  1. Here we go again...but this time ABS and check engine light

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Thank you for all your help! Looks like I will be making a trip to see DJ again. If only I were handy with a wrench and had a clue of how to fix things myself. I managed to get the lawn mower running this evening so maybe it's a step in the right direction. :D

    I had the timing belt and water pump replaced when I bought her last year. That was at 104k miles. We're at 128k now.

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Stopped by Auto Zone on the way home And the codes are... praying this isn't going to cost a bundle. I still haven't recovered from the other repairs. :( Any advice, thoughts, guidance is appreciated. I've accepted the fact as long as I love Bella, I'm probably going to be poor. P1128...

    So Bella isn't feeling well again. Seems it's been every two weeks or so since I got her back from getting a new transmission & brakes. Throttle control has been cleaned, brake sensor replaced and now the ABS and check engine light comes on. Brakes have been acting kind of weird. Sometimes...

    mine is a 2001. Check Engine and EPC light came on then it would cut off. Would start back up but would eventually do the same thing again so I only drove close to home. It wasn't too expensive for the cleaning. $95 at a local vw repairman. Good Luck!

    It sounds very similar to what was happening to my car but I'm no mechanic. Took it to someone who works on VW's and he cleaned the throttle control and she seems to be doing fine now.

    Woo hoo! All better. DJ cleaned the throttle control and Bella seems to be running just fine now! We celebrated this morning by cranking up the itunes so it felt like we were having a party on the drive to work. :)

  13. What does your beetle smell like?

    The New Beetle Experience
    Crayons. I didn't really notice it at first, but everyone who rides with me says it smells like crayons. :)

    Thank you. I was given the number for a repair guy by that isn't too far away (Easley). Hoping she keeps working for me until I can get her to him. Usually, if I turn the car off then back on the light goes out and it drives fine for the rest of the day. It's come on again a few times, car...
