Why does my 1998 VW Beetle not start but the horn blows and lights flash when turn key to start it


I need more information. Do you mean that when you turn the key the horn blows and the lights flash on their own? Does your car have an after market alarm system? If it does you may have a problem with the alarm system. Does the car even make a sound like it is cranking? If not I would join an auto club that has free towing and bring the car to some one that installs aftermarket alarms and stereos and see if they can fix it.

I have a 1998 VW Beetle and Im trying to locate the alarm/buzzer that comes on with the oil light. I need to unhook it. ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY! HELP!!!


First thing, check your oil pressure. Even if you check the oil level, if the oil pump is going bad then the oil pressure isn't high enough to keep the engine lubricated- that's probably why you hear the alarm. You'll end up needing to rebuild the engine if you drive too much without the proper oil pressure. If you're really sure you want to disable the alarm you'll need to remove the dash to get to the buzzer and disconnect the wires. You can also experiment with removing the fuse for the instrument cluster, but you'll lose all your dash lights too. Good luck.

Have a 2000 VW Beetle. The alarm won't turn off!


My 2000 Beetle does same thing (although not all the time). Just found an internet post that suggests there is a problem in the door lock sensor. I assume you are using a regular key - not
the keyless entry - like I am. He also said that you can disable the alarm (also disables the
keyless entry - which doesn't bother me) by leaving the front door AND the rear trunk open and
starting the car up. Seems to work so far. I will get the door lock sensor replaced and turn the
alarm system back on (not sure how yet), and let you know if that stops the problem.

my beetle is fairly stubburn....for example: i tried cranking it with the alam going off and after five times the alarm cut itself off, then i started it and drove off. but that clearly is no valet over-ride because the second and third time didnt work. second time i unlocked the hatchh back and the assenger door and started the engine and it worked. third time....well...still trying.!!

If you do not have a Check engine light on and you have an alarm system, try in disabling that first and then try starting it. Do not disable the alarm by pushing the button, you must completely disable it. Some systems will act this way mhen the key did not register
