Disconnect the battery and let it sit for about 30 minutes then reconnect. that should clear the codes. or get an ODBII code reader (about $40 ) and push the clear button. that's the easiest and you can read the codes too.

SOURCE: 98 VW Beetle 2.0L, Check engine light with OBD Code PO118

BTW - if you have less than 100,000miles you might be able to have your cat replaced under warranty by the dealer. In Canada it's 160,000km.

SOURCE: Reset check engine light after repairs. Which fuse? 99 New Beetle

goto a sears automotive center,walmart,pepboys or some place like that, they sell OBD 2 code readers for the car, you connect it up to the computer and it will tell you what the code is that is setting the light off on the dash, if it is what you fixed, then you click on the the button to reset the light and you are done... the OBD2 readers can be anywhere from $20 to $40 or so dollars from those places. just get a cheap one cause that will save you a lot of money. but atleast then if the light ever comes on again you can connect the reader up read the code and fix the problem that is causing the check engine light to come on...hope this helps and saves you money

SOURCE: VW beetle manual to automatic conversion-- possible?

I disagree with honeymokey, but only partly. Most cars are built to accomodate either manual or automatic, and the appropriate version of the transmission gets bolted on at the factory. The fittings are all there for the other kind, though, and the car's computer can accomodate the change as well. That's the whole point of interchangeable parts. In fact, if you read VW fan forums like the TDI Club online, you'll find plenty of folks who've converted their transmissions, though they're usually going in the opposite direction (replacing automatic with manual).

Having said that, this isn't a cheap or simple job. It only makes sense if the old transmission is dead, and needs to be replaced. In other words, it's something you'd do if you were already facing a $4,000 repair bill for a new transmission. Why not spend the money on installing the kind of transmission you really want, if you're going to spend it anyway? If it's just a question of preference, even STRONG preference, you'd have to be a bit nutty to replace a perfectly good transmission. There are plenty of used Beetles around (and Golfs and Jettas, which are exactly the same car with different bodies), so just find one with the transmission you want.

SOURCE: 1998 vw beetle codes p0411 and p1128

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
The 4mm inside diameter vaccuum hose gets pinched between the lower intake manifold and the secondary air pump housing, flattening it over time.
Here's a link to the steps to fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined...

P1128 Long Term Fuel Trim Is Too Lean
It is very likely this code is coming up because of the vacuum hose as well.

its the coolant temp sensor located on the lower hose neck above the transmission . you only need a pair of needle nose pliers for removing the clip that hold it in. good luck.

How do i reset the ecm on my 1999 vw beetle


you can plug in an OBDII tester and erase the codes for the check engine light that's about it, you can't reset the computer by disconnecting the battery on a VW, it will have to be done by a dealer.

I have a 1998 vw new beetle. The check engine light came on and not sure why. The car seems to be running fine. Last week we replaced the tensioner pulley and a new belt. Now I have the engine light on....


Some auto parts stores scan check engine lights for free. If you can get the code, and tell me what your engine/trans is in the Beetle, I can help narrow down the cause of the check engine light.

Check your fuse block for a blown fuse. There should be a schematic for the fuse block on the inside of the cover and/or in Section 3.2 of your Owner's Manual. In my 1998 VW Beetle I'd check fuses #5 and #11.

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.
