2003 VW beetle convertible will not start

Car would not start this morning. All the lights flash on the dashboard but nothing else happens. Even the clock is blank. Is this the battery or is it the starter?

    Went to start the car and it wouldn't fire up like usual. I heard a low, rapid, clicking sound. I was able to jump the car with cables but am concerned if this is a battery or starter issue.

    When I tried to start my car after work today, all the lights on the dashboard came on. I shut it offf, tried again, and it started reluctantly. I let the engine cool when I got home, tried again, with the same results. I thought it might be low on water but cannot figure out how to get all the cases around it off. And where do I put the water when I get it off? Will I just pour it in an open cell? Thanks to whomever can help.

Battery sounds like it has a dead cell, you can take it to autoparts store and have them check it first before buying a new one.

VW beetle 2003 won't start. nothing not a click


Check to make sure the master fuse hasn't blown. It's rather large and should be located next to the fuse box. Also, make sure you don't have a broken battery cable. With an ohm meter, check both the positive and negative cables. You should only see a few ohms of resistance. If you see a really high number or it indicates that it is open, replace the cable. I hope this helps! :)

My 2001 VW Beetle started losing speed when I go up a hill, and when I try to excellerate, it bogs down worse and the check engine light flashes off and on.


you sound like your catylitic converter is trying to stop up. When this happens check and have someone race the engine and fill and see if you have a good flow of exhaust coming out of your tail pipe and see if it is real hot .A good way is if it happens at night look at yourn converter and see if its red from the converter to the engine thats a sure sign thats your converter is stopped up.If its not then if the light stays on go to an advance store or some other place and they wont charge you to check and tell you what the obd 2 code is and post that back and let me know what the code is .Hope This Helps

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.
