Hey guys/gals!

I picked up my first Beetle/Volkswagen ever earlier this month. Picked her up from the San Francisco are Craigslist. 2004 New Beetle Convertible, 2.0, 6spd A/T, 122,000 miles, stock everything. Hoping there are others in the area for help, meets, or just driving.

Although I am very happy with the car, I have noticed a couple issues. After searching through this forum prior to purchasing, and after, I still have at least one interesting situation. If no responses here, I may post in the troubleshooting forum/section.

Key fob trunk release and panic works 100% of the time. Lock works 50% of the time. The other 50% the lights flash, car doesn't actually lock, but alarm is armed. Unlock never works. I suspect the unlock button is somehow broken, but since the lock is questionable, I also think there may be some other problem else where.

Thanks guys for any help or advice. Excited to be a part of this community.

- Adrian

Welcome from Santa Cruz! As for the key fob, Delly sometimes likes to be Delly and doesnt respond to the key fob, I bought a new battery, but haven't changed it. She works all good now, might just be something as simple as that.

Hi there

I used to have a 2003 and that is the way mine would act when it needed a new battery, hope that's all it is for you!

I am new here too! I have recently become a VW owner again with the purchase of a 2013 convertible, see ya around!
