its very irritating, i have no drivers side door handle so it is impossible to shut off this alarm. if i cant shut the alarm off the car wont start, for we have this AMAZING little piece of tech shite that kills the ignition! i need to find a diagram for a fuse box relay so i dont have to murder one of my close friends. the owners maual is missing and i cant find one online, can anyone help me find one? :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
gonna be tough considering you didnt give us a hint as to what model you
i say just burn it
solve all your probs at once
The answer is better than the question. What a huge surprise. :clap:
Yeah just go into the fuse box and take out one by one till it stops :laughing:
if it were that easy whats the point of the alarm?
My guess is that he's talking about the factory security system. You can shut it off with either front door lock. And it's not that easy. You have to open the hood or door to pull the fuse, both of which set off the alarm.
Since you didn't state the type of alarm you have, it is probably a factory installed alarm (don't mean to repeat wvhobo). In this case, I would call the dealership and ask them what to do. I doubt you can de-activate it yourself as trying to do so will probably activate the alarm to begin with.
If you find the location of the alarm box, im sure there is a small harness you can disconnect, or some kind of switch on it.
sorry for the confusion, its a jetta GL and its factory installed so there is no passenger lock. just the drivers. id love to just take it and burn it, but its my only way to work! :orglaugh:
and in response to this, we did disconnect the sound to the alarm, but the lights still flash on and off like its being stolen :banghead:
At least my guess was 1/2 correct. Check around that area there might be a wire that is connected to some other box thats causing this. Otherwise take the system, go to the dealer, and shove i in his ass :thumbs:
That's a negative. The system can't be taken off without being activated (to the best of my knowledge) and the car can't be driven to the dealer since it won't start. Therefore, the only options are to either call the dealer and explain everything (my personal preference) or have it towed to them.
Nice thought if the car is still covered by the Warranty. He didnt give us
a year, but that might not matter if he got it certified or it was an
extended warranty. The system can be taken off BTW. He said that he
disconnected a wiring harness to it and only the lights were flashing. He
didnt say if the car starts or not, so if it does, you just drive it to
them, and if you get pulled over because they think the car is "stolen" you
explain the situation and show them all of the registration papers and such
and they will let you go. Only problem you might get a ticket because some
people may think yuo are a police car.
To the owner. Pull the fuses for all of the lights, and that should solve that, and then drivethe car to the dealer, and tell them what happened and exactly what you did.
However a better choice is just to hook it all back up, and call them because if you tell them you were tampering with the amarm, they might say that you ust broke it and they cant cover it since it wasnt properly dealt with.
He did give us the year...1998. I'm guessing it's still under warranty. He
did say that the car did not start. Read his first post.
It is probably possible to remove the alarm, but it can't be easy. If it'd be easy, every car theft would be simple since all you do is disconnect the fuse, or whatever. For this reason, I think it would be simpler to just call the dealer and have them take care of it, especially if it's still under warranty. Tampering with it might cause trouble later down the road.
do you have a remote lock? and what do you mean by no door lock? like you cant lock and unlock the door? the door cant close? Im shure it might just be a simple contact between the door and the alarm's wire.
Wrong answer. The factory installed security system can be armed/disarmed
from either front door. Simply connect the battery, insert the key in the
door lock cylinder and turn it 90 degrees.
Oh yeah, don't waste your time reading ride3k's response. He's our new village idiot.
Thanks for all the advice everyone. cept you ride3k. I pushed it to a family mech (not really any sort of feat the damn thing weighs like 7 pounds) I did take ride3k's advice to heart a little, i put about 3 dozen paintball rounds into it lol.
