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.
