It is problem with cooling,check if two fans are running with airco on,
if yes,check codes again,look at freeze frame data,
look for temp and time indication,with engine temp and rpm,
if temp is not high,check fan motors resistance,
one broken with ohm too high?

Car will start but shuts off immediately - 2002 volkswagen beetle


I have a 2004 vw Beetle 2 L engine that had the same problem.

After taking it to two mechanics finally diagnosed you need to start with replacing the Air Flow Meter. Fortunately for me this was the right fix.

It is an expensive part ($150-$200) that can not be returned.

You can also try a junk yard, you pull it and they run $40-$75.
That is what i did and it worked.

Good Luck.

What can I do to make the EPC light go off on my dashboard. I have no power and my turbo is not working on my 2002 VW Turbo S Beetle


First you have to scan for trouble codes (DTC), then you navigate using the codes where your problem or malfunction is located. Once it is isolated and repaired will erase the stored codes. You will recode it (new device handshake with ECM), do a setting to default.

If you just want the light off without doing the steps above.
  • Remove instrument cluster
  • Open to reveal where LED is located
  • Use black silicone caulking over the target LED
  • Let dry and replace cover housing
  • Install is reverse of removal
This will not fix your problem only hiding annoying light detection, although it would be dishonest when you sell your car with this fix, if not seriously illegal.

Had the same issue. I replaced one of the fuses in the little case on top of the engine. Check the fuse diagram in the manual, locate the one for a/c. The fuses are color coded by amps, just buy the right color and push into place. (I did this after verifying my coolant levels were normal)

My 2002 vw turbo beetle cut off while driving.


this is not good; you probably ran the turbo bearings dry and they have seized try to loosen the turbo by removing it breaking it loose and lubricating the bearings if they are still good or, find another one at the junkyard
