SOURCE: car won't start and trunk wont pop open

All electrical users are dependent on battery condition; the starter draws 120-200 amps of current and drops even a good battery down a volt or two.
The tolerance of such niceties as the door locks and trunk release are also dependent on the battery and the voltage and current needs for them to perform can vary widely so if the battery is low, many items will cease to operate properly, the starter first and foremost since its needs are way beyond the load represented by the accessories.
If this problem occurs suddenly, the battery may be OK but its post clamps may not be contacting any longer so cleaning the battery posts and the clamps that sit on them is the first thing to try. You can do a basic check to determine if battery or clamps are at fault by having a friend with a meter check across the battery and trying to start the car; if one measures directly on the battery posts and the battery stays at 12.6 volts while trying to start the car, then the battery clamps or the connection at the starter is at fault. Alternately, if the meter probes are placed on the battery clamps and the voltage plummets when the stater is tried, the clamps are definitely at fault.     A special wire brush with a male and female end can be had at any parts store and will do a good job on the two mating parts.
NOTE: When fussing around with your battery, ALWAYS remove the ground (negative) clamp FIRST. If your tool bumps something that is grounded, nothing bad will happen and then the positive one next because if you then get between the positive post and some chassis part, again, nothing will happen because the negative end is already separated from the chassis.

Your rear hatch needs to be adjusted. There are two adjuster. One on right and left. They are black in color and are located just below the hatch lift support. Use the correct size torx/star screw head to adjust.

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.

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

Headlight burnt out


I think you need to go in from the backside to get the bulb out. Open the trunk and look at the backside of the light housing. There should be a small panel with wires sticking out of it that you can turn and pull out to get to the bulb.
