Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
I purchased a 2000 VW Beetle 1.8 Turbo about a month and a half ago. My question is about the mileage gage and time clock. Both miles gage and clock stay on after i have turned off my car and removed the key. I have stayed in the car for ten minutes after everything has been turned off and these still stay on even in the morning when i get in my car. their on 24/7 it would appear. Is this a normal occurance for this model? My battery died about two weeks ago and i replaced it(it looked like it was the original battery and was time to change it anyways.) i haven't had a problem with the battery since... is this a normal thing for the clock and mileage gage to stay on?
I have a Jetta 2005 and I just noticed that after this:
when my battery died after 7 hours playing my stereo, then I charged it for 30 minutes and my car could start on again. After that incident thet remote key started failing when I push the open button twice to open all doors. They remain closed, only passenger door open. Then I disconnected battery over 15 min to reset computer, and the clock and mileage gage remain on all time after that. Never remain on before it was disconnected and conneted again.
