I have a 2012 VW beetle turbo for a while it was slow to start. then one day after my day off I went to start it and it turned once and all the electrical shut off then came back on. I waited a couple minutes and tried to start it again it turned over a couple of times and then started. after driving it to work and then home with the same problem when starting it, i went to put up the windows after the car was off and they closed at a slower and labored rate and the car horn when locking it was low in volume. I had the battery check and they said it was fine and the indicator on the battery says it's fine but it has to be the battery right.
