Flashing top light 2008 vw convertible


Make sure you hear the beep after the top is down. The beep indicates the top is in full resting position. If you don't hold the button until you hear the beep, the light will continue to flash.

Convertible top alarm alarms when top is down when i stop n start


I believe the Qs - which is found many place is for when the top is open.
My selection of answers that make some sense, although I haven't gotten mine to stop, except for a little while yet!
Make sure the arm that you pull and twist to unlock is totally fully clicked back in it's holder before opening. There is definately a sensor that says this is in the strong position .

In the bow next to that mechanisim (near a securing spot) there is a sensor that goes bad. (One of the more common reasonable sounding answers (found above too) - especially as the car ages - it seems 5+ years and one can imagine where it is gets a bit rusted).

Same idea as above - and because of what it is - the sensor is just dirty and confused. Try cleaning with something that does not leave a residue.

Again the idea above, but with better - where and how. (This just sounds like the million $ answer for most): There is a small switch where, when closing and securing the top, it triggers the flaps to close. Location: passenger side windshield frame. What to do (might move the seat back and stand up). Place your pinky finger pointing in toward the driver's side and you will feel a little metal switch. You should be able to lift this up and down with your finger. Get some electrical grease and coat the switch as best you can. The problem is that a great deal of road grime accumulates and covers the switch.

Assorted suggestions to disconnect the buzzer or electrical: All bad. These cars like most modern ones have computer checks that do NOT take well to any override.

Clean all the seat buckle connectors. The top has sensors for these too. Maybe has greese on it?
The dual key turn in the drivers door to unlock fixes alarm problems like this in many cars.

I have a 2004 new beetle convertible and when I put the soft top down, the car starts beeping when I excelerate and the roof image where the temperature is supposed to be. I do not think it can go down any...


The top on you car is not completely folded back, once the roof appears to be seated keep holding the open button until you hear another click, If this doesn't work it means the roof parked sensor is not working which unfortunately will mean a trip to the dealer.

The electric wings will not drop when letting the top down.


I have the same problem with my car. I just bought a 2004 VW Beetle and have never owned a convetible before. So when I saw the wings I asked if this was normal. The mechanic at the dealer said that on the 04 those wings do not retract when the top is down, only when the top is closed. Now my car will beep when I start driving because the top is not down all the way, also the indicator light shows a blinking car in the temp display letting me know the top in not down all the way. I read a solution from someone else and it said to keep keep the button to open the top pressed or pulled.......whichever is the way to open it...until the motor stops, but that did not work. So I decided to do a little research online and saw pictures of 2004 convertible VW beetles with the top down....low and behold the wings were retracted when the top was down. So the mechanic at the dealer lied. If these people do not know what their cars do and don't do, they should not be working there. They are compltley neglagant and incompitent. If anyone has an ansewr for me, it would be appreciated.
