Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

My 2001 Beetle stalls when I stop at a red light, won't idle

My Beetle was running just fine and now suddenly when I stopped at a stop sign it just stalls. The lights stay on and the battery light comes on. I have to put it in park and start it up again. As long as it's running and not left to idle it's fine, but mainly it won't idle. The rpm needle is jumping up and down. I've noticed the rpm needle jumping from time to time but nothing as far as stalling like it just did.

SOURCE: 2004 new beetle won't start in the am without

Hi, seems to me it's time for a new battery, probably the original battery in the car and 72 -78 months is a good useful life, however you can pull in to a place like auto zone ( I suggest at a time when they are not that busy, early a.m. ) and they will do a diagnostic check for free and check out the charging system , battery , and any drainage of current when everything is off for you but I'm sure it will be ok or it would not crank all day but the long over nite hours drains what little voltage that is in the battery. A battery that is bad will not fully charge because of a bad cell inside of it. Good luck, hope a battery fixes you up!!

Check for vacuum leaks. Also try cleaning the ISV.


If that doesnt work go to vwvortex.com and post your issue there

It sounds like your alternator is dieing out, or you have dropped a belt (should overheat though) With the vehicle running, remove the posative cable from the top of your battery and see if the vehicle stalls. If it does it's a good sign your alternator is no good.

When I approach stop light and press in clutch to shift down, car stalls. Battery light comes on. Sometimes will restart and be OK until next stop, other times will not restart until it "rests"...


if it is cranking and starting back i would say its not a batt or alternating problem

most likely the reason the batt light is coming on is because its idleing rough as it quits running if it were me i would just drive it to a dealer and save the toe bill
