  1. OBD Inoperable

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Can’t hurt to try. Sorry to hear it didn’t work. Is it possible that a previous owner hooked his code reader up and knackered the port? Maybe a close inspection looking for damaged slots or damaged pins on your reader.
  2. 2001 vw beetle 2.0 manual kills power to engine while I’m driving

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Here’s the ultragauge website. I use the ultragauge blue in my car all the time, hooked to my phone so I can see what’s going on with my car. https://www.ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/ Y2kreflexbeetle has some good suggestions. MAF, crank or cam censor, a diesel doesn’t have a throttle position...
  3. 2001 vw beetle 2.0 manual kills power to engine while I’m driving

    A young girl that drives a stick. Kudos, my daughter has a 2001 white beetle TDI 5 spd, she’s been from Boston to Corpus Christi with that thing, she loves it. She taught her boyfriend how to drive a stick and she intimidates other guys because she can and they can’t. I just get a kick out of...

    Hope it’s worked for you by now.

    Pull that 7.5 and check it with a meter or replace it.
  6. Computer

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    If the computer was still in the seat and not reattached, then no it wont crank. If you have reattached the ECU and it still won't crank then you need to check your battery. Even if it's the wrong computer it should still crank and maybe even start, it would just shut off after 3 seconds. That...

  8. OBD Inoperable

    2.0 Liter Gas
    There are two 7.5v fuses in the fuse panel. Both are in the upper section of smaller fuses. If you have no power to the obd port one of those two fuses is bad. Position number 12. However I see on my notes that is for 04/99 forward. Worth checking again anyway. Even though the position may be...
  9. Key

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    A piece of black tape covers my daughters immo light also. I doubt the immo will ever come into play, her bug is a 5 spd stick which is the best theft deterrent there is in these days, no one can drive one.
  10. transmission acted up this morning

    Transmission Talk
    This is why I consider any vw with the 01M a parts vehicle. Scan for codes with a vcds. One resource is kansascitytdi.com. Rich knows his stuff about those less than wonderful transmissions.

    Definitely see some improvement.
  12. 2.5L NBC - radiator/cooling fan not turning on after engine is at temp

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Check the wiring to the cts , I’ve had the wiring to a couple of sensors rot right at the connector. Back up light switch, ac connector on top of the starter, so it can happen.
  13. Beetle dashboard lights

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    The blue light is normal, when that blue light turns red you’ve got overheating problems. The airbag light is as squeebug said, probably a seat belt buckle. There are a couple of wires that go from the buckle down the seat belt rod and under the carpet. One of them is probably broken it’s...
  14. Little more work on the wife’s bug.

    Photos: New Beetles
    A little more duct tape and I think you’re good. Seriously, that’s quite a project, looks like you’ve got the interior out of it also. Your wife will love it after you finish building (rebuilding) her car. Few people can do that or care to.
  15. 2.5L NBC - radiator/cooling fan not turning on after engine is at temp

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    You can check the fan by disconnecting the harness and applying 12v directly to it, if the fan works it’s good, if not it needs replacement.
  16. Stalls after start

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Any vacuum leak will not help your car run smoothly. I think you’re on the right track. Fix any leaks, a 2000 model year will likely have a lot of dry rotted, brittle hoses and rubber bits. Replace as needed.
  17. Tire tread chipped

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I drive Michelin’s all the time and I like them. That’s a very small spot, on my car I probably wouldn’t even have noticed because my tires are never that clean. I do a lot of back road (dirt) driving where a traffic jam is a tractor going up the center of the road. Keep watch for a week or two...

    20000 miles is a great find, congratulations! You may want to be careful using aftermarket parts. Electrical components and critical engine and driveline parts are best replaced only with oem, which can occasionally be found at places like rock auto along with the cheap junk that’s guaranteed...
  19. Tire tread chipped

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Tire pressure will make no difference for something like that. My guess is you ran over something, likely a piece of metal or concrete. That spot is so small I wouldn’t worry about it. It’s unlikely that it will ever be a problem. Unless of course another spot just like it shows up. What kind...

    Ross=tech is the company that engineered the vcds programming with vw’s approval. If you need support and call them you often get the owner on the line. They are located in southern Pennsylvania and speak perfect English. All updates are automatic and free. You can do all kinds of things to...
