Car alarm for 1997...

Car alarm for 1997 Volkswagen Jetta. I can't start car, or shut it off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Not yet but I don't think battery is the problem. What if I can just disconnect

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Jetta yourself? What have you tried so far?

Pressing all the buttons etc.
