got a new battery and after cold weather with car not being used often battery went dead again, had it recharged last week and tonight my wife was driving it and the ABS light came on she pulled over and turned the the car off. It wouldn't start back up until I gave her a jump.

I don't have a OM Manual on order but have not received.Two lights have just come on today but don't know what they mean??What does check engine light and temperature light or oil light look like??

Car is in time - the timing belt is good - when you try to crank it - Sounds like the timing belt is broke - as if
there is no compresion?

I took the car in for a recall (summer 2010). They did they did a moonroof recall also. We had not had any problem with the moonroof. After the moonroof recall it begin to open up any time it wanted to. Happens about once a month now and the switch remains on closed but it is open. Can't trust it anymore could open up in the rain or a thief could get in and steal valuables we may have. I talked to the dealership but they said I had to have it diagnosed and would cost me at least $100. They will refund me the money if it is their fault. What should I be prepared to say if they say it is not their fault.

My transmission continues to clunk and freeze in low gear. The weird thing is that it seems to happen after an automatic car wash or after heavy rains. After it has sat a while, it shifts perfectly again. Any ideas? I had the valve body replaced AND had a complete transmission rebuild...neither solved the problem.

Do turn signals use a fuse? I plugged in a heated car seat 2 weeks ago into the cigarette lighter outlet, and it blew a fuse or two. My seatbelt light stays on and now both turn signals don't work.

while drivng as a passenger i felt a wobble in the rear of the car ...took it to the dealer they said you have a broken rear axel..and on the left rear the cv joint was leaking grease..needs to be replace...My question is can a broken axel cause the cv joint to leak grease.. do to improper alignement?

Just bought it today. Drove 200 miles home. Two issues:
1)Fuel gauge worked twice - both times about 5 minutes after fueling. Went all the way down to empty and stayed there. Fuel light came on and beeped at me both times, then went out 10 minutes or so later.

2)On the dash display, to the right of the display that shows park, neutral and drive etc. where it shows the gear the car is in (1-6) that worked about halfway home then went out and stayed out. Possible fuse? This is the automatic with TipTronic.Any insights much appreciated.

if engine has seized up due no motor oil will it still make a noise like it's trying to start when you turn the key, or will it make NO sound at all? and is there a safety kill switch somewhere that i might be able to reset and crank up the bug???

My daughter call me cause her 2002 beetle died. She noticed it losing power then it just died at a stop sigh. When I got it home I noticed the oil plug was GONE and battery dead. Charged battery, filled oil and checked ALL fuses but it will not even TRY to turn over and the epc light is on. Can any one help please????

we were checking the fuses with the key turned on and now it won't start, the fuel pump not turning on.

Where is the fuse or relay located that controls the power to the MAF?

I have a check engine light on and the code is for the mass air flow sensor. According to the Chilton manual I read out the connector to the MAF sensor and should have read 12v. I am getting no reading at all. Where do I go now?

It occurs all the time. Window does not work.

2004 VW Beetle 2.0L 4A GLS; mileage 57K; Is timing belt/water pump replacement really necessary at this interval? Car is performing great; no dashboard code sensors illuminated. Would it be prudent to wait until 70K?

looking at a 2oo4 vw, the check engine light stays on and we were todl it could be a blown headgasket,,it also needs the timing belt changed..would check engine light come on for that to let us know it needs changing or for headgasket..what is the price or replacing headgasket

What fuse controls the heated outside mirror. Is a relay used?


I went to close the glove box last week and the door fell back down. looks like one of the clips on the inside is stuck. I'm concerned that the whole panel needs to be changed, since it looks molded. any suggestions?
