Got my new vag-com HEX2 scanner and here are the results of my first run. I cleared everything after the first run because who knows how long those have been sitting there plus I did quite a bit of work on the convertible top and window motors and door lock actuators. I wanted to have a baseline to work with. I saved both first and second run log files as well. The second run came back clean with the exception of the airbag code.

@billymade i figured you would like this as well.

No problems with the car at all except the passenger window doesn’t go up and down right but I already found the problem and have the new parts for it, just haven’t fixed it yet.

I didn’t paste the 2nd scan because I thought it would be too redundant. No codes came back except for the airbag low voltage one.

Thank you for that. I was reading that earlier. It's the only module that code pops up in so that makes me tend to think it's not the battery and more local to the airbag connectors.

That would make sense; connectivity and wires, terminal ends, are classic issues related to the airbag/srs system. A close visual inspection is recommended; as damaged wires, under the seat, ripped out terminals, other physical damage, are typical, as well.

Here is a video, discussing airbag issues and the use, of a product, to increase connectivity and poor contacts:


Have you had any charging issues lately(?); if you have, you might go down to a auto parts store and have the whole charging system tested, see if everything is in spec, working as it should. A charging system problem, can absolutely wreck havoc on theses cars and throw a TON, of odd trouble codes, as all the computers freak out, as they cannot function as they should with low voltage.

Makes sense. No issues whatsoever with anything on the car. Starts right up every time. I think we really got lucky with this one!

I notice that at the end of the scan your battery voltage is listed as 12.2v, that is a little low you should be seeing 12.4-12.8. Typically batteries fail during the summer and you find out about it the first time the outside temperature drops below freezing when your car won’t start.

A low battery can also cause an airbag code. Have you cleared or tried to clear the low voltage airbag code?

Yup, and that's expected, the battery is 3 years old and we're in Arizona. Thanks for pointing that out.

The car was in accessory mode for quite a while to get that test run because my laptop conveniently had to go through updates and vcdc decided to update so that may have also caused the minor voltage drop.

I cleared everything after the first run and the airbag low voltage code was the only one that came back.

No.

We'll be getting a new battery soon. I read that 12.2v is about a half charge.

Update @Thejarhead and @billymade I ran the check a 3rd time after it had been driven for a while and the battery voltage came in at 12.4v start/end AND the airbag code was gone. So that looks like it can be chalked up to battery voltage. But the radio antenna code came back. I'm not having any trouble with the radio plus that's a low priority for me anyway so who knows what that could be. I read that the connection is in the windshield top right corner so I may look at it one day.

For the battery voltage coming in at 12.4v; was that, with the engine running or turned off?

For the remaining trouble code; that came back, being the antenna, this has been a common issue.


There is a antanne test you can perform; called "FERN", using the buttons on the stock vw head units. You might try it and see, what the results are. If it fails, you might check for the antenna connection; being plugged in and then, the windshield couldn be a problem.


A common problem, we see here; the original windshields on the New Beetle Convertibles, had the antenna actually in the windshield and non oem, aftermarket versions many replacements, do not. So, you might look for the logo/part #; on the windshield and look if it seems, to be the original one or a replacement.

I saw that test, I haven't run it yet. The thing is, I don't have any issues pulling in any FM stations. Haven't tried AM but we don't need those. Not sure if the windshield is stock, I'll have to check

I had a bad powered stock antenna on my Turbo S (hard top/sedan: non convertible); in that case, AM reception was bad, local FM stations were functional but when replaced, the AM stations were restored and more FM stations were available, at better power/sound.

Well, more testing; would be required, to try to troubleshoot the issue, if you want to resolve the trouble code. First, I would clear the codes and see, if any come back (if someone removed the radio/head unit without disconnecting the battery; it can throw a trouble code like this). If the code comes back; then, it is a hard fault and more troubleshooting is required and we can discuss, testing things.

Did you identify, if the windshield; was the original VW or a replacement?

No I haven't checked the windshield yet, I forgot about that. It's not worth looking into any further since I have no issues with the radio and we hardly use it anyway. But next time I have to pull the trim piece off to do something with the top or the visor, I'll take a look at the connection there.

Well, first, just go ahead and clear the trouble codes, you can see, what comes back. You have more then one code; so, it would be good, to see if the codes were just part of prior history issues, that are now not relevant or they are currently a unresolved problem. Then, you can decide; what on the list needs attention and you can work your way down, to figure out, what to troubleshoot, test and ultimately repair. Not every trouble code, is something that is technically "wrong"; figuring out the meaning and what is behind each code, takes time, experience using VCDS and there is a learning curve. VCDS is a great system and the trouble codes; can be very helpful and at times, warn you about issues, you are not aware of and save you allot of money, before things can result in catastrophic failures. If you are new to VCDS; I highly recommend joining the forums, check out their youtube channel and download the users manual. VCDS, has deep capabilities; most of us, are just scratching the surface with what it can do! :)
