Hi All,

I have had my VW Beetle since it was new in 2005.

It has developed a strange problem.

It is draining the battery and won't start. When I try to crank it, nothing happens, I turn the key to the off position, but the interior door lights start flashing and I hear what sounds like a rapid clicking sound somewhere.

The battery is only a year old and my husband put a charger on it, got to crank and it ran fine for about three days and now the battery is dead again.

He charged the battery again this morning and now it starts fine.

I am at a loss as to what could be causing these strange behaviors.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

Bad ignition switches are pretty common. You could be hearing a relay that is toggling due to a sticking or poor contact in the switch.
