Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
I have been having a lot of problems with my Beetle for just over 2 years now.
1) The car sporadically makes the indicator noise as if I have activated my turn signal, though I have not. When this noise does start, it is sporadic and unpredictable and this has never been fixed at the various mechanics I have taken it to.
2) The primary problem that began sometime after the blinker noise was that the battery drains rapidly. I've gone to four different mechanics in four years and no one can figure out what's going wrong with the car. I've had three new batteries put in, some kind of fuse and a new alternator. Initially, after each "fix", the car is okay, but if I don't drive it every day it has no power. As of a week ago, it won't even hold a charge for 12 hours. I would appreciate any kind of help!
Your clicking noise is from a bad turn signal switch get that replaced and it will fix the problem. as for the battery drain issue you need to take it to a dealer or a very good mechanic that has dealt with VW before and have them do a parasitic draw test. that means their is a source that is pulling amperage from your battery even though the key is off.
