Clock/Mileage gage stay on even when car is off.. Is this Normal?

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.

Ihave a 2000 vw beetle are both cooling fans supposed to stay on when the airconditioner is running


it is quiet normal for the fans to work when the A/C is on, in some vehicles they only run at half speed when the A/C is working, if they run all the time when the A/C is not on you may have a problem.....hope this helps.....cheers.

What weight oil goes into my 2000 v w beetle turbo


You can purchase Mobil 1 European formula only as it meets the VW/Audi specification of 503.000, 0-30 weight for engines of 180 BHP or less. Some people have said that some of the Amsoil will meet this specification. Whatever sythenic oil you purchase, make sure that on the label it states meets VW/Audi specification 503.000 or 503.001 on the label. If it does, then you can buy it.

VW New Beetle Turbo GLX stalls, transmission problems.


I have a 2000 Volkswagen beetle turbo as well, and experienced this same problem. It seemed to be especially worse in bad weather. We have taken it various places but no one could seem to fix it since it was sporatic. Finally, we had some hoses replaced, and havent had any problems with it for about a month now.

If you are sure you have a key off battery drain, what you need to do is connect an ammeter to the negative side of the battery(disconnect the negative battery cable and connect one side of the ammeter to the battery terminal and one side to the and one side to the battery cable) note the reading and start pulling fuses one at a time making sure to put them back in their proper slot when the reading an the ammeter goes down to normal the short will be on the circuit of the fuse you have pulled if any part of these instructions is too difficult have the problem checked by a dealer

I just purchased a 2000 VW Beetle 1.8 Turbo but, there was no Owner's Manual included with the car. A light has come on my dashboard and i don't know what it's for. It's a blue light in the shape of a...


If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.

2001 VW Beetle Will not start


Hi.
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
