How do i reset the ecm on my 1999 vw beetle


you can plug in an OBDII tester and erase the codes for the check engine light that's about it, you can't reset the computer by disconnecting the battery on a VW, it will have to be done by a dealer.

The brake lights (all 3) on my VW Sharan do not work although there is an intermittent flashing. At the same time the Glo Plug light is flashing. what is the cure?


There is a recall on the brake light switch. VW should replace it for free.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defective brake lights on Golf, GTI, Jetta, New Beetle and R32 are a potential safety hazard and should be replaced. February 26, 2007 - NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Around 800,000 Volkswagen vehicles have been recalled Monday because of faulty brake lights, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
The 790,000 vehicles include Jettas, New Beetles, Golfs, GTIs and R32s...all in the United States.
The specific years and models affected are:
  • 1999-2005 Jetta sedans
  • 2001-2005 Jetta wagons
  • 1998-2007 New Beetle
  • 2003-2007 New Beetle Convertibles
  • 1999-2006 Golfs and GTIs
  • 2004 R32
The malfunctioning brake lights and brake light switches could fail to come on or remain stuck on.
This recall expands on one announced by Europe's No. 1 carmaker last year, when 362,000 Jettas and New Beetles were recalled due to the same defective part.
Volkswagen said that dealers will immediately be prepared to accept service appointments to perform the repair at no charge, but the notification process isn't scheduled to begin until April.
NHTSA did not say if any injuries had been reported linked to the defective brake lights.

I have a 1999 VW Beetle and it will ot shift out


a code is stored. you will need to clear the code in order to get it to shift but as soon as the PCM sees the problem again it will have this same issue. You need to get this diagnosed before you end up far from home when this happens again.

Where is the backup light switch located....exactly


Inside the vehicle, mounted at the top of your brake pedel. Tough to get to and not an easy replacement for a novice. There has been a recall on the original brake light switches on most all of the early VW Beetles. You can get more information regarding the recall from your VW Dealer. The switch on my 1998 VW Beetele was replaced twice early on.

My tail lights in my 2002 VW Beetle keep going out. I've tried bulbs from Walmart, and VW OEM parts, and still have the same problem. Do I need to replace the connectors or the wiring???


The brake light switch has been recalled on New Beetles. I've replaced mine twice on my 2001. I was reimbursed by VW both times. I just had my regular mechanic fix it and turned in the paperwork. You can take it to the dealer and they should cover it, but I hate going to dealers because they always try to say something else is wrong with the car.

How to add Auto Trans fluid to 1999 VW Beetle & what kind of fluid


Been there tried that. The unit is more or less sealed. You will need to go to a VW dealer to have the fluid checked and added, if required. Be very careful, there's an entry port on the top of the transmission that some cables/wires go through. If you break this seal there is no simple fix. It costs about $700 to have it replaced by the dealer.

Cannot find dipstick to check transmission fluid on 99 vw beetle. do '99 Passats need transmission fluid added to the engine? If so, how do I do this?


There is no "dipstick for the VW Beetle transmission". This is a dealer check/repair item. The unit is typically sealed, but can have a leak if the seal on top of the transmission fails. About a $700 repair. This happened on my 1998 VW New Beetle.

1999 VW beetle over heats...a LOT


Sometimes, if the leak is small, when car is running and engine hot, you do not get dripping under the car because water is getting vapourized, before dripping down.

Check water level, if water level is going down, then there is either another leak, or the head gasket is going.

When head gasket starts to go , water is vapourized into the engine.

If car overheated after the radiator problem, it is not uncommon that this may had damaged the head gasket, go back to the dealer and complain, as after replacing radiator, the car should had been inspected properly for additional problems.
