Can't reset electronic data

I recently had to replace the battery in my 2000 VW and found that I don't have the manual to reset the hour (it shows military time) nor the temperature gauge which is on the mirror.
Need instructions.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle. My ABS light has been on for a while and last night my brake light and battery light beeped a few times then kept blinking. They finally shut off then about a couple of hours later...

I suspect bad brake pedal position (BPP) switch. Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal position switch placed above pedals on the support.
The best idea is to access the ABS ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com, or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Code) memored. Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC's stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.
Good Luck!

Maybe you magnetic wheel sensors are contaminated or need replacing, that's what sends the data to the ECM. A faulty wiring could also cause sporadic occurrences when a problem acts up.

Electronic immobilizer

most likely cause is the gauge cluster, this will have to be tested and service by your local dealership because the dash cluster and keys have to be coded. I have seen the immobilizer loose it's coding for apearantly no reason. therefore have them recode cluster and see if problem goes away, if it doesn't the gauge cluster will have to be replaced.
