05 NB convertible with manual top beeping

30

Asked by Apr 02, 2015 at 11:18 PM about the 2005 Volkswagen Beetle GL 2.0L Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Loud beeping when the top is down and you put it in gear.  After stopping at a light, when
you hit the gas, it beeps again for about 5 seconds. The VW car indicator also constantly
flashes orange whenever the car is running.  Any ideas?  Again, this is a manual
convertible, so no power switches or pumps to mess up

This top should have a power control even though you're able to control it manually without damage. The beeping would indicate a fault code in the top mechanism. I'd find an independent shop that uses Rosstech or Vagcom and have the top system scanned for fault codes. You probably have a malfunctioning microswitch(there are several) or latch.

It is a 100% manual top, no power control whatsoever. Regardless, I do not know anyone that has the scan tools mentioned, and I'm trying to avoid paying anyone to fix, as I'm broke. If someone can tell me where the micros switches are and how to get to them, I can check them out
