It sounds like your alternator is not charging. You may want to have it tested and replace/rebuild it if necessary. Many times the problem is that the brushes are worn in the alternator and it stops charging correctly. The brushes are usually attached to the voltage regulator and are replaceable if you have the parts and skill. You can also replace the voltage regulator/brush assembly as a unit.

Many parts stores will test your alternator for free.

One difference here. One the NON-CONVERTABLE new Beetle, the hazard button is the flasher... on the convertable, there is a separate sealed relay box under the dash to keep from having the switch short out of you leave the top up.

My 2001 VW Beetle diesel will not start sometimes. The glow plug light will not even come on. If it does come on, it starts fine. If the glow plug light does not come on, it will not start. We changed...

Check for battery to motor ground and battery to body ground for corrosion under mounting bolts. also check motor to body ground strap for corossion and overall condition. Bad ground can cause all sorts of problems. Also check all electrical connectors to glow plugs for corossion.

While driving 2003 vw new beetle the engine cut out for a few seconds described as a surge or **** just as the blue warm up light goes out. No warning lights of impending danger. Vehicle has 54,000 miles.

it could be just contaminated fuel. keep an eye on it and if it happens again. let me know. also keep notes(i.e. time of day, cold/hot, driving/starting, just fueled, raining). all these can play important roles while diagnosing.

2001 VW Beetle Will not start

Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
