You need to enter the code to unlock the radio, if you do not have/know then with the Vin number you can call a dealer and the will assist.

2001 new beetle battery drain wont start


Alternator!!! Boost the car, if starts let it run for a few min. Once the car has stayed running for a couple of min, unhook the negative terminal on the battery, if it stays running, the battery is junk. If it dies, the alternator is junk. But this is just my past experience, and it worked.

Never know.

Sounds like bad door latches. You may also need a drivers door lock cylinder.
You should be able to start the car by opening the trunk first. That should disable the alarm, disconnecting the battery will not help.

I have a 1998 new beetle the battery is dead and I cant open the hood and the hood release is not working. Any suggestions?


Sure!
Obtain one of those "portable air compressor/battery booster/power supply" ($50 or borrow one) and charge it using the supplied a/c adapter.
Then plug it into your 12v outlet (a.k.a.cigarette lighter) and the hood release (and your radio) should work.
