First the alarm now my car won't start on a 99 vw golf

Asked by Mar 30, 2014 at 09:53 AM about the 1999 Volkswagen Golf

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so the alarm kept going off only
when I tried to start it.. To be honest
when I got the car I didn't even know
it had a working alarm.. We
unplugged the two plugs that are
supposed to go to the killswitch and
the alarm then plugged them back
in.. The alarm stopped now the car
won't start.. All the stuff comes on
but it's like it doesn't even touch the
engine... Why is this happening and
how do I fix it

Are you using the correct key for the car?

Yea its the right key.. but I figured out the problem.. It was just a freak coincidence.. I'm having the usual problems with the alarm which I believe is a bad module and as i was fixing that it just so happens that a part broke off inside the stearing lock.. But thank you so much :) it seems like once you find the solution to one problem and fix it a brand new one shows up
