I have a 2003 new beetle TDI. I have got error codes on my ECM that have stopped my engine from starting. I got an OBD2 reader from the auto parts store. I plugged it into the OBD2 port below the steering wheel and got the error codes. After writing them down, I cleared the codes. the car started fine. It has pulled this a couple times over three years. I carry an OBD2 reader with me so I can clear the codes and get going again. Good Luck

I bought a 2001 Volkswagon New Beetle with 23,000 miles on it. It had been sitting up for a while. Oil light blinking and beeping. Had the oil changed and it is still blinking and beeping.


Did the person who changed the oil reset the service indicator?
If the did not you need to have them reset it or reset it yourself.
Press and hold the button just below the speedometer and turn the ignition switch to on but do not start. Release the button and the word "Service" should appear on the trip display window. Press and hold the button until the word "Service" disappears.
You should be good until the next oil change.

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.

VW beetle new CD player draining battery! I recently bought and installed a new CD player to my 2001 vw beetle. Previous was factory tape player. After a week of new player battery drained completely.


Did you find a solution? If not reconnect the power wire to either ignition or accessory, this way when the key is taken out there will be no power at the radio

2001 new beetle battery drain wont start


Alternator!!! Boost the car, if starts let it run for a few min. Once the car has stayed running for a couple of min, unhook the negative terminal on the battery, if it stays running, the battery is junk. If it dies, the alternator is junk. But this is just my past experience, and it worked.

Never know.

I try to jump start my 2001 vw beetle but it just keeps turning over and won't start. the last time it did it was bogging and died. ever since it just turns over but wont start.


sounds like your battery may be bad. take it to autozone to have it charged and tested for hold-charge. takes about an hour or so. and its free.

CANT GET VW BEETLE STARTED


hi if its not been started for five years and it is trying to start but just won,t keep running get someone to tow you and jump start it because i suspect the compressions will be low due to a build up of damp carbon valves sticking all in all the seats on the head and valve will not be seating so if you persisist with the jump start it forces the valves onto the seats and will clear the debrie if it still won,t go check your compressions yates210456
