I have a 2002 VW New Beetle. The ABS light has come on and there is a chiming beep and the ABS light flickers. What could be the problem?


ABS - Anti-lock Brake System.
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. ESP system includes the ABS system.

Emergency brake light beeps and flashes at random


it would appear one of 2 things, the plug has come off the brake switch, {under dash} or the wire has been severed and is touching the body hence the light flashing and beeping. Only an inspection can resolve this issue. Good luck

Tack,gas gauge,speedometer not working fuse?


It takes a new instrument cluster. About 800 dollars at vw. They also have to program the computer to accept the new cluster.

Speedo,tacho,fuel guage not working on my 2000 vw beetle any ideas,checked all fuses,could it be a relay?


Not likely that a relay would cause this.

Modern instrument clusters are packed full of capacitors and numerous other types of electrical components. A faulty soldered connection can create havoc with the entire cluster.

There are numerous cluster repair facilities across the country. Google "speedometer repairs." Scan down the sites and see if problems with your model car are mentioned.

Service indicator reset


Good Day,

To reset remove the negative batter terminal, leave it disconnected for a few moments then re-connect. However if the light was tripped due to a mechanical problem it will continue to come on until the cause is repaired.

Hope this helps and good luck
