Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
Try the following before calling your mechanic, these applies for some cars:
1. Check all the latches that hold the top open or closed. You'll feel sheepish but happy if this is the cause of the problem.
2. If the hood won't close, make sure the lid for the boot (hood hideaway or cubby) is open. If it's not, open it.
3. Check for a blown fuse.
Otherwise, you need to call a mechanic if everything seems to be okay.
Hope this helps and have a great day!
