Hey folks -

Drove my car to work this morning, no problems. Tried to grab lunch across town, but I couldn't start my 2001 Beetle. Turning the key to 'on' gives me a blinking 'BRAKE' light, and my fuel gauge doesn't move like it usually does. Trying to turn the key for ignition doesn't really do anything.

Here's a video (youtube, 0:38 seconds), if it helps.

Any ideas? Thanks!

I would start with it being a battery issue. My Ford Expedition did the same thing and was the battery. Changed it and everything was back to normal.

First i would test the battery for voltage...A simple multi-meter will do the job..GL...KP..
