  4. Arming alarm causes immediate trigger (after Florence)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I've had my share of alarm issues, and finally fixed them. Haven't seen any problems in years. Anyway, Florence just blew through here, and sure enough, I've got alarm problems. First time driving the car today, tried to arm alarm, and off it goes. No way to arm without it triggering -...
  5. 2000 VW Passat V6 5 spd. - Is it possible to disable the audible alarm using VagCom

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My haunted Passat , at 225,580 miles, it has been a great car. However , for no apparent reason (that I can see), the car will lock itself, roll up the windows and sunroof. When I open up the now locked car, the alarm goes off and it's driving me nuts. I then have to pop the hood, disconnect my...
  6. 2000 VW Car Alarm No Longer Honking.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my car alarm no longer making any noise. I've read everywhere online that it may be the doors/hood/trunk if they're not closed properly. I've checked all doors, hood, hood latch, trunk, and trunk latch. All close properly with no problems. I even tried...

  8. Rear door won't open on first pull after alarm deactivated, but eventually opens

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have this weird problem with my rear (passenger's side) door. Immediately after the alarm is disabled, it won't open until what always seems like the 3rd attempt. This happens both with the external handle, and interior handle. It's bizarre. Once it opens, I can continue to open and close...
  9. Alarm Randomly Went Off

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I searched the forum but I am not sure I have the same issues I have read or not. My car is in the garage and my alarm just went off. I thought maybe the cats had gotten my keys and pressed the alarm by accident but they weren't moved. I went out to my car and unlocked it and opened and shut...
  10. Empty passenger seat alarm going off

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    I have a 2012 Passat TDI that I bought in April. Love the car. One thing that is driving me nuts is if I leave my cell phone on the seat the seatbelt alarm goes off as if someone were sitting in the seat. Is there a way to turn this off or at least adjust the sensitivity?

  20. Why un-hook the Alarm??

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    If you own a SEL model *and* have this switch body then supposedly you are primed and ready to activate the system, simply by installing a new hood switch assembly...?? (thanks to "myturbodiesel.com") http://www.myturbodiesel.com/attachments/passat-hood-switch-jpg.3160/ It is my understanding...
