AUTOMATIC 2000 VW BEETLE - SPEEDO NOT WORKING!!!!

Hi
I have a 2000 VW Beetle Automatic, and the speedometer has stopped working. I have replaced the speedometer, however, this has not resolved the problem.

Do you have any ideas, could this be a simple fix or would the whole auto gearbox need to come out.

Many thanks Jeanette

Check the vehicle spped sensor on the transmission, if that does work, it may be the gear on the differential that has come apart. that gear is plastic and does break. if this is the case, there is a way to remove the differential and replace the plastic gear, not the transmission.

NOT REALLY FOR SURE BUT I THINK IT HAS A SPEED SENSOR EITHER ON THE WHEEL OR LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION I WOULD CHECK THOSE AREAS.

Hi there, I have a VW Golf GTI 2000 model.. and...


You'll probaly need a new speedo head. Just remember to record your original mileage to the new speedo you'll need to hook up a VAG 1552 scan tool and set it up. NOTE: It has to be below 100mi or else it will permanently lock up and unable to record your original mileage.

'99 Beetle cruise control surge and speedometer has slight flutter.Occasionally speedometer drops to zero mph and cruise will then stop working. The "surge" is so bad that you can not drive with cruise on....


I would take a blind guess and sat the speedo sensor has an issue. 99' beetle should have an 01M auto, and the speed sensor is also the dipstick for the final differental drive. search around this area of the trans for the cable and snoop around. loose at the trans ? bad connection somewhere??

Speedo,tacho,fuel guage not working on my 2000 vw beetle any ideas,checked all fuses,could it be a relay?


Not likely that a relay would cause this.

Modern instrument clusters are packed full of capacitors and numerous other types of electrical components. A faulty soldered connection can create havoc with the entire cluster.

There are numerous cluster repair facilities across the country. Google "speedometer repairs." Scan down the sites and see if problems with your model car are mentioned.

Hi i bought a 2000 beetle and i wonder if anyone could tell me what size alloys come as standard on it. Its been fitted with 18 inch alloys and i think this is causing my speedometer to be incorrect.


The proper size is 16 this is the genuine size of the wheels the bigger wheels will alter the speedo but if you go to a car spares shop you will be able to buy a speedo drive that compensates for the different size wheels so this option would be cheaper than replacing all the wheels so i would get this looked at first.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
