I have a 2008 beetle convertable 2.5l engine. I ran out of gas and after refueling it won't restart. Any suggestions is there a reset button I don't know about. I've had my mechanic look at it twice and he can't figure it out? Thanks in advance

Open and close the drivers door about 5 time. Wait about 30 seconds between opening it. This "should" cause the fuel pump to prime.

If not, get a can of starting fluid, 2 second burst into the air filter box and see if the engine starts and dies.

It is possible you thought the car was out of gas when the fuel pump actually failed as well.
