Did you get an extended warranty on this car? If so that will make this repair free, otherwise the sensor in question needs to be replaced (this is a somewhat common problem even in the newer models), and then it needs to be reset by a dealer. So either way you have to go to a dealer since only a dealer can reset it. A pain but hopefully you have a warranty still on it or the dealer will replace it cheaply. Let me know how this turns out.

Vw convertable top


There are two strings in your top...they are red I believe...look down inside the sides of the top...pull them up to release the tension on the top....then open your trunk lid and on the left side there is a little switch turn it counter clockwise then you should be able to release your top and put it up manually....then latch it into place...then go back to your trunk and turn the switch back....it should work fine

ABS Light Stays on new brakes put on


Could be dirty abs sensors attached to your brakes. I would clean them with brake parts or elecronical cleaner.
Other possibility is a faulty ABS system.

2004 vw beetle trunk problem


I had the same problem and I did the following:
- demount the plastic cover of the trunk (2 screws)
- locked and unlocked the trunk, while it was open to understand the system (it's really easy)
- lubricate all relevant parts
- checked the functionality
- put the plastic cover back on
- done

Overall it took me 15 min. It worked on my beetle. No guarantee. I'm not a technician.
