    I had the same problem with my 2004 beetle conv. They had to replace the front inpact sensor, if the light blinks is not safe to drive. the bags can deploy . Take it to the mechanic and have them fix it.

This problem was covered by a national recall. I had mine fixed at no cost to me ($1,500.00 paid by VW). If you have paid to have it fixed VW will reimburse you.

I had the same issue and I got it fixed under the warranty and mine was also the sensor too, front right. They told me it could deploy at any time, I didn't want to wait and see if that was true.
As for the rear turn signal these are really hard to replace and trust me we tried, my dad, brother, my friend and the guy at the auto parts shop all tried! So I took the blub with me when I got my oil changed at my local place and they did it for $5, VW wanted $20 to change it and only using their blub - another $10!!

How can i remoove the driver airbag


The airbag removal tool is used to remove the driver's side airbag from the steering wheel on 1999-2004 VW Passat, Jetta, Golf, and Beetle where Torx head screws are no longer used. Best left to a pro. Disconnect battery before attempting any airbag repairs! have a good day !!

Why did the airbag light go on vw beetle


There could be many reasons, the most common is a bad seatbelt buckle but the way to find out why is to have the airbag computer scanned, when scanning there are codes stored, this codes tell you the reason why, and what is not operating right,you would need a shop with a scan tool to diagnose, also when the airbag system sees something not working right it shuts down the system so no false airbags are deployed,so as long as the light is on you have no airbags that work, hope this is helpful.

The warning light above the airbag light on the dash. 2002 VW


Malfunction indicator light it is the symbol of your engine with a line of suffering and the word "CHECK" -- this could be something minor like needing a spark plug to be replaced (common problem) or to something more serious like engine electrical work needed. a flashing engine light is the more serious so you are not to worry.

How can i stop airbag light from blinking while driving


Your airbag light blinking is telling you that something is wrong within the airbag system. The blinking is giving a code, it will blink x amount of times, then pause and again blink x amount of times. Example it blinks 3 times, then a pause, and then blinks 2 times, means the code is 32.

After you get the code you can find out what the problem is, and what exactly needs to be repaired. If you're not experienced with airbag systems, it is best to have it serviced by a professional.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
