Golf mk3.5 convertible, battery went flat jump started it…

Customer Question
Golf mk3.5 convertible...

Golf mk3.5 convertible , battery went flat jump started it and opened the passenger door which is now setting the alarm off, any help would be appreciated , cheers ***** *****

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver's side door using the key itself?

Yes , key locks the car , central locking is working on both doors and boot, it has been a bit cold here , would that have a bearing on this issue

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Convertible?

2001

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

Yes , I have tried locking and unlocking the door , made sure all the doors , boot and bonnet are properly closed , think it could be an issue with the passenger door , it seems to be the one that sets the alarm off

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, its really just help on how to reset the alarm I need , the Haynes manual doesn't have much relating to the alarm system
