Can I disconnect the alarm on my 1999 new beetle? Can't afford to take it to the garage, but the alarm was going off every 5 mins so I had to disconnect the battery to silence it.

Asked by Nov 09, 2014 at 11:35 AM about the 1999 Volkswagen Beetle 2 Dr GL Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car alarm is going off every 5 mins and is running down the battery (as well as
annoying me and my neighbours).  I could only silence it by disconnecting the battery.  If I   
silence the alarm, the lights will still flash and flatten the battery.  I don't have any spare
funds to take it to the garage but I need my car for work as I work until 1 or 2am and taxis
cost a fortune.  Is there anything I can do as a temporary repair until I can afford a
mechanic?

If its an aftermarket alarm it should have a seperate fuse, I would try to locate and remove the fuse to keep the alarm from engaging.
