Hi
I would get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" - just Google it :-) and with a portable computer you could get the codes yourself. Again and again.

When you have the codes "ask" me. They don't always mean what they seem to mean.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,

Beetle looses power, stalls etc.


the best thing to do is have the car scanned. This will identify any electrical issue that might be causing this. The ignition coils on the gas engines seem to fail from time to time. This could also be the mass air sensor.

Stalling


I have a 2000 Sonata V6 with the same issue (low speed intermittent stalling). Finally found a Hyundai dealer that knew about the issue and replaced the CRANK SENSOR. This has dramatically reduced the stalling but it still occurs very rarely. I think the engine idle speed of my car is abnormally low and this may be a secondary issue not completely related.
