Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

I have a 2000 vw beetle and I have two problems with it. The first is the abs light and traction light are on and sometimes they will go out but once you hit the brake pedal they will come back on. VW replaced the stop light switch but the light still come on. The last questions is why does my radio shut off after one hour of being on?

The wheel sensors might have debris. But to answer, I recommend hooking a scanner and find out if there are DTC's stored relating to those areas.

I have a 2002 VW New Beetle. The ABS light has come on and there is a chiming beep and the ABS light flickers. What could be the problem?


ABS - Anti-lock Brake System.
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. ESP system includes the ABS system.

1999 vw Beetle abs light is on. What does this mean and how much do repairs cost?


it will cost about a $100 to get it diagnosed. They will then tell you how much more it will cost to fix it. You can still drive the car with the light on. You just don't have antiskid capabilities.
