The car starts when I add ether, but just for a few seconds after it just shuts off.

replaced fuel pump/filter is good 'fuel gets to regulator. replaced battery 'tyurns over strong but wont fire off...HELP PLEASE

It just started and it was starting to over heat when i parked it

Runs on all 4 cylinders starts quick runs for about 15 seconds then dies.repeats itself every time you restart it

my beetle was siting for about a year in my garage but now that I put on new spark plugs and new batteries it starts but not for long, I start the car but in a few moments the car stops ruining. I started the car again now it only cranks what do I do can anyone help me?

My drivers/passenger door cylinders quit working and I replaced them. That left me with three keys for my car: d/p door key, trunk key, and ignition key. Now the the driver's door actuator (I think) has failed as that door can not be locked but the key will still turn the cylinder and lock the other door. That's primarily why I want to go to a fob that can unlock all three doors. How do I do that?

This is a 5-speed manual.

when driving the windows go down and will not stay up even when parked in the garage. The turn signals flash when car is parked

Windows will not stay up, they go up and down and signals flash off and on while driving and when parked in garage
