Question about 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
Just wondering how the wiring for a cd changer in the trunk of the 2004
vw beetle is done??Whether the harness can be plugged right inside the
trunk or the harness has to be wired right to the stereo console in the
front of the car. Please help??
the remote switch you are looking for is the fuel door switch that controls all these items trunk,unlock fuel tank door. this unit has to be replaced as a whole unit but check all your fuses first on driver side dash where door touches dash left side open door look for a triangle shape panel pop it open and check (ALL) fuses and especially #17 brown 7.5 amp fuse top right of fuse block.

there is a little lever at the back of the headlight just to one side,lift it up and gentle pull the light.this lever is black and can be very tight oil the slides well before you put it back in

I had the same problem and I did the following:
- demount the plastic cover of the trunk (2 screws)
- locked and unlocked the trunk, while it was open to understand the system (it's really easy)
- lubricate all relevant parts
- checked the functionality
- put the plastic cover back on
Overall it took me 15 min. It worked on my beetle. No guarantee. I'm not a technician.

i am a vw tech there is a fuse on the back of the radio if it is not bad you need a radio now if you go aftermarket when installing the radio clip the brown wire and tape it off or this will cause communication isues with the control modules

Testimonial: "thank you sooooo much! :)"
As you see in the first illustration. you can use your key to pry open the cover. It may or it may not contain the fuse locator card.
