I have a 2005 VW New Beetle and the drivers side window quit working all of a sudden. When I went to try to put the top down the button that you mash to put it down will also not work. What is wrong?

If the passenger side work,s it wont, be fuse on the window,but could be fuse on the roof issue,if not fuse may need to start checking switche,s and wiring.

To put top down----Make sure all four windows are all the way up before you do this. If they're down right now, turn on your engine, put them all the way up, and turn the engine off. Go get your favorite adult beverage, and return to the car. Get in your car. Close door. Turn on the engine. Use the Master Switch (all four windows at once) and put the windows all the way down. Wait a second or two. Then put them all the way up. Turn off engine. Turn on engine, roll your windows all the way down with Master Switch again... release the top, and drop it with the open/close top switch. Should work. That's the reset procedure anytime your top fails to drop.

Cars are reading each other, can't tail-gate, lane control, brake assist..all leads to driver complacency and not safety. Oh, I don't have to pay attention the car will do it
