    Just been woken up by a neighbour to say that my indicators are flashing on the car

    This is the alarm but the siren is buggerd

    Now the car won't unlock with the key fob when you press it the hazard warning light will light up but the car won't unlock at all I have tried to sync the fob with the car but still not working

    Any ideas?

    That is the plan when I get home from work but the problem is that I only have the shareware of vagcom so I'm limited to What I can do and I'm not paying 100+ for a scan! I would rather save for it full version

    Just after some pointers

    well ive had a look with the shareware version i have and this lot came up

    1 Fault Found:
    01463 - Alarm triggered by Sensor for anti-theft alarm System
    43-00 - Closed

    -------------------------------------






    5 Faults Found:
    01134 - Alarm Horn (H12)
    49-00 - No Communications
    01370 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    35-00 - Please Register/Activate
    01369 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    35-00 - Please Register/Activate
    01371 - Alarm triggered by Door Contact Switch; Driver's Side
    35-00 - -
    00955 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    35-00 - Please Register/Activate


    i know about this one
    01134 - Alarm Horn (H12)
    49-00 - No Communications
    its the sounder horn its never worked and has been disconnected for some time now

    any help with the rest would be good

    i can also see that my buttons on the key fob are working but not actually unlocking the door!

    i have recently had some radio issues too where it crackles and goes off and have narrored that to wiring in the drivers door somewhere although the wiring that runs from the pillar to the door is fine and has had a repair in the past

    the rosstech wiki shows those faults are to do with bonnet catch, drivers door catch and ultrasonic sensors.
    I would cear the faults and see what comes back.

    cleared them and the only one that come back is 00955 - Key 1: Adaptation Limit Surpassed


    it comes back straight away without touching anything i only have one key fob too so cant try another

    but if i lock the car and wait for the alarm to set and hazard light to go out when i press unlock the hazard light comes on! the battery is pretty new two but will try another but im rather lost as i was out all day in it with no trouble yesterday!

    Do you think this could be down to a wiring problem in the drivers door? I have just been out to the car and tried all the electrics on the drivers door and the window would not work

    a wobble of the wiring and it started to work again

    just seems a bit strange to me

    bit of an update on this

    the wiring was shot between the door and the door pillar i have made all the connections good so no crackle on the radio now it was loosing power to the door too so im thinking maybe it shorted out or something setting the alarm off???

    although i still have no remote central locking the fob just wont seem to sync although when the car is locked and you press the fob the hazard warning light on the dash will illuminate!! but there is nothing on the doors

    i also pulled the passenger seat out and checked for water and its bone dry opened up the box for the convenience module and it was dry and no signs of ever having a leak in that area although the box has been open before

    i need a full vagcom really as im stuck without it and im not paying main stealer prices!!
