If it is like my Beetle then you have to open the trunk with the key to get the alarm to reset, and in my bug you have to be fast, I have to open the trunk and then close it and get the car started in about 10 seconds to get the alarm to stay off. Im still not sure thats how VW wanted it to work!?

The fuse box in my 2000 model is to the left of the steering wheel, roughly triangular and hidden when drivers side door is closed. According to the fuse chart, fuses #s 17, 6, and 38 all have little key symbol... I removed all three and this disabled the alarm system. No longer freaks out when I start car. Note: this has apparently completely disabled the alarm, so no more theft deterrent, but also no more looking like a bumbling car thief!
