2002 Volkswagen Beetle QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My EPC light and check engine light are on but before this happen about a month earlier the door chime constantly came on and went off especially if driving over bumps and making sharp turns. I took my car to the local car clinic which could work on volkswagen vehicles. I was told that the constant chiming was caused by a faulty driver's door wiring harness and that needed to be repaired to make the chiming stop. By the time I got the door wiring harnes part, now the Epc and check engine light is on and the car will start but it will not drive. I know the problem is electrical but what exactly is the problem?
The devise inside the car does not open the rear lid and I would like to use my trunk for graceries, etc. I've read that it could be a cable, etec. and I really don't want to fix the stupid thing or have to take it in to a dealer (stealer). Can I just by pass all that and open it manually??:"?
I had my oil changed yesterday, they told me everything was fine with my car and that they would recommend the next time I get my oil changed to do a full system flush. After leaving I notice that my check engine light, my ASR, and my EPC light were on. I took the car back and they hooked it to a little computer that gave the guy two codes, he said the engine code was nothing was wrong and then it went out and they EPC was nothing and ASR was nothing to worry about. I left to go home and when my husband went to leave a little while later he said the check engine light was back on? This has never happened before with the check engine light after getting my oil changed. The oil light has come on before and I took it back to the dealership and they said the computer has to reset itself and that it will correct itself but I have never had my EPC, Check Engine or ASR light come on before and stay on.
I tried to drive this morning and I almost didn't make it to my destination. Yesterday there was a burning smell, but I thought it might be dry leaves on the manifold or something like that. This morning it was losing power and didn't want to stay in an idle.
I filled up with gas yesterday, and today my 2002 New Beetle Turbo Z started hesitating and the check engine light started flashing then stayed on. I drove it home but had to put the automatic transmission in neutral at each stop light. Could it be bad gas, and if so, how can it be fixed?
I have been quote $800 to replace a/c compressor. Is this a good price? I check fuses, could ther be another cause for "no cool". Thanks
NO cool air out of A/C at all. Got estimate for $1,000 to replace evaporator core, expansion valve and dryer with a flush to clean system. Is this excessive?
Had a rear end collision in 2002 New Beetle. The shocks in the rear bumper did deploy, contracted to absorb the hit, then returned to original position. Have seen that the bumper shocks must be replaced after collision. They are only good for one incident. Insurance Adjustor does not seem to know this. Any comments? Ideas?
When we start the car in you hear the turbo whine and then after a minute it stops. It also kicks in during the drive without even asking for it (accelerating).
