99 Beetle will not try to turn over (no clicking) and headlights, dash lights, and accessories stay on with key switch in off position and key out. Battery was weak so I disconnected it and charged it to 100%. Reconnected it and now this. I have it parked in a bad spot and would like to get it going soon.
We have never had a Beetle before, here is our history with it so far. Recently bought this as a project for me and my sons. Prior to this it cranked up every time with a hot battery. When we first got it we had to open all doors then crank it to shut off the alarm. Havent had to do it since. Car would crank easy but ran hot after a short time. Thermostat neck cracked and I think the thermostat has been removed. Might be a water pump issue from what I have read here. I don't have an owners manual or shop manual for it so everything I've discovered so far has come from here and the web. Any help is greatly appreciated.
