dead car battery

Asked by Apr 05, 2015 at 03:26 PM about the 2006 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5L Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I parked my VW Beetle over the winter and the battery went dead.  I know to jump it to get
it running again but does the computer have to be reset at the dealer?

Don't bother jumping it. Replace the battery. For future reference disconnect the negative (-) battery cable if you plan on not using the car for the winter. That's what I always do. No, the computer should not have to be reset. HTH. -Jim
