Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

2004 turbo convertible beetle

Automatic convertible went down, but when I tried to close it later in the day, the top won't go back up. The car is running, windows go up and down but top won't close now.

Is there an option to close it manually when the auto function doesn't work.

Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.

The top on you car is not completely folded back, once the roof appears to be seated keep holding the open button until you hear another click, If this doesn't work it means the roof parked sensor is not working which unfortunately will mean a trip to the dealer.

When the top is put down on my 2004 New Beetle GLS Convertible 1.8L Turbo, there is a beeping noise that continues. How do you stop the beeping noise once the top is down?


Just in case you still needing assistance.......

The micro switch in the handle assembly where you unlatch the roof is bad or out of adjustment.

That happened to me. I tried to re-insert the window into the track but it was impossible. The dealer ordered some clips and I think I paid about $50 to have it fixed.

COVErt Top stops before it is all the way down


Try using the reset proceedure of simply turning the car on and use the all windows up and down switch on the driver side door. This is used when the battery is replaced. It might re-set your motor.
