today i locked the keys in the car. after trying to open the door i had to call a locksmith. in 2 minutes the guy used a air bag to pry the door open and unlocked it with a long fiberglass rod. great work so i thought. after i got under way the open door alarm came on and it stayed on even after i checked and made sure all doors trunk and hood were closed. this is causing the cab lights to stay on all the time and its draining the battery.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta Question: how do get the open door alarm not to come on

Have you tried making sure all doors are locked and opening and closing the doors using the remote control then try to start the car using the ignition key. Perhaps look on the internet on VW specific websites and see if any one has posted a reset procedure for the alarm.
