Hi, same problem here. I've take it to VW twice for this issue, just before the warranty expired, then just after it expired it happened again. Taking it in on friday, its very frustrating, i've had the hydraulic pump replaced and several micro-switches.

Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.

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.

Lubricate all parts on the top that pivot and check the fuse for a blown one. If the fuses are good then it may be a relay not sending power to the electric motor. Hope this helps. Good luck

My problem has been solved. I contacted the VW Customer Service and spoke with an advocate. The advocate and my dealership reached a conclusion and VW has decided to replace the items to alleviate my problem at their cost. Sometimes, dreams come true. Good luck to all of you who have similar problems with your VW Beetle convertible. It took quite a lot of patience and determination on my part, but the VW advocate was sympathetic to my plight since I'd never taken the vehicle anywhere else but the dealership for all repairs. The repairs have not been completed yet, so I cannot say whether or not the dilemma is, indeed, solved.

Beetle servo motor stuck


All operations are handled by the convertible top control module. Assuming everything else works except the roof lock(s), the control module may not be getting the right inputs for locking. The convertible top operation switch could be defective or the top open/closed position switches could be defective or the linkage flap position sensors could be defective and finally, there could be a mechanical problem

My soft top roof will not close, just changed the battery and opened thew roof now it will not close


You need to have the dealer reset the programming. NEVER change a battery in this model car without a backup power source connected to avoid these types of problems in VW's

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 have a 2004 convertable beetle and I have had nothing but problems. When I try to put the top down it won't lock into place. When I get frustrated with it I just want to put the top back up and it...


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.

Driver side window does not want to roll down the 1/2 inch when opening and closing the door...then the door doesn't close, gets hung up on the convertible top....any cheap fix? can't afford dealer work...


This works on many different cars,porsche,bentley,bmw etc.I Hope it works on yours.Open window enter car,make sure all doors are firmly shut.Close and open window two or three times.Should reprogram.

The electric wings will not drop when letting the top down.


I have the same problem with my car. I just bought a 2004 VW Beetle and have never owned a convetible before. So when I saw the wings I asked if this was normal. The mechanic at the dealer said that on the 04 those wings do not retract when the top is down, only when the top is closed. Now my car will beep when I start driving because the top is not down all the way, also the indicator light shows a blinking car in the temp display letting me know the top in not down all the way. I read a solution from someone else and it said to keep keep the button to open the top pressed or pulled.......whichever is the way to open it...until the motor stops, but that did not work. So I decided to do a little research online and saw pictures of 2004 convertible VW beetles with the top down....low and behold the wings were retracted when the top was down. So the mechanic at the dealer lied. If these people do not know what their cars do and don't do, they should not be working there. They are compltley neglagant and incompitent. If anyone has an ansewr for me, it would be appreciated.
