wasssssup........ ok i have a 00jetta with the factory alarm/security system (whatever u wanna call it)...... i purchased the car used from local dealer, when i purchased the car the dealer (chevy dealer not vw) told me that the only key they had for the car was the valet key.........right now i am having this problem when i sometimes turn the key to disable the alarm and unlock my doors.... my drivers door will unlock, but not others....and also the red LED for the alarm continues to flash.......i can open drivers door without horn sounding, then when passengers door or any other door is open alarm/horn sounds............and sometimes i cant get it to stop until it finishes sounding then, i can shut my doors and drive off..........but when i stop the car , reopen the doors alarm sounds...............i'm taking the dam thing back to dealer.......any suggestions??

your problem is actually not a problem. that's what the valet key was ment for. the only way to stop that from happening is to get a real key made. they did it that way so you could ya know, leave your car with the valet but know that you can still leave things protected (i.e. valet key cannot unlock the glove compartment).
