CABRIO ALARM PROBLEMS ON VW CABRIO

1998 Volkswagen Cabriolet

Electrical problem
1998 Volkswagen Cabrio 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles

My car was working well until it started raining. Yesterday the rain started and the car alarm went off. The doors do not lock because the central locking system is disabled and has been for quite some time. I disarmed the alarm and was able to start the car. Today I went out to the car and the alarm went off. I disabled it from the trunk but as soon as I got back to the door the alarm was already primed and went off again. I cannot start the car today. The front and rear lights are working as are the interior lights and radio - any thoughts?

I am having a simular problem. My alarm went off tonight and I dont have the manual to figure out how to reset it. I dont have the hand held keyless entry anymore. You said something about the trunk? I could not find anything there. Is there a reset there?

All my electronics work, but it will not turn over.

I was able to turn the key in the trunk to 'disarm' the alarm. You just use the key to unlock the trunk. It seems as though my problems are related to something electronic getting wet. Today there was no rain and the car worked reliably all day. Good luck!
