2000 VW Beetle Problems

Jane Schmanski

Asked by Feb 02, 2016 at 07:30 AM about the 2000 Volkswagen Beetle GLS 1.8T

Question type: General

My 2000 Voltswagen Beetle has been having some
issues lately. Some things that just popped up
recently, that never happened before. One problem
is when I open my driver side door, my engine shuts
off (when the car is in gear and in neutral). My
battery light also comes on. The second is when I
flip down my visors, the automatic lights DO NOT
turn on! Help is much needed, my local foreign car
mechanic doesn't know what's wrong.

Your help might be at the VW dealer if you can't find a good independent-

With New beetles and their electrical issues...Dealership or good VW mechanic. Has he checked your ECU for error codes?
