  1. Multiple Warning Lights and No Starting After New Brakes

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Can anyone help? I have a 2004 New Beetle 1.8 Turbo S. Today I replaced the front brake rotors and pads, cleaning the callipers and associated hardware. There were no issues replacing the parts until I tried to start the car. Now it won’t even turn over and I have multiple warning...

    Technical Modifications
    HI I want to replace the gauges in my 2003 cab with a screen. Don't ask me why! it's just a hobby, and I want to try and do something like the cool digital screens that are now popping up in Audi and Mercedes etc. I realise this will open me up to many comments of "why would you do this" -...

    1.9 Liter TDI
    I have 149K on my 1999 Beetle TDI. I love the car but it's quirky. I had my oil changed at a local Jiffy Lube. In the process the plastic filler tube broke so I got a new one at the dealer and Jiffy Lube installed it. I noticed when the engine was cold and I started the car the oil light...
  8. Warning Lights Tower of Babel

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Three lights just came up, but my manual is in Spanish and I'm having some trouble figuring out what they mean: ABS Anti Skid >>> Electric Immobilizer <<< The ABS and Anti Skid I can figure out, but what in heck is an "Electric Immobilizer"? (looks like a NB with a key in the wheels) :confused:
