  1. 2005 NBC Relay panel

    New Beetle Convertible
    I have a 2005 NBC 1.8 turbo. I have a parasitic draw on my battery of 0.6 amps. After much testing and disassembly, I have determined the draw is in one of the red wires that connects to the bottom of the relay panel under the dash left of the steering column. There are 5 terminals on the bottom...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I posted this a bit ago but with a more confusing title as I didn't have anything narrowed down: My ABS, BRAKE, ENGINE Lights were all on. I changed my 5A fuse (ABS) and messed around to figure out what was blowing it. Heres the Before and after of changing the fuse. BEFORE: - AC not blowing...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Went to drive to work this morning and my windows aren't working. Tried to lock the doors upon arriving to work and the locks don't work either. The trunk and gas flap switches on the driver's side door still work; the passenger side window and lock switches don't work either. I don't think...

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Hi all! I am proud to say I just disassembled my dash and repaired my blower control! Even managed to reassemble it! :D In the course of this monumental feat, I noticed I'm missing a fuse in the interior box... The little card in the fuse box looks like the symbol for "vent" - an arrow...
  10. Please, Any Ideas About This Odd Electrical Problem?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    2000 bug, 2.0 , 90,000 miles and never had a serious problem. I tried to start it and the battery was stone dead. (twice in the past 3yrs the radio has stayed on after I pulled out the key and it ran the battery down. I assumed that was what happened. No big deal.) I charged the battery...
  11. Power outlets

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hey, all! My power outlets are not working in my 2000 NB. My assumption is that this is a blown fuse, but I can't figure out which one to check. The "guide" on the inside of the fuse box is all symbols and the owner's manual doesn't give and legend on how to interpret them. Can anyone tell...

  14. Fuse box on top of battery - outrageous dealer price

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hey, I'm new here and wanted to share my experience with my local "stealership." (Love that term!)

  16. Driver Side Headlight -- no bulbs work

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I recently purchased a gently used 2006 New Beetle for my daughter. After about a week I noticed the driver side DRL not working, so I bought 2 Sylvania XVs and replaced both sides. Immediately upon replacement, I tested the lights and the driver side high beam didn't work, but the new low beam...
  17. Fuse Box Translation Card

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have the 2003 Turbo S - after reading a thread on here about electrical things not working properly (for me it's the passenger window and lock that suddenly don't work), I thought I should check connections (they are OK) and fuses. BUT the Germans put a card with a bunch of symbols on it for...
