The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.

2006 vw new beetle tdi wont start or even try to crank. gage lights are on.


1. Could be faulty key/flat key battery not disabling the security system
Solution - Try your spare key and see if that works

2. Could be low battery - check battery voltage (Lights are LED and will run on super low voltages)

3. Ignition switch failures are super common on VW's. But you need to check the other 2 first.

Vw super beetle won't start after sitting for a few days. After I arc the solenoid, it will work.


If you put battery voltage to the starter solenoid &
it works & the starter works,then the solenoid control
circuit has issues

Fuse,ignition switch,neutral safety switch,clutch sw
& such, depending on what the car has

You could try switching relays but doubt that is an issue

How to replace the front hood VW Ornament on a 2000 New Beetle?


To replace the logo, you can use olive oil to dissolve the glue, then pry it with a screwdriver. Then remove oil w/ soap and water. Then glue the new one w/ super glue.
For the radio, it could be the switch damaged inside. Remove the radio, open it and try to repair it. Or you can replace the whole radio with an used one.

VW Beetle '74


There is a bolt that runs through the starter into the back of the car right in front of the bolwer of the engine. there should only be that one bolt. there is a regular nut on the end of the bolt. take the nut off and the bolt will come right on out.
