1. Could be faulty key/flat key battery not disabling the security system
Solution - Try your spare key and see if that works

2. Could be low battery - check battery voltage (Lights are LED and will run on super low voltages)

3. Ignition switch failures are super common on VW's. But you need to check the other 2 first.

SOURCE: 2006 VW tdi black smoke while accelerating

Hi
The only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.
There are lots of possible reasons for the problem and guessing will not really help. If these suggestions turn out to be sound, please give my reply a "Fixya!"rating, If they do not, please hold off rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

SOURCE: headlight installation 2006 Beetle TDI

For the 2006 Beetles
FYI - The bulb for the 2006 is DIFFERENT than the 98-05 beetles
GE - H7 55w
I will start with the tools I used:
(Locking mechanism)
1/4” drive ratchet with a 10” extension and a 5mm socket.
(secondary locking mechanism)
wooden paint stir stick (freebie from your local hardware or paint store) or some long thin stick like a wooden dowel.
Passenger’s Side
This is the easiest of the two as there is not as much in your way of both locking mechanisms. If you shine a light towards the front of the bottom of the light housing inside the engine compartment you will see a small silver pin with a 5mm head that has instructions on how to lock/unlock the primary locking mechanism printed on the black plastic above the pin. Using your 5mm socket and long extension. turn the pin ONLY 1/2 a turn and take care as the pin should turn VERY EASILY. Note that the direction to turn this pin is opposite for the passenger and driver's sides. Now the light housing should be able to move slightly out of it’s seat, but it will not come more than about 1” out of the front of the car. You may have to push on the back of the light housing, as VW puts some sticky sealer around the edge of the light housing in the front. A secondary locking mechanism still holds it in place. If you look a little further back, about 3” - 4”, from the primary locking pin; behind a wrapped wire, a/c line, and the power steering resevoir; you will see a horizontal silver lever, about 3” - 4” in length, pointing towards the front of the car. Using your wooden stick, simply hold this lever down about 1” to 2” and pull out the light housing at the same time. The entire housing should freely and easily come completely out of the front of the car. Take care removing it as there are no wires connected to it and it will fall to the floor if you are not holding on to it. Just open the back of the housing and replace the bulb that is out.
Driver’s Side
This is the most difficult one. The battery location is your enemy. In front of the battery, if you look with a flashlight, you will see the primary locking mechanism. It is the only silver looking pin there with a 5mm head. It looks like the headlamp adjusters on other cars. There are instructions printed on the black plastic above it. You should ONLY turn this 1/2 a turn, and you will NOT need to put much effort into turning it as it should turn very easily. You are not done yet. The entire headlamp assembly should be able to pull out of the fender about 1” now, then it will stop as if something else is holding it. You may have to push on the back of the light housing, as VW puts some sticky sealer around the edge of the light housing in the front. There is a secondary locking mechanism that is just a simple metal lever. If you look on the back of the battery, between the air filter housing and the battery, you should see the end of the small shiny silver lever. Using your wooden stick, simply hold this lever down about 1” to 2” and pull out the light housing at the same time. The entire housing should freely and easily come completely out of the front of the car. Take care removing it as there are no wires connected to it and it will fall to the floor if you are not holding on to it. Just open the back of the housing and replace the bulb that is out.

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

Won't turn over


Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.

2000 1.8t vw passat wont start


There are many possible issues that can cause the problem you are experiencing. A bad starter, a bad ignition switch, relay, wiring circuit for ignition / cranking.

If you are mechanically inclined, I recommend you begin to test all components to narrow your possible problem.

My 03 vw beetle died while i was driving it


Let me know when you said died it died completely even after the repairs you did the engine is not cranking or it does? have you checked whether any relays are overloaded and blown? Probably the main engine relay is blown. Also check if the starter motor is burnt too,or any earth wire is not well connected ( tight on the chassis with the engine block)
