2003 VW Beetle Alarm

Asked by Jul 02, 2018 at 02:39 AM about the 2003 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently started driving my mom’s older VW beetle since
she got a 2012 model in April, and up until mid May it was
fine. The main issue I have right now is that annoying
alarm. Whenever I go to lock the car, either with the
physical key or the buttons on the fob, the alarm with go
off. It will do this periodically, there’s no telling when it
decides to lock or not. It stops when I unlock the car
fortunalty, though I’ve had to keep it in our garage lately in
fear of someone stealing the car out on the street. My
mom said that she dropped the key in water one time
which is why it might go off, but my dad had another fob
that he tried and that too set off the alarm. We aren’t sure
as to why it does this but it’s adding on to more issues
with this old model. Hopefully someone might have an
idea!
