not sure on the new beetle, but the golfs have a problem with the wiring going to the ignition switch/steering column. it seems to melt the pigtail and cause all kinds of problems. my cousins R32 golf, windows don't work, climate controls don't light up so they don't work, no high beam headlights, and a few other things. it seems that most of the wiring to the fuse panel, and almost everything in the dash runs thru this switch/pigtail harness.
