Alarm goes on without provocation at any time of day or night. What can I do to stop it.

Asked by Oct 27, 2007 at 06:37 PM about the 1998 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have taken the car to the dealership and spent $700.00 but haven't repair it. The alarm goes on during day or night and haven't been able to get it fixed. Locks from door and trunk were changed but still the same. I have to disconnect the battery every night so I can get some sleep. Please help.

I would suggest either pulling the fuse (if possible without shutting off other functions) or asking the dealership to just disconnect it permanently. Sounds like a BCM problem to me.
