First you need to repair the problem,after the repair if you drive about 100 miles with a couple cool down periods it will reset on its on, or with a code reader tool or you can try disconnecting the battery, hope this helps.

Is the code po411 and p1297 related to a loose oil cap seal in a 2001 new beetle turbo 1.8L?

Code 411 is a problem with the secondary air injection for the exhaust EGR system.
Code 1297 is a problem with the pressure relief valve in the crankcase.
I would clear the codes and see if they come back first.

Yes, the code PO237 is Turbocharger Boost Sensor (A) Circ Low Input. Most of the time it is a faulty sensor. Replace the boost pressure sensor for the trubo and clear codes.
I hope this helps.

On a 2001 volkswagen new beetle tdi manual transmission. I have the problem that when I start it after shutting it off and then immediateley or within a short time try to restart it. It does not start but...

Try clearing trouble codes with an OBC2 reader. ($70) at the auto parts store. Write down the codes before you clear so to ask about or look up later. You may need to carry a OBD2 reader in the glove box as do I. My engine will not start and my auto-trans will not shift. After I clear the codes all is good. Bad connections in the wiring harness can cause these intermittent codes. I have a 2003, the OBD2 plug in port is below the steering wheel, to the left a bit. Good luck

2001 Beetle check engine light is on. Car was sputtering out of first to second gear.. sometimes 2nd to third. Checked code and came up cyliner misfire. Had plugs changed. Engine light is still on. Car...

Hi, the MIL (engine check light) will only go out when the car has had 50 drive cycles - start, run to normal operating temperature and stop, without further faults. A normal EOBD code reader such as you used to check for the fault originally should also be able to cancel the fault and put the light out. If the code won't clear, suspect a faulty ignition coil. Which is a common fault on these vehicles.
Hope that helps Matt...

2001 new beetle won't start has new battery

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

Have fault code P0302 on 2001 VW Beetle. No it is Cylinder 2 misfire. What is likely cause, bad spark plug, wire, or Electronic ignition box?

this car has what is called coil over ignition which means no plug wires or cap so if it is missing swap coil from cyl 2 and any other cyl then clear code and rerun car till light comes back on then check code if it is still cyl 2 missfire then replace that plug if code changes to the cylinder that 2's coil was on then replace that coil <that car does have a recall for coils> if car is not missing and you have that code most likely isnt an ignition problem but will have a small vaccume leak so check the small hoses for leaks. very common for fuel preasure regulater vaccume hose to brake from age
