fucking alarm is on a distinguished road
Default Car is stuck in Anti Theft mode. How to bring it out?

To make a long story short. My car has Kill Switch that I cant not figure out for life of me how it operates. I had the car for 2 years and have been dealing with this for awhile but have worked around it by leaving a door unlocked. First it was the passenger side door then later it became the trunk. I accidently locked every thing ealier and that put the car in armed mode and upon unlocking the door the alarm went off and the car wont turn on.

Details about my car:

- Both the doors are broken. You can only unlock the driver side door with key but cant lock it. Passenger side door cannot be locked or unlocked

- My key does not disarm the car

- I used to do the key trick which was locking a unlocking the driver side door over and over again till it worked. does not work anymore

- My car has 2 alarms one that that the key fob thing controls that I dont have anymore and the the other one that auto arms itself after all doors are locked..I don't know which one is the real one but when I locked all doors the light labeled security above the battery light comes on solid for a few seconds then starts to blink. I assuming that's the built in alarm and not the 3rd party? The other alarm is a black box looking thing with a stylized A on the front. When I had the key fob pressing lock button would turn the circle light on near steering wheel to show it was active. This does not seem to be connected to the security one as awhile ago I unhooked all wires from box the key fob alarm stopped working but the security light one stayed flashing.

What is the procedure for bringing this car out of Anti theft lock down? How long does a car stay in anti theft mode before bringing itself out?

You need to be more specific about your car. What year is it? I see you've posted in both the MKII and MKIII sections, which is it?

In the MKIII FAQ section there's a thread on how to remove the MKIII's security system.

The factory alarm systems use switches which are mounted to the back of the three exterior lock cylinders. They wear out over time and eventually cause erratic arming/disarming when locking and unlocking with the key. Typically the driver's side switch dies first but unlocking with either the passenger door or hatch will disarm the alarm.
If something breaks or you need to contact a member of the administration please post HERE. Unless it's a private or administration matter please post it on the forum. It benefits no one else if car related questions aren't posted for future users and takes away from the time I'm able to spend helping on the rest of the forum.

If you're so inclined I'm always more than happy to accept tips via PayPal.

Default And just to follow up..

the alarm will not disarm automatically. It needs to be manually disarmed through a working key switch. Since both doors are suspect, try the hatch. However, the hatch will only momentarily disarm the alarm on my '88 Mk III, and will reactivate once the hatch is closed again. I was fortunate enough to be able to fix my driver's side switch by taking it apart and bending the wiper arm slightly to restore a good connection. I did that last Fall, and have not had a problem out of it since.

If you choose to try this, the best way is to remove the door latch with the key cylinder attached. The wire harness can be disconnected inside the door frame, as well as the connecting rods to the key cylinder and the door handle.
