Hi folks,

My 2001 Beetle cut out recently. I eventually restarted it by using jump leads. It then cutout going along the highway while I was doing 70 mph. It won't restart. I got it towed home but it won't jump start this time. I got it towed to the VW dealer and they seem to be taking a long time to fix it. They have had it 3 weeks now! Any ideas what the probelm might be???

Beetle-juice!:( :(

Has the dealer checked relay 109? This is the power supply relay that has been a reliability nightmare for VW. Failed solder connections in the relay can cause power to be removed from the ECU which will cause the engine to immediately die.

I had the same thing several months ago and took a ride on a flatbed! Thank goodness no one ran over me during rush hr! It was VERY bizzare I actually ran out of gas - I didn't know it because my gas gauge showed 1/2 a tank. Faulty Fuel Gage Sender this was kind of costly ~200. Good Luck
