Question about 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

1 Answer

Roof problem I have a 2003 New Beetle and every time I stop and then take off a loud buzzer sounds for about 15 seconds. At the same time there is a light sensor that displays and flashes a lowered top, unstead of showing the outdoor temperature like it should. When I turn the car off, this sensor goes away and the temperature reappears. Someone please help! Is there some kind of sensor that I don't know about. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Mps75200.
When you lower your top down make sure it is all the way down before releasing the button. This would cause the buzzer to go off. There is a secondary motor that pulls the top down another 1-2 inches after the top appears to have stopped moving to lock it in place. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 VW Beetle outside temp display not working

For general awareness, the outside air temperature sensor is located above the inside mirror.
Try to reset the temperature measurement unit: 1. Switch engine on. 2. Press and hold clock minute (min) and hour (h) buttons simultaneoutly longer than 3 seconds. The display will show new temperature measurement unit.

SOURCE: 2002 VW Beetle Temp gauge flashing, why?

i had this exact same problem on my 2002 New Beetle GLS 2.0L. i tried adjusting coolant/water ratios, i tried changing the thermostat, but finally i accepted the inevitable and had my water pump replaced. the 2.0L Beetles (i am assuming your car is a 2.0L, correct me if i am wrong) have a plastic impeller inside the water pump. these impellers are very prone to cracking and then disintegrating themselves (which was the case with mine). i had it replaced along with my timing belt (the water pump runs off the timing belt) and it only cost me around $400 dollars. i have driven my car almost 10,000 miles since then and have not had a problem with overheating. i hope this helps.

SOURCE: VW 2000 New Beetle door sensor/car alarm goes off when doors open.

I found a thread - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461 that details the repair of the soldering on the key lock door module. Our 2000 new beetle had the same issue. Also sometimes it refused to start. Soldering pins fixed it all.

Also see http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107 for releasing window from track, And door handle from inner panel.

I ripped the door apart and re-solderd the pins. I only had one pin with cracked solder but two others looked thin so I did them while I was in there. It's about a four or five hour project if you have all the tools. (8mm triple square also called an 8mm internal was the hardest to find - Also needed Torx T8 T10 T15 and T30 plus Philips Screw Driver. )
Project is difficult but not too bad for the mechanically inclined. A 7 on a scale of 10.
Since re-soldering pins - no more issues! My guess is that a VW dealer would get $200 for a new moduel plus 5 hours of service time for this gig - easily a $500 to $1000 bill. My cost - several new tools - about $25.00.

You need to have a shop with VagCom scanner check it. It can talk to the top computer module and read faults. This system has numerous micro switches and contacts. You will spend lots of wasted time trying to figure it out with out the scan tool information.

When the roof is open, the warning light won't go out.


I know that when you lower the top, you have to hold the button up for several seconds after the top is completely lowered in order for the locks to engage. The top motor will still run and when it is finished, you will hear a "ding". to indicate it is fully down. The error will go away and your temp will show up again. I had to call the dealer to find this out.

2000 Beetle Loud Whirring at start up


its your secondary air pump. it turns on in the cold morning to inject more air into your exhaust, something about emission. its normal to be high pitched. once on my car it was way loud, i looked and the hose had disconnected. either way its normal if its not super loud. but if its everyone is looking at me loud then check for loose hoses!
