My alarm activates itself when I try to start the car.
I unlock doors with key, alarm shuts off (red light on drivers door stops blinking)
Put key in ignition and red light on driver's door resumes blinking. Car does not start and if I open the door the alarm starts going off (BEEP BEEP BEEP).
I'm thinking of disabling the alarm. The DIY I found seems pretty straightforward. However, In the DIY the alarm control module is silver and has two plugs. On my car the silver box has one plug and immediately next to it is a black box that has two plugs. One of the plugs on the black box has two red wires, one with black stripe, looks to be about 10g wire (my gut says these are the wires I'm looking for) I want to make sure I jump the correct wires and NOT short/burn down my car.
None of the wires on the silver box look thick enough to be 10g, so I think the wires on the black box are the ones I want. I just want someone to confirm this for me.
The car I am working on is a 96 Jetta 2.0 with 5 speed transmission
