    I have a 2002 beetle 2.0 with automatic. The speedometer indicates about 45mph at 70-75 mph when cold and 25-30 when hot at 70-75 mph, I have been using the tach to drive by(it appears to be ok). the odometer is only picking up half the distance traveled, about equal to the speedometer, the...
  3. 2001 Beetle + LED Brake lights, kills cruise control

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I had a tail light burn out and thought I would replace both the newer LED replacement bulbs (got it on amazon) but it would appear this is incompatible with the cruise control system (at least on my old girl) as I noticed it immediately stopped working. I put back in standard filament bulbs...
  4. Cruise control overriding cluster readouts; can pull fuse to reset

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    TLDR: Using cruise control randomly & suddenly makes the fuel level readout completely out of spec, sets the speedometer & tach to current setting as a baseline readout where "0" newly represents the numeric value *before* the error was induced. ------------------------ Hi all, apologies in...
  5. Cruise speed drops in right curves

    Questions, Issues or Problems with 2012+ Beetle
    Hi All, new to the forum but hoping you could help with a cruise control problem I've got on my 2012 beetle. My speed drops 5-8 mph every time the road curves to the right. When the road straightens out it begins to accelerate back to the set speed. Wondering if it could be related to a vacuum...

However I recently noticed that when I use the cruise control it works fine although it feels a little...

  8. Speedometer, Transmission, and Cruise control problems

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    So I think these three problems are interrelated. I've read some posts about similar problems, but I haven't seen a clear solution yet so here's my problem. The speedometer needle on my car bounces at around 45 mph. It seems to work fine up until that speed, but after that it just bounces in...
