99 vw beetle no power to door locks, trunk switch, or gas door not even with remote any suggestions?


the remote switch you are looking for is the fuel door switch that controls all these items trunk,unlock fuel tank door. this unit has to be replaced as a whole unit but check all your fuses first on driver side dash where door touches dash left side open door look for a triangle shape panel pop it open and check (ALL) fuses and especially #17 brown 7.5 amp fuse top right of fuse block.

Trunk / rear lid won't open


You can try this I think the latch is just slightly missaligned.Did you put something in the trunk and push down on the trunk?Try to push down hard on the trunk where the latch is a few times while pressing the remote.If this works and it opens look for marks on the latch indicating rubing,file down,spray with WD 40.Good Luck.

My daughter is buying a 1999 VW Beetle and the AC is not working, the driver side window will not go down and the buttons that opens the trunk and fuel door will not work. Will these be really expensive to...


I have a friend with a 1999 Beetle. The Window was a pain, ended up taking it a shop. 285 at $90 per hour labor, saved an hour because I had taken apart the door.

AC not working at all? Likley the AC Controller (475) or the blower motor regulator (225).

Wiring is also bad in the one your looking at likely. And wiring jobs are a pain.

It will need a new timing belt at 90K for 600-800. DIY will run you 200.

I am fairly competent with car repair and can usually fix most things myself, but I trust others with wiring issues and computer issues.

Skip that car.

Battery needs to be recharged after 3 days of sitting.


There is a slow drian being placed on the battery from one of the VW accessories installed on your bug. I had a very similar problem with my daughter's 1998 Beetle, and the cause was traced back to the hood latch. There's an electrical connection to the hood latch, and when the connection fails it places a slow drain on the battery. Although I'm not fully certain, I beleive the connection is part of the circuit that allows the security system to sense that the doors, hood and trunk are all closed.

I also had a problem with the electrical trunk release actuator, and had to have it replaced once. The remote key fob signals a the electrical actuator to open the trunk lid when the trunk release button on the key fob is pushed. If your trunk release operated normally, you probably do not have an electrical problem by your trunk.

About 60 percent certain you problem is located in your hood release circuit. An experience car nechanic should be able to test this circuit using a hand held electrical meter before it is removed and replaced.

Good luck. My daughter's bug has been acting normally ever since the latch was replaced about 2-3 years ago.

Rear trunk lid wont close


There's an electronic actuator inside the trunk door. The actuator opens the trunk lid when you press either the remote keyless entry or the inside trunk release. If the electronic actuator fails it usually fails in the trunk open mode which will not allow you to close the trunk lid. You can either remove the actuator and take the car to the VW dealer, or buy a new actuator and replace it yourself. It's a tough fix, but not impossible for the mechanically inclined.

Can not figure out how to open my daughters 2006 vw beetle trunk with key. We tryed swiveling the vw badge did not work. Maybe you have to just pop it inside or with key button. Does any one know?


the trunk has no key lock. it can only be opened remote or on the door. in an emergency you can access a manual lock by lowering the center of the back seat and reaching in finding the latch on the underside of the lid

the dealer gave you a ignition key, instead of valet key.
valet key should open the driver door and ignition. nothing else. if the key can't ope the door. try the trunk. if it open the trunk, the it is a wrong key.

Trunk lid on 2004 new beatle vw will not open


They legally HAVE to show you for FREE. That is a safety issue. If you cannot change your tire along the road, it is a safety concern.

My wife's beetle is with her at work now, but if I remember correctly, you lower the back seat and look in the trunk. There should be a handle or cord you pull to release the trunk. Sometimes they are flourescent or glowing.
