Hi guys
Just bought my 2000 plate 2.0 on the weekend.
I have a constant ESP signal on. As I also have no working cigarette lighters and a few other lighting issues I wonder if that's an electrics issue or that the ESP is genuinely not working? I press the button but no response.
Secondly, I need to put water in the engine, but the lid to the coolant reservoir is different to my last Beetle and has no obvious place to grip and turn??
If anyone can help me with either of these issues I'd be grateful.

Sounds like three issues.

First thing I'd check would be the fuses. I'm guessing the cigarette lighter sockets not working is a blown fuse.

As for the "ESP signal", I'd have the thing scanned with a VAG scanner to see what error codes might be present.

And finally, I have no idea about the lid on the coolant reservoir. Our '05 has an obvious handle like thing on top of the molded lid.

coolant

I think you should have the round ball looking thingy reservoir with a blue cap. Twist CCW and add distilled water if it need's it or mixed 50/50 water/coolant. Good luck man and welcome to new beetle.org....... :)
