  1. Alarm sounds for about 10 seconds upon takeoff.

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2010 New Beetle Convertible. Starting yesterday, when I begin moving a steady Alarm goes off for 8 to 10 seconds and then stops. As soon as I stop again (as at a stop sign) and begin moving it goes off again. No indicator lights go off on the dash board. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Hey, My driver side door lock broke the other day as I was trying to manually unlock it (the fobs died ages ago).

    2003 Convertible 2.0/auto Last night the alarm went off. The key fob doesn't work (yes new batts), so I went out and opened the car, turned on the ignition and then shut it off when the alarm stopped. Should I not have done that? Because this morning the battery was dead. We jumped it and it...
