How do I get my alarm off if the remote Im using died?
The remote stopped working and I replaced the battery but it doesnt work now even with a new battery in it. Every time I attempt to start the car the alarm goes off. Ive tried locking the door manually and then unlocking it and nothing is working. Help!:)
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!
Really annoying my dash lights and speedometer no longer work... Assuming this is party of theft deterrent
....uh more bad news, auto door locks also disabled, I want to strangle VW
