Question about 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI

1 Answer

Beetle engine just turned off while driving

My car is a 2003 VW Beetle.
I stopped at a light the engine just went off. I put the car in park, turned the ignition off. I started the car again it seemed fine. I drove about a mile and as I was driving the engine went off again. I coasted to the shoulder, came to a complete stop, placed the car in park and turned the ignition off. I waited about 10 seconds and then turn the ignition and the car started just fine again. Where should i start looking for the problem. the battery light came on in the dash board. that came on as soon as the engine went off. Please help me. I don't know where to start. Comment posted on Dec 29, 2008 No other dash lights have come on before this.
