Question about 2004 Volkswagen Beetle
Top opened most of the way but wings styed up and now top won't open or close. Is there a fuse number?
SOURCE: Convertible top won't close
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 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.

I have had this problem with my 2005 S4 Cab - sometimes the top will not latch. I have found that this was because the fabric near the rear passenger window was not folding into place over the steel structure. I just back up the top and made sure the fabric unfolded and all was well.
