Help!! Electrical problems in my 2002 VW New Beetle GLS!


Asked by Mar 04, 2010 at 02:22 AM about the 2002 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently hit 100k a few days ago, everything was working properly up until 2 days ago when I noticed my heater fan wasn't working! As well as my turn signals,my daytime\headlights, my wipers, both my heated seats and my ac system. But the moonroof,power windows and the radio work fine. Anyone else had similar issues? If so what's the cause and how much did it cost to repair it? Please help! Thank you!
