when the alarm goes off. find the horn it will top section on driver side. Okay found it.take the single wire out it will disable the horn. but you will still have a horn not a alarm horn so we are still safe. now. find the starter there is a single wire that connects to the solenoid splice into that wire route that wire into the driver section and get another wire and attach it to the battery positive terminal all you will need now is a push button starter with the alarm on or off all you need to do is stick the key on if it doesnt crank then use you push button starter. that easy. or easy yet do you know where the starter relay is cross connect it and you defeated the alarm I do this for my customer VW alarm problem there are ways to defeat it and a few know how its cost too much doing the whole door thing and not worth it VW know there alarm sucks and people give up on it

My 97 VW jetta won't turn over. Please help!


it could be the ground wire (black) going to the starter. try putting a jumper cable straight from the black negative side of battery to the exposed metal part on the starter while a friend turns key. if it turns over then its the ground wire. if not its probably the starter solenoid or even the starter motor. solenoid would be cheaper than motor and more likely to be problem.

Horn beeps as if in an alarm mode


My 4Runner did the same thing. What I did was just put a new battery in hook it up and let it honk. Put the key in the ignition and start it and it should stop. It is in alarm mode.
