Have 2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Wouldn't start-battery dead. Apparently dimming gradually over 2 or 3 days and them died. No problem took out battery. Tested at AutoZone-wouldn't hold a charge. Weak cell or cells. Put new battery in using proper sequence. Immediately alarm reacted, wipers moving at near full speed, horn constant, not intermittent, car won't start. No dash idicators will come on. Disconnect battery and re-connect. Same reaction and car will not start. No visible reset button for alarm. Keyless system with only "fob". Just replaced batteries in "fob" only 1 month ago. Any ideas as to what may be the problem.
Changed battery. Car won't start. Causes constant sounding alarm horn,
wipers continuously sweeping, parking lights flashing. "Fob" cannot and will
not actuate door locks or shut off alarm. Busted car. Any ideas??? Help!!!!!
Probably programmed to do this, best get rid of it before VW's are not worth anything...
