I,m willing to bet you have a bad transmission control module each one of the codes represent something different and you know the vehicle did not have that many problems occur at once i would say you have a bad control module and it is spitting out irroneous codes or it has been disconnected at some point and the trans will remain in limp mode until these codes have been cleared

2000 vw beetle 01m auto trans, car was fine, trans was fine, pulled out excelerated, car sounded like it went into neutral, wont move in any gear. P1680 code. Help

Has to do with the throttle position sensor or pedal position sensor. Needs to be on a scanner. Just to see which it not working. Could also be a limp mode code. since the transmission quit pulling. I suggest you get it to a transmission shop. Most shops won't/cant diagnose transmission. They will try though.. Just costs you more.

I have a 1998 vw new beetle. The check engine light came on and not sure why. The car seems to be running fine. Last week we replaced the tensioner pulley and a new belt. Now I have the engine light on....

Some auto parts stores scan check engine lights for free. If you can get the code, and tell me what your engine/trans is in the Beetle, I can help narrow down the cause of the check engine light.

98 vw beetle wont go in reverse

I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.
