You can reset the alarm on your Volkswagen Golf with or without your remote keyless entry, or key fob. The key fob sets and resets the alarm system, but you can use the key itself to reset the alarm. The Golf's switchblade key has a chip programmed particular to each Golf, so it will pass the security system and reset the alarm.

Skill level:


    Switchblade Key

  1. 1

    Find the unlock button on your key remote. It shows a picture of a key in the unlocked position and is located at the end of the fob away from the key.

  2. 2

    Point the remote at your car and press the unlock button firmly and quickly. This should reset the alarm.

  3. 3

    For an alternate method to reset the alarm, press the button that releases your key. Put it in the door and turn to unlock it.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also use the key in the door to set your alarm.
  • If you are experiencing problems with your alarm system going off at random, this signifies an electrical or security issue. Take your car to a shop.
