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!!

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.

Cheque for disconnected vacuum hoses. sometimes this happen after working around the engine, if everything looks good, start the engine press down the accelerator pedal keep the engine running about 2500 rpm for 3 minutes then let the engine idle, if the engine idle this means you need a new idle speed control motor, if the engine still dies most probable the fuel pump it's going out if you have a code reader it's possible you have some codes and this can give a good direction

Dies while decellerating


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.

Cold engine start


Two problems come to my mind, first the spark plug wires have high resistance and the second which I think makes more sense is that you have an injector leak down problem. If the vehicle is parked for more then 4/5 hours the fuel rail will loose pressure and so when you start to crank it builds up pressure and then finally starts!

What are the uses of high raise of the engine (RPM)?


If the engine is cold it will race until warm. If the battery voltage is low the ECU will use a high speed to charge the battery.

2004 dodge durango engine shuts off while driving


I had this happen to me before. My battery had went out and I had put another in (didn't buy a new one-- it was holiday). It did this exact thing to me. The scary part is once, it was on the interstate going about 75 mph... didn't die but all gauges went to nothing. It turned out that the battery I was using didn't have enough cold cranking amps and was pulling down the alternator too much so the computer shut it down. The one time it didn't... it was because the RPH's were too high. Try checking the battery and alternator... make sure you have the right battery and have an alternator shop test your alternator if the battery is good.

2000 jeep cherokee starts then stalls in approx 3 sec 4.0 has new crank sensor


I am going to assume that it will not run even if you push on the accelerator pedal?
Can you install or attach an old timing light to the spark plug wires, turn it one and try to start it. The light should flash with the engine running, but if it shuts off at time of engine die, and the engine is still spinning, you are losing spark, My suggestion is the cranks shaft sensor on bell housing.
Second, install a pressure gage on the test port on the fuel rail and watch it as you start the engine, fuel pressure should not drop as the engine dies, if it does, the pump is not working correctly. There are two modes of power to that pump, one to start and timed, for only a few seconds to prime the system, and one to run continuously. Find the wires going to the pump at the tank. Connect test light to those wires and watch what happens during crank and at stall, You should not have the pump shut off and the engine dies.
If you have spark, and fuel pump working, when did you last change the filter,,but I put that LAST.
It has to be one or the other of these.
Good Luck
