Question about 2004 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

I have the same problem everyone seems to have with the 2004 beetle convertible. I try to close the driver side door but the window sensor is not working. I played around with the door latch which activates the sensor and I get nothing. My question is.....Where is the actual electrical component located, that makes the window sensor work? Is it in the door itself or does the wiring go all the way back underneath the hood somewhere?

There is a micro switch located in the door lock assy, sometimes the switch gets gum up, you have to take the lock out and clean it to repair.

2004 vw beetle drivers side window does not work with key fob or door switch and does not go down slightly when door is open or convertible top is lowered. all other windows work. door locks will not work...


Open the drivers side door and see if you can peel back the covering on the wires going into the door. Sometimes from opening and closing the door so much 1 or more of the wires break or rub bear and contact each other or something else. Check if all the wires are good.

2004 VW Beetle Convertible. Drivers door window could not go down yesterday because of ice. The window still works but it does not perform it's drop down and going up as it should when door is opened and...


can you hear the motor trying to work the window? A fairly common problem is the window regulator breaks. this is the cable operated lifting mechanism that raises the window, when it breaks you can hear the motor winding away, accompanied by a faint clunking noise as the motor tries to operate the mechanism. They are quite difficult to replace.
if you cannot hear the motor working (also assuming all your other windows do work) then either to motor is faulty or there is no power to the motor. the wiring inside the rubber boot that goes from the car to the door (by the door hinges) is prone to breaking due to the constant flexing back and fourth as the door is opened and closed. switches can also fail, you may be able to swap the drivers/passengers switches around if they are identical for testing.

04 Beetle Driver's side window sensor issue (maybe?)


Not likely. You have a defective window regulator. To fix remove the door panel. Peel down the warer barier. Remove the window motor and check it. If the plastic plugs are defective replace. To remove the window regulator you will need a 1/4 inch punch to punch out the rivits and 1/4 inch drill to drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and lock nuts.

When I open the driver side door, the auto window drop feature malfunctions: either it does not open slightly, or it closes early, before I close the door. Where is the sensor/regulator? Car is a 2007...


Sensor is in the door switch. You could try a little wd 40 into the key hole(could just be sticking). Not easy to repair. You could do further damage to door.

Window sensor drivers side


as far as the window goes... here is the full reset procedure. I beleve in your case you only need to do part #2

GLASS RESET PROCEDURE: If window is hindered whilst closing, it will open again immediately. Attention: does not work when using car key to open/close window. After window has opened, lift and hold appropriate switch within 10 seconds. If window is still hindered it will stop closing. After window has stopped, lift switch again within 5 seconds in order to close window. It will now close without roll-back function.

2. To reinstall this function: Lock vehicle from outside via driver’s door. When doing this, please ensure that all windows are completely closed. Unlock vehicle and then lock it again via driver’s door. Hold key in locking position for at least 1 second.

hope this help.
p.s. find a new dealership!!!
