My alarm will not deactivate when I unlock my door. So opening the door sets off the alarm and the car wonít start because itís in security lock out. It is the factory alarm. Is it possible to completely disable the alarm system for good? My small time mechanic was skeptical about doing this with a VW because the european alarms are stubborn and problematic when it comes to circumvention. They recommend the dealership, but Iím curious if you really can just simply unplug the alarm system and if anyone has done this? Would like to avoid the dealership. If this is impossible, would just like to be as informed as possible.
I have a 1996 Jetta. original owner. Never had a wireless lock/alarm option. Always old fashioned key. Has a history of electrical issues.
