Some times car won't start then I turn the key on and off many time then it starts , happens once a week

It sound like your ignition switch is going. Does anything else turn on such as the radio or the heater fan? If they turn on it is most likely your ignition switch.

My 1999 new beetle won't start

Sounds like the battery is dead..Sometimes you have to clean the jumper cables and terminal on the battery to make a good connection try that and let your battery charge for a few minutes before trying to start it. If that doesnt work you may have a seized starter! Good Luck!

Radiator fans

This is probably due to a short in the fan regulator temperature switch. I'd recommend finding it (it runs directly to the fans I believe) I know it does on the '01 beetle. However, a short will cause this as the switch bypasses the ignition and allows the fans to run whenever the switch can say to.
