Question about 2004 Volkswagen Beetle
I took my 2004 VW Beetle Convertible in to have the headlights changed and an oil change. They told me one of the headlights burned out and I needed to replace the whole thing, the other just a bulb. Then they called and said I had a check engine light on and it was the thermostat sensor (this was not on prior to taking it to them). I picked up my car after telling them, no don't fix it if it isn't under warranty, to find they worked on a recall for the airbag, and did not do the oil change. I picked up my car and found the driver’s side window no longer goes down and up automatically when I open the door; I called them, and took it back. They in turn told me this was the window sensor and they did not do it. I told them it worked fine when I drove into their service area. They said coincidence; they were no where in the area when they worked on my car. So, now I have a check engine light on and my window doesn't work properly both that were not a problem before. So, what do I do to fix these things without taking it back to them?
As far as the window goes... here is the full reset procedure. I beleve in your case you only need to do part #2
GLASS RESET PROCEDURE: If window is hindered whilst closing, it will open again immediately. Attention: does not work when using car key to open/close window. After window has opened, lift and hold appropriate switch within 10 seconds. If window is still hindered it will stop closing. After window has stopped, lift switch again within 5 seconds in order to close window. It will now close without roll-back function.
2. To reinstall this function: Lock vehicle from outside via driver’s door. When doing this, please ensure that all windows are completely closed. Unlock vehicle and then lock it again via driver’s door. Hold key in locking position for at least 1 second.
hope this help.
p.s. find a new dealership!!!
