    We have a similar problem - it doesn't go off when we open the door, but sometimes the alarm light stays on after we open the door and then when we put the key in the ignition to start the car the alarm goes off. The only thing we've found to shut the alarm off is to get out of the car and put the key in the trunk manually and open the trunk. Then after we've opened and closed the trunk, the alarm disables and then we can unlock the doors (which I believe is the step where the alarm disables) and then we can start the car without a problem.

I have had the same problem, but what I constantly do now is unlock the door everytime before I get in my car. If it does go off just unhook the negative battery cable, then hook it back up. Plus the key kits for Jettas are only like $ 100 and are easier if you live by a dealer. Hope this helps:)

Turn the key in the door, with the door shut - usually that'll deactivate a VW alarm.

Most all aftermarket radios have their own fuse next to the wiring harness plug. Depending on the brand, it may only take a few minutes to pull the radio out of it's sleeve to check for the fuse. Usually, you can pop off the trim ring to see what you are working with.

The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

The battery keeps dying and the alarm keeps going off. Alarm switch inside car does nothing to stop it.


Does the battery hold charge? Have you load tested the new battery or left the new battery disconnected for a couple of days to see if it is holding charge.
It does not happen often but the new battery could still be the problem.
The other way to find out what is going on is to remove one or two car fuses inside the dash at the end of each day and if the car battery is not flat the following day you have narrowed down the fault.

If you have a keyless remote, use it to lock and unlock your doors-if not, lock your door with the door lock, close the door, and unlock the door with the key. This should reset the alarm.

make sure that the the remote's battery is still good otherwise it wont activate your vehicle but if it is equipped with an alarm ( your car), then possibly alarm stays on everytime you open your door with the key which has no chip in it. go get new battery for your remote.

i have a 1996 grand caravan, and i have the problem of alarm going off too. I also do not have a keychain to turn it off. All you have to do is unlock the driver door or passenger door with a regular key, and that stops the alarm.
