check the wires in the "accordion" style boot in your driver side door. if they are cut and split open your alarm will go off as soon as you turn your key. ask me how i know

repair the broken wires. you could do it hagard by wrapping electrical tape (not recomended) it happened to my car. all i did was strip the wire on both ends soldered them back together and shrink wrapped it to make sure no weather ever touched it. havent had the problem since. pm me if you need any other explination

does your key work? cuz if not, get your key reset. i have the same problem here n there.... i just slam my door a little harder, re-lock it then the alarm goes off... most of the time... hmm i guess i really need to get my key reset haha

Re: my annoying car alarm HELP ME PLEASE! (green JettaIII)

ok i bought new batteries for my key to see if that was the problem

then i took my key apart so i have the key only as one peice and the other key part with the buttons off
this worked
any idea on how i can put my key back together and have it work again?
