Customer Question

I have a VW VR6 1997. The car has not run for sometime and I have recharged the battery and reconnected but I cannot get the alarm to turn off and consequently the car to start - any suggestions?

You may have a bad door latch switch on the drivers side door. To disarm the alarm the car needs to see a door unlocked with the key. Try to unlock the car from passenger side door or even the trunk. See if that gets the alarm to disarm. Chris.....
