2003 new beetle top won't go up

This morning my battery died so installed a new one. The top happened to be down at the time. After starting engine I tried to raise the top and the bat wing doors raised but the top motor did not run and the top did not go up. I am wondering if there is a fuse link somewhere that I have not found that may be blown. I have checked the fuses and the fuse links on top of the battery but all seem to be ok.
Any suggestions welcome!!

Hi, I have a 2003 bettle
convertible and the roof wont go up. tried the reset with the windows and still will not work

Try resetting the pinch protection program. You do this by inserting the key into the drivers side door, turning to the right and holding untill the windows are fully raised. Then you turn to the left and hold untill the windows are fully lowered. This is supposed to reset the program.

Good luck.

Check your oil. It is possible that your car has a low oil pressure shutoff and when cresting the top of the hill, the oil goes to the back of the oil pan, telling the sensor it has no oil and shutting down the car before any damage occurs.

My 03 vw beetle died while i was driving it


Let me know when you said died it died completely even after the repairs you did the engine is not cranking or it does? have you checked whether any relays are overloaded and blown? Probably the main engine relay is blown. Also check if the starter motor is burnt too,or any earth wire is not well connected ( tight on the chassis with the engine block)

2001 new beetle won't start has new battery


I have a 2003 new beetle TDI. I have got error codes on my ECM that have stopped my engine from starting. I got an OBD2 reader from the auto parts store. I plugged it into the OBD2 port below the steering wheel and got the error codes. After writing them down, I cleared the codes. the car started fine. It has pulled this a couple times over three years. I carry an OBD2 reader with me so I can clear the codes and get going again. Good Luck
