Hello! There is a device called the MAP sensor. It is located after the air filter, and before the intake. A 3" to 4" plastic tube with a wire connector coming out of it's side; Connected with a hose in and hose out that connects to the intake. This is the culprit 90% of the time. Auto part stores sell it for around $80-$90. Check both hose for cuts or holes which allow dirt to enter after the air filter. The MAP regulates fuel flow. Radio Shack has a product called "Deox It. The catalog # is 64-4338 and it is used to clean electrical devices. Cost is around $15. Try cleaning it first and see if your trouble clears.

How do i reset the ecm on my 1999 vw beetle


you can plug in an OBDII tester and erase the codes for the check engine light that's about it, you can't reset the computer by disconnecting the battery on a VW, it will have to be done by a dealer.

I have a 1999 vw beetle diesel that the starter does not engage when I try to start. I have a new battery that seems to be fully charged but the lights dim when in start mode but there is no noise.


Then remove the electrical starter motor out from the engine, and repair it by replacing the engaging coil & electrical brushes (if necessary).

You might try looking under the car for smashed fuel lines.The fuel lines run down the sides under the car,running up on a curb could very easily crush them leading to fuel starvation.Good luck,
