Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 98 vw beetle that the power windows quit working with the switch. I replaced the switch, but they still won't work. However the windows will roll up and down with the key from the outside of the door. So is there a relay or something else that I'm missing? And if so where ? thanks
The power for door lock servos and windows is on the same run of cable in wiring harness in door, with two very similar plugs that connect to the window switch and to the door switch. My guess is ou have probably connected the power window plug to the door and vice versa. You will notice one plug has 4 pins and the other has 5 (from memory) - make sure you match these up.

you sound like you have a bad connection to the new switch. Clean the contact on the wire connection to the switch. Also get a jumper wire to see if you can jump it out with the new switch pulled off???
