You realise that it will void your insurance as well?

Or you could just fix the faulty lock module or faulty rear hatch switch you’ve got.

Subject gets covered here almost every day.

Immobiliser and alarm are completely different things. Disabling your immo will void insurance as it’s law in the UK that all cars manufactured after 1995 have an immobiliser.

Disconnecting the battery will not turn the alarm off as it has it’s own battery. You’ve most likely just got a faulty door module. Find out what’s causing the alarm to go off and fix it.

i have just done some research and it says taking relays s111 and s144 can disable the alarm/horn. i have taken out the panel underneath the steering wheel and see some relays but dont see the ones i mentioned. do i just pull these things out once i found them

yeah alan thats basically what im after. just to shut the damm thing up temporarily as im waiting for an ignition lock barrel from germany to be fitted by vw dealer next week. then ill just get them to have a look at it. i dont need to drive until i take it to the dealer.

these modern cars do my nuts in . lol. 13 years without any major problems. and than in a space of a few weeks its falling apart

111 and 144 is on top of the fuse box. on their own.

A quick fault scan will tell you which lock is dodgy. The Hatch = the big door thing on the back of the car (assuming it’s a golf). When the rear washer goes faulty it drips water on the lock mech and switch in the latch. A tell tale sign is a corroded handle on the hatch.

Out of interest. Why are you having the ignition switch replaced? And do you mean the ignition switch in the steering column or the lock barrel on the door?

are you talking about the normal fuse box on the side of the drivers side dash board regarding 111 and 144?

or is it underneath the steering wheel.

the ignition lock barrel pin broke. so took it to vw and they said i need only part of it. then after going there to get it fixed they decided i need the whole bloody thing which needs to be made in germany to fit my existing key. £300 odd quid

the mechanic i used to get the car serviced decided to be a lazy [email protected] and cut off part of the cover that redirects the water into the drain hole above the pollen filter so i sorted that out myself and took all of 2 minutes to fit properly. cause of him the front footwell was totally flooded and the interior was totally mouldy. had to fork out 70 squid to get it valet etc. dont know if the leaking water affected the electrics or not

now in the past 2 days i find out that the rear windscreen wiper doesnt shut off and the drivers door handle is stiff when you pull it out. it kinda stays there. dont know if this is triggering the alarm off. god knows how much this is going to cost

on top of that i think the wheel bearings are going

if its not crappy workmanship that messes the car up its bad luck also

when it rains it pours as the saying goes. lol

oh well 13 years trouble free driving things were bound to go wrong sooner or later
