Your Oil Pressure Sensor is probably going bad or you could have a shorted wire from the Sensor to the dash. Find the Sensor and check the wiring for any breaks, chafing, or burnt insulation, check the routing of the wiring to make sure it is not touching or rubbing on any hot Engine Components, Exhaust Pipes or Exhaust Manifolds.

I bought a 2001 Volkswagon New Beetle with 23,000 miles on it. It had been sitting up for a while. Oil light blinking and beeping. Had the oil changed and it is still blinking and beeping.


Did the person who changed the oil reset the service indicator?
If the did not you need to have them reset it or reset it yourself.
Press and hold the button just below the speedometer and turn the ignition switch to on but do not start. Release the button and the word "Service" should appear on the trip display window. Press and hold the button until the word "Service" disappears.
You should be good until the next oil change.

Turn cruise switch on and nothing


2 things prior to running the cruise control self Test

1. Do you have operational brake lamps ?

2. Have you had the recall done ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.
1L1Z-9F924-AA 14 supplements in the recall series

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

- 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

- 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

- 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

VW beetle convertible 53 plate. the roof works one day and then not the next. It has never had a problem going back up but when you want it down some times works sometimes doesn't. Is there a easy...


The beetle has also been recalled for a sunroof issue, I found this website:-

http://newbeetle.org/forums/questions-issues-concerns-problems-new-beetle/43357-new-sunroof-recall.html

Where it says:-

"Sorry if I put this in the wrong place but I just got a recall notice for the sunroof drains on my bug.
It's SERVICE ACTION 60A7/S9 and pertains to all NBs from 2001 - 2007 equipped with sunroofs. It's also for certain Jettas, Audi A4s, Golfs, GTI, and Passats. You'll probably get a notice but I wanted to let people know just in case, for some reason, they don't get the notification...maybe because they're not an original owner etc.

VW will clean, modify and inspect the sunroof drains and tubes. There's also a form to be reimbursed if you've had to pay for any problems in the past".

Which means that, if you or your car didn't go to this recall, then VW will sort it all out for you for for free. Its a manufacturer's problem.

Just pop in to a dealership and ask, if its been done, you're back to square one but its worth a crack................. Good Luck.

However, here's a website which shows you how to service your sunroof.

Cruise control no working on 2001 f-150 4 x 4 5.4


Did you have the recall done ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

Try the self test for the Cruise Control :


With the key off depress and hold the cruise control off button while turning the ignition to the run position,don't start the truck, the cruise light will flash once to let you know it is in self test.
Five additional flashes indicate a bad cruise control servo

Release the cruise off switch and within 5 seconds depress the other switches in sequence:
1. on
2. resume
3. coast
4. set/ accel
The speed control light will flash as each switch is depressed.

If the last one does not flash it may then flash a code

After this the cruise will move the throttle to test the actuator and the cable.
Make sure the throttle returns to idle and turn the key off.

My wife says the oil light just came on her 2001 beetle (is this a low level sensor?)


oil pressure sensor = when oil light comes on = sensor is not recieving a high enough oil pressure. 1) Did you check the oil level in the engine? 2) if the oil level is fine, and it just had an oil change, the filter (filament style) might have been installed upside down. also does the light come on and beep only during first couyple seconds of being started or while driving down the road?

Bad missing in motor on 2001vw beetle


If it is a 1.8 turbo the plugs are under the coil packs on top of the engine. A regular spark plug wrench will fit them. They are down in the block about six inches. They are easy to change. I changed them in about 30 min. The coil packs are held on by 2 torx screws.
