the button in the fob may be stuck connecting the circuit, remove the battery and reconnect if the alarm goes off again it could be because of this.

This worked for me (radio in 2003 VW Golf):
Radio says "CHECK" but is otherwise unresponsive. Turning car or radio on/off doesn't help.
On the far right of the radio, there's a round TUNER button. Press it for 5 seconds. Your screen will then show some digits, but the unit is still unresponsive.
Press tuner button again for 5 seconds. Radio should now be 100% again. Let me know if this works for you.

I think you may have 2 probs there. 1 the fuse or relay or main switch for the windows. 2 a sticky door lock (Is one hard to push the lock button down on sometimes)

sorry , its usually difficult to test a vw starter off the vehicle, most dont have a front nose for balance, so armature touches coils. if you can mount it on an old gearbox on the floor, will be easy... the attach earth to the body of the starter, positive to b+ on starter, b+ on starter pin.

You can find this in your service manual or get one from a Volkswagon dealer. Hard for any mechanic to know all the symbols all the different manufacturers use without the manual.

The engine in this cars drive train is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM. Whenever a problem like this stall (or many other faults) occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a specail tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)
