If I leave my door open too long, the doors will lock automatically and the alarm will go off. I have a 2000 Beetle. Is this normal?
Wow, sounds like a fun project! Take apart the whole door to replace a little switch. Gotta love "new" cars. I wish I could just remove the alarm all togetherFailed microswitch in the door. Read up on these threads for cheap fixes:
