Check your ground wire to the frame and the wire's are tight on the alternator. Your neutral cut off switch on the transmission is faulty.

1) check the voltage regulator, but, really that is a simple machine and this should be easy to figure out- buy one of the many VW bug service manuals on the market- even stoned hippies could fix them- 2) that car is so old, there are no electronic gizmos on the clutch to keep it from starting- best way to start a car, anyway, in neutral-
