Question about 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

Open Question

Convertible alarm on my 2004 VW Beetle won't stop beeping!

I just brought my used Beetle a few weeks ago. It worked fine until two days ago. Now, when I put the top down, it goes down completely and the rear side panel closes. The problem is when I close the top and lock it, the convertible indicator light where the temperature is won't go off and the rear flaps won't close. Also, the warning alarm for the convertible goes off every time I brake and drive off again. It's driving me crazy! Does anyone know what's wrong?

By using the window master switch method, it reset the computer and the roof went all the way down and locked.

SOURCE: COVErt Top stops before it is all the way down

Try using the reset proceedure of simply turning the car on and use the all windows up and down switch on the driver side door. This is used when the battery is replaced. It might re-set your motor.

I have a 2004 new beetle convertible and when I put the soft top down, the car starts beeping when I excelerate and the roof image where the temperature is supposed to be. I do not think it can go down any...


The top on you car is not completely folded back, once the roof appears to be seated keep holding the open button until you hear another click, If this doesn't work it means the roof parked sensor is not working which unfortunately will mean a trip to the dealer.

I can not stop my car from dinging every time I put on the breaks. The sensor for the top is flashing but i know the top is closed. I need to find someone that knows how to disconnect the wire.
