Yes it does. If you don't have the throttle body on it, it will overrev.

THE EPC LIGHT COME ON AND THE CAR WON'T GO INTO GEAR, 2004 VOLKWAGON BEETLE


Scanner required to isolate fault and code.

Could be 'Throttle Body Adaption' not set or 'Brake Lamp Switch' faulty..... VW upgraded the Brake Lamp Switch, for which there was a recall.

Turn ignition key to the run position with engine NOT running, and do NOT touch the throttle pedal..... you should hear the Throttle Body Adaption running after 10 to 15 seconds. Leave key alone for another 45 seconds and turn off ignition.

Restart the engine . This may clear the problem.

Otherwise seek help via http://www.iatn.net/shopfinder/ for a shop in your area.

ETC light is on, engine has problems starting.


The EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) is the "fly by wire" system that controls the throttle, it took the place of the cable that went from the gas pedal to the throttle body on VW. If this light is on and there is also a P0102, MAF (Mass Air Flow) related code stored in the vehicle's computer, the EPC may be caused indirectly from a faulty MAF. If the EPC is on and there is no other codes stored, it could be a faulty electronic throttle body or need to be re-programmed. The vehicle's computer must recognoze the throttle body so when replacing it with new or used it will need to be programmed at the dealer. Recently I replaced a MAF (a common problem on VW's) on a VW Golf and when I cleared the code the EPC went off as well.

There's several things it could be...MAF sensor, brake switch, throttle body, faulty wiring, ECM or accelerator pedal. Any one of these can cause it. Need more detail on the problem.

  • Check Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Purge Regulator Valve (N80)
  • Check Exhaust System for Leaks
  • Check Secondary Air Injection (AIR) for Leaks

Is your check engine light on? Check the throttle body or maybe the accelerator pedal is bad.

How do i get at the alternator on my vw beetle 1998


We have a 2000 Beetle. You have to remove 4 allan head bolts and remove the throttle body . Remove it from the large hose. This allows you to get to the alternator . Undo 3 bolts on the belt tensioner and remove that. Undo the electrical connections on the alternator. Undo 2 bolts holding the alternator on to the bracket and pry out. Here's where I just about had a meltdown, the alternator won't fit out past the body work. However remove the passenger side headlight. There is a plastic lever you slide all the way up and slide the headlight out. Remove the 3 torx head screws to remove the headlight cup and the alternator will come out no problem through the headlight hole.

How do you replace the battery in a 2004 volkswagen beetle


VW managed to fit the battery in the very last bit of space available. There is a bolt in the front that clamps the front edge down. Once it is unclamped, you'll need to unbolt the power steering reservoir to make room to get it out. If you don't use a "data saver" on the cables, you will need to enter the radio security code and possibly re-adapt the throttle body.
VW is short of volkswagen. Thank you.

Check the engine codes, and replace or repair the faulty sensor (most likely the MAF sensor).
