Question type: Maintenance & Repair

was driving 72 super beetle with headlights on in dark and the lights went out. parking lights with blinker on allowed me to see in the dark until I found a place to pull over. at that point I turned the car off and then it wouldn't start again. does anyone know what the problem could be.

My 74 would have the headlights go out when driving or if I wiggled the headlight switch. Replaced the switch and all is good. Might have had a wire come off there also. Won't start sounds like some type of wiring issue.

Check your fuses in the fuse box under the dashboard.
