99 Vw Beetle Won't Stay Cranked

Battery went dead at school. Got a jump from secutiry officer. Drove car approx. 1/4 mile, died again. Charged battery for 4 hours. Will crank, but won't stay cranked. WHat's wrong? Where is the code to reset the engine so it will run? Is the dealer the only one who can recode it?

It is most likely the alternator. You will need to check it and see if it needs replaced. All you need to do is hook up an electrical mulimeter while the car is running. Black wire to negative, red to positive and see how many volts you get. You should get between 13 and 15. Any lower and you need to check the alternator.

Sounds more like the Alternator or Voltage regulator is not charging the battery correctly. Have the Alternator checked. If you remove it and take it to Auto Zone or Advance Auto they should be able to test it for you.

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.
