Hi again....not sure how to interpret the lack of responses, but....
-I am assuming that you got it started
-perhaps it was just playing hard to get

-if it happens again...clearly leaving it alone for a few minutes seems to work for this older beetle

hope that 'fix-ya'

Sir if the starter is not even turning im sorry to inform your engine might be broken. Lack of oil could be the reason. I d reccomend to send to a mechanic shop inmediately.

Hi fellow mechanics, Today I woke-up and my 98

this sounds like you have a battery that is not 100% charged. charge battery or replace it with a new one and this should solve your problem. ( check the age of the battery -- most car batteries are only good for 5 years max ). with a bad battery you should be able to jump start the car ( but sometimes the battery is so dead that it actually draws down the jumper battery to the point where it will not start the car ). as soon as you get a new battery - double check the alternator output to make sure that it is charging the battery.
you can pop the battery out and have it charged and tested by a local battery / auto part shop and they can tell you if in fact the battery is bad.
