I disable the alarm system and have the car..wont turn..neg

Customer Question

Can I disable the alarm system and have the car still turn on? If so how? I'm not a theif, the door locking mechanism broke (key won't turn inside it) and now the alarm blares forever on end until i remove the neg. battery cable. The air pressure lock and unlock system doesn't work either.

What do I do from here??? I would really just like to get the car to turn on. But how do I go about fixing the locking mechanism as well?

Thanks so much

VWDoc :

Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.

VWDoc :

this can be done, but it will take some decent mechanical ability and electrical knowledge

VWDoc :

I can give a procedure if you're going to tackle this yourself

Customer:

Hey, So i have heard from my cousin that there is a mechanism in the back of the lock that triggers the "lock unlock system" and also triggers the alarm system. I need to manipulate that thing to get it to work? can you go more in detail?

Customer:

or is that pretty much it?

VWDoc :

I don't think the dealers sell the individual key tumbler parts any longer, but if so, all you would need to do is remove the handle assembly

VWDoc :

in order to rebuild the tumbler...this is a somewhat tricky little process

VWDoc :

but with the scarce parts availability, I'd like to post up the alarm bypass information for you if necessary

Customer:

alarm bypass would be nice

VWDoc :

Ok, first step is removing the headlamp switch and small triangular panel beside it

VWDoc :

then remove the left air vent

VWDoc :

once these are removed, here is the rest of the procedure

VWDoc :

Customer:

how do i remove the headlamp switch?

Customer:

i don't see small triangular panel

VWDoc :

headlamp switch, push knob inward, turn slightly clockwise, which releases the switch

VWDoc :

ok, maybe not triangular, but the little panel to the left of the headlamp switch. It just pops out

VWDoc :

then pull the air vent, and the alarm ecu and the rest of the procedure is detailed in the link I posted

VWDoc :

please let me know if you need further information regarding this procedure. If you're uncomfortable with the process at all, it might be best to have an experienced automotive electrical shop do the modification

Hey, I would really just like to bypass the alarm system but jumping two wires that connect to the alarm box (behind headlamp switch) I just don't know which to wires to jump. The picture in the link is differen't than what I have. I don't see any large gauge wires leading to my alarm box..


Expert:  Hipo64 replied 2 years ago.

On this vehicle I do not think you can by- pass it. it is too complicated. You need proper scan tool. Ross-Tech scanner is the best. scan the car and just fix if it is a wire or a switch issue. i can help you with wiring.
