Hello. This is a problem that is often a wee bit of a challenge to correct because there are several possible causes:
1. Charging system working but weak.
2. Poor ground to headlights due to corrosion or a loose connection or a bad wire.
3. Bulbs which are on their last legs so to speak.

I recommend that you look in the yellow pages for an autoelectric repair shop. There you will find a technician who has all of the necessary diagnostic tools and knowhow to quickly find and fix this problem. Joe

What would cause a 2000 VW Beetle's headlights just to stop working? Everything was fine Wednesday. On further inspection we have found out that we don't have a horn, headlights, blinkers, windshield


recheck the fuses, use an ohm meter that"s the only way to be sure.
if the fuses are ok do the same with the head lights.
a blown fuse is the only reason i know of for such a sudden loss of all the things you mentioned.
hope this helps

Just bought a 2000 VW beetle. The headlights don't work. All the other lights work fine.


Check bulbs and fuses. If those are okay then it might be the headlamp switch.

Something is wrong,are they using vw parts, the head light has to have a bad ground or short somewhere to keep blowing bulbs or water is entering lens,the rest of the light need to be diagnosed,maybe you need to take to dealer or another dealer, good luck.

Thermometer won't work in my 2000 vw beetle after a dead battery


Most vw dealers will "reset" your thermometer for free. Just take it to them and tell them what heppened... They shouldnt charge you anything for it.

2000 VW Beetle Hatch won't close tightly.


Try taking the battery out of your remote to see if it just still sending the signal????? You might have to clean your remote with contact cleaner. Also check the latch to make sure nothing is in the way of the latch????

Head lights dimming and losing power while driving


Next time this happens, pull over and unscrew the gas cap. The vent may be clogged.

Otherwise, your catalytic converter may be failing. It can also clog and hinder engine exhaust.

Good luck !
