Everyone should own a low-cost multimeter, they are simple to use, priced under $20 US and available at any auto parts store or Radio Shack in the US.
With this, you could quickly determine whether your new battery is dead; there are several items that can fail and drain the best of batteries overnight. One of the most common is a faulty alternator which can draw current if there are bad diodes in it. After-market high-power audio amplifiers can cause this too. You can also use the meter to check (with the engine running) if the alternator is providing the needed charge voltage which can range from ~ 13 to 14.5 volts.

I have a 2006 new beetle, just put in a new battery about a week ago. It drove fine. My problem is, the car won't start when i turned the key. I tried many attempts, but just won't budge. Is


Hi there, with this kind of problem in general, you have to look on any source from where your battery is being drained. Check your new battery if it is drained again. If the voltage is below 12V means there is a close circuit that is using your battery while it is stopped. Recharge your battery and try starting your car or ask a friend to jump your car. If it wont start check your starter motor. Another factor to think of is maybe your alternator is not charging your battery.

Open the trunk with the key, it will disable the alarm. You probably need a new door lock cylinder, which you should look into. They're easy to replace, but take a while to get, as they have to be coded for your key. You can also remove the door lock cylinder by loosening the t20 torx screw near the door handle until the lock cylinder slides out(DO NOT LOOSEN MORE THAN NECESSARY TO GET THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT), then use a flathead screwdriver through the hole to activate the lock.
