SOURCE: 2001 vw beetle brake lights not working

Actually, the switch you are referring to will cut the brake lights off when depressed, it is when extended that it will make contact, and light up the brakes. However, if it does nothing at all no matter what it's position, check the wires leading to the switch, and check the switch itself. If it lights up the brakes when you pull the switch off the rail, then you just need to readjust it, so that when you push the pedal, the stem is high enough to ride down with the pedal bar.

If the switch won't pass any current, simply replace your switch, and make sure that when you put the new one in, to adjust it's height above the pedal rail.

SOURCE: need vacuum diagram for 1974 vw beetle with 34 pic carb

Depending on your carb, distributor and transmission, you have from zero to two vacuum hoses. If you have an Autostick transmission, there's a vacuum hose running from a port in the intake manifold to the control valve on the left side wall of the engine bay. (Hint: if you've got a car that came with Autostick and that someone's converted to manual transmission, the bracket for the control valve is the perfect place for your coil.) Most people don't have this transmission even if their car came with it--it's only a three-speed and it's hard to find parts for it, so most of those cars have been converted to manual transmission. The other hose you might have is for your distributor. The port is on the left side of the carb, and a hose runs between it and the metal vacuum advance can on the side of the distributor. If you have a 009 distributor or an aftermarket distributor like an MSD you don't have the vacuum advance can; if you have an aftermarket carb like a Weber you don't have the port. Therefore...you probably don't have any vacuum lines on your engine.

if only one vacuum line then? the vacuum line goes from the vacuum advance on the side of the dizzy, to the carburettor, just around the throttle linkage if i recall. hope this helps.

SOURCE: ignition switch for a 74 vw super beetle

The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

1989 VW beatle. engine running will not go into


I'm going to assume it is an automatic transmission,

Check the brake switch for malfunction,

NOT the brake......the brake light switch,

The cruise control,brake light and shift lever over ride all connected to rhe same circuit.

Check all fuse first,bulbs and move onto checking the brake switch,
