Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Car starts then cuts out immediately


I think the car was hit by lightning as it was parked during a storm and when i came back it it it was totally dead.
Started it using jumper leads and it ran for about 1/4 mile then cut out.
Trying to restart it the car turns over but then immediately cuts out as if it is not getting fuel.

1996 Buick Park Avenue: Growling sound coming


The growling sound is the heater/ air conditioning motor. It looks like you have to pull the dash board to replace. Go to a junk yard and practice.

Hello monkzero0 I will explain what the problem happens during the hot season while it works very well during the cold season as it happens. 3 aucra we have 92 in the same family and all the same problem...


I have a sticky gear shifter in my automatic 1992 as well. Cut an extra set of keys and use the "shift lock bypass" on the gear selector in really cold weather. A redneck solution, but it's kept my car rolling trouble free for two winters of commuting 700km/week in the snow.

We have a 2007 Entourage and you cannot lock it with the car running. We installed a remote starter and it will not lock the doors when it is remotely started. Can this feature be disabled?


i think that this is to prevent you from locking your keys in the car with the engine running.
Some remote starters have a feature that when the car is running (and in park) you can hit the remote start button twice for one second each - then you can take the key out of the ignition and still have the car running.
At this point....if you would hit the 'lock' button on your door the doors would immediately unlock. However, if you get out of the car and close the door leaving it unlocked and then you hit the 'lock' on your original car remote the doors will lock and stay locked. So now the car is running the doors are locked and you have the keys in your hands. Then you can run into the store or house real quick with your car locked.
Once you come back, you hit 'unlock' on the original car remote. the doors will unlock - you can get it - and then before hitting the brake put the key in the ignition and turn it (dont crank it) as if you had when originally using the remote starter.
Maybe this will work for you.....

I don't know but seems to me that electrical storm did not cause this, a car is a pretty protected environment (also for the electrical equipment) for such stuff, unless you had a direct lightning hit.
I presume that a hit will be very noticable and I always heard that cars are very seldom struck and therefor are a very save place in that respect.
If it is caused by the electrical storm , I would try to disconnect the battery for a period of time and try again before replacing computer and such.(check fuses to rule everything out)
