Can not turn off alarm. Have to disconnect the battery.
Reconnect battery, alarm is quiet until door opens. Disconnect battery to shut it up.

Is there a simple way to disconnect the system, disconnect a wire? Disconnect the horn?
Pull a fuse? Dynamite?

Any help appreciated.

  • Remove the headlight switch, which is located on the left side of the steering wheel. Depending on the model Jetta you own, you will either have to remove the switch by turning it clockwise and pulling it out, or by using a screwdriver to remove the single screw that holds it into place.
  • Use your screwdriver to remove the two or three screws that hold the fuse box pull down cover into place.
  • Use your screwdriver to remove the two or three screws that hold the lower knee bolster cover, then unclip the fuse block and lower it out of its place.
  • Use the socket wrench to remove the single bolt that is holding the alarm module onto its bracket, then use your hand to pull the module towards you. This will give you access to the alarm's plugs and wires.
  • Grab the six-pin connector, which is located on the right, and locate the red and orange and black-striped wires. They should be directly above one another, on the right side of the six-pin connector.
  • Pull both the red, and the orange and black-striped wires from the connector, then jump them by using the 10 gauge wire. Twist the 10 gauge wire onto each end of the two wires securely.
  • Use the electrical tape to cover the connection, making it secure. Then replace the module, fuse panel covers, and headlight switch. Your Jetta's alarm will now be disabled, allowing your starter to be engaged no matter what state the alarm is in.
