2002 Beetle Engine cuts out after it warms up for a few hours.

my advise to you is that:
Your VW problem is the throttle body, (good news) it doesn't need replacement, it only needs to be cleaned out, and even better if a good technician (know what he is doing) can run an adaptation procedure.
this will restore the ZERO position for the TPS and relearn the target engine idle speed.
Good luck.
Note: you are in my prayer.

Beetle starts and then dies within seconds?

It could be anything. I think what you're refering to is if the ignition switch is still good.

Engine starts and runs for 2 seconds then dies. I have tried both keys with same results. There are no warning lights and no codes.

Had same concern with my 2002 Beetle Turbo S on 9/11/2011. Tried both keys too.If problem started all of the sudden and no other symptoms tow car to dealer with both keys and have them both programmed. For some ungodly reason it is a common problem for these keys to lose program and cause immobilizer system to engage because security system thinks car is being stolen so it will start and die in 1-2 seconds. Another option is you can search for the free step by step software online to program them from your laptop but you must have an OBD connector that connects to vehicle onboard diagnostic connector and must be a USB port on other end to connect to laptop. Don't know where you could buy this cable, I lucked up and had a friend that owns a repair shop who let me borrow the one that connects to his OBD scanner. As soon as they were programmed vehicle started immediately.

2002 Beetle - starts but won't keep running.

it could be a bad fuel pump, crank position sensor, broken/misaligned timing belt, etc. basically you need spark, fuel, and air to make the engine run. also the timing belt needs to be not broken and aligned properly.
