unhook the battery completely and see if it will start after a couple of days. if it does you probably have a wire stripped and grounded out. all you need to do is install a power disconect key in the car, and you wont have any more problems.

I've never heard of it being ECM, although it could be.

Have you watched to see if the brake lights are working properly? I've had two brake light switch failures in 65 years of New Beetle ownership, and the first indication is it will not shift out of Park with the brake pedal depressed.

Sounds like the timing is getting out of sync. Check the belt for worn teeth or loose ness.

You will have to call up an Audi dealership and give them the serial number and your information on the vehicle. There are steps in the manual on how to enter the 4 digit code. It will happen anytime there is a break in the power to the radio.

Just a suggestion but my guess would be the engine control module. Usually when they heat up, the engine shuts down and when they cool off it works again, until it heats up again, then poof. I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes.

computer has glich ???the control function for the key also opens the windows and roof if fitted ,and something is activating this now their is most likely a sensor that recieves the signal from the key and most likely cause is this sensor.but where it is in the vehicle i havent a clue if you activate this then listen for the relay thats being operated to perform these functions then just remove it and see if windows still open,if they do then problem solved but if they dont then take vehicle to dealers who will have appropiate software.

it will be somewhere near drivers seat but europeon models have a different connector under the bonnet.its the diagnostics connection but forget about connecting it up as machine and software is expensive,leave this to dealer only but yes you should be able to read fault codes but that is about all if your lucky

big problems ,check fuse in panel on dash in the side where door opens ,the fuse concerned is in the middle row about a third of the way down and its a 15 amp ,if its blown change it if it blows again its a dealer only job as the software involved is difficult,the computer for this car is under the passenger floor and if water gets in which it often does as its in a bad situation then expect an expensive repair.If water has got in rectfiy the leak and try to move computer as far upwards as you can on the length of the loom .and let it dry out.then spray the connection block with wd 40 to hopefully stop any corrosion of the terminals from spreading or getting worse.
