Question about Cars & Trucks

Vw problems 2007 New Beetle Convertible with 40,000 miles. Car would not stay started after doing 2 errands. Let sit a minute and it started, then the instrument panel lit up with 5-6 instrument code lights. Then, the Exhaust System fault light stayed on. Once I got it home, I thought it was an issue with me key, so I used my spare key to start it and the exhaust system fault light is still on. Has anyone heard of this before ?

SOURCE: 2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue

Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.

I have a 2003 VW Beetle Convertible with a 6 speed auto transmission it start to shift hard when the car warms up. do i need a new trannsmisson or is it just a sensor?


I can almost assure you that you need to replace the transmission valve body. It's a $2000 + job by your local mechanic or 4000 from dealer. This is a well known problem with these cars. Ive replaced 2 of them on two different cars in the past year.

Check the oil level to make sure you have sufficient oil in the crankcase, and that it's not burnt. Also check the level of the antifreeze/coolant in the cooling system. Low levels can cause the car to shut down. Alway look at the cheaper easy to solve problems, then move to the more complicated.

2003 beetle convertible top detached from window


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.
