How to disable the unlock alarm in a 2001 volkswagen beetle?

Every time that I have my battery attached my alarm will go off 30 seconds after locking my car, whether it's manual or with the remote. My beetle also automatically locks, which means that the alarm will go off. I know there is something wrong with the lock sensor, but I was wondering if there is a way to disable the alarm without have to completely replace the lock module.

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

there is no way that i know of to rest the alarm and remote entry system it most likely needs to be reprogrammed and this can only be done at a dealership

Our remote key will not function properly we are unable to turn off the alarm so every time we want to drive the car the alarm sounds for 30 seconds and everyone around thinks we are stealing our car help


Verify good battery in remote. Then try this...works on some cars. Standing close to car, press both "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons at the same time. Hold for 10 to 15 seconds and horn should chirp and door locks will cycle indicating the system will now recognize the remote. If not, check owners manual if you have it. Otherwise, a trip to a VW dealer is in your future.

Open the trunk with the key, it will disable the alarm. You probably need a new door lock cylinder, which you should look into. They're easy to replace, but take a while to get, as they have to be coded for your key. You can also remove the door lock cylinder by loosening the t20 torx screw near the door handle until the lock cylinder slides out(DO NOT LOOSEN MORE THAN NECESSARY TO GET THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT), then use a flathead screwdriver through the hole to activate the lock.

Sounds like bad door latches. You may also need a drivers door lock cylinder.
You should be able to start the car by opening the trunk first. That should disable the alarm, disconnecting the battery will not help.

Have a 2000 VW Beetle. The alarm won't turn off!


My 2000 Beetle does same thing (although not all the time). Just found an internet post that suggests there is a problem in the door lock sensor. I assume you are using a regular key - not
the keyless entry - like I am. He also said that you can disable the alarm (also disables the
keyless entry - which doesn't bother me) by leaving the front door AND the rear trunk open and
starting the car up. Seems to work so far. I will get the door lock sensor replaced and turn the
alarm system back on (not sure how yet), and let you know if that stops the problem.

Car died and now alarm will not turn off.


manually lock and unlock the driver door with the key. ( i have the same problem) I think its a fuse problem, because if I keep locking and unlocking the car will finally give in and unlock. try opening and closing the door while doing this too.. it seems to work for me.

1999 vw beetle


my beetle is fairly stubburn....for example: i tried cranking it with the alam going off and after five times the alarm cut itself off, then i started it and drove off. but that clearly is no valet over-ride because the second and third time didnt work. second time i unlocked the hatchh back and the assenger door and started the engine and it worked. third time....well...still trying.!!
