Check the fuses. The constant power supply to the clock is gone. The clock and radio use a constant power supply in order to keep time and remember radio presets, when the ignition is turned on it takes over so if the memory fuse is blown this is exactly what happens.I hope this helps, take care. If you have any more questions about this vehicle or just want to say hi! Use testimonial Thanks

I would generally advise to get the OBD checked and that should be able to reset the electronics, if your talking about the ECU that may need further checks but go with the OBD first

Dense white smoke often indicates coolant in the exhaust. Check for water in the crankcase by inspecting oil on dipstick. Milky coloring indicates water. Check the coolant reservoir, or under radiator cap (wait until engine is cooled down!), for oil in cooling system. If you see evidence of either water in oil or oil in coolant, you may have a blown head gasket, or a cracked cylinder head or block.

Get the starter motor checked first it's normal for starters to play up when they get hot from the heat of the engine l presume you've checked the battery

Were the oil and coolant systems flushed out when the gasket was changed? Was the cylinder head 'skimmed' before it was refitted? If this has been done there is a bigger problem somewhere else in the engine.
A more serious cause can be a crack in the cylinder head or the engine block.
Get a good mechanic to check the whole engine over as a crack is an expensive repair. Some cases involve a replacement engine.

Windscreen wipers on Amarok VW are not working but the windscreen wash jets are. I've been told that it's probably a fuse but there is no indication in the manual which one it is. Can you please advise?

Yes, when you take your key out of the ignition switch the fuel pump will shut off. Which should be the only time you would want it to. Now if your fuel pump is not running with the ignition on then look for a blown fuse.

First see if you have spark ,the check the fuel pump fuse then see if the pump ruining ,all the best.

I believe you would have to put the car stereo in AUX mode for the iPod to work. There should be a button somewhere (on your car stereo) to get into auxiliary mode.
Make sure the volume on the iPod is turned up.

That is the only the part number for the cylinder head. However, the part is for a 1.8 litre petrol engine.

From J.C. Moritz:

"OURCE:VW 2000 New Beetle door sensor/car alarm goes off when doors open.
I found a thread - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461that details the repair of the soldering on the key lock door module. Our 2000 new beetle had the same issue. Also sometimes it refused to start. Soldering pins fixed it all.

Also see http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107 for releasing window from track, And door handle from inner panel.

I ripped the door apart and re-solderd the pins. I only had one pin with cracked solder but two others looked thin so I did them while I was in there. It's about a four or five hour project if you have all the tools. (8mm triple square also called an 8mm internal was the hardest to find - Also needed Torx T8 T10 T15 and T30 plus Philips Screw Driver. )
Project is difficult but not too bad for the mechanically inclined. A 7 on a scale of 10.
Since re-soldering pins - no more issues! My guess is that a VW dealer would get $200 for a new moduel plus 5 hours of service time for this gig - easily a $500 to $1000 bill. My cost - several new tools - about $25.00."
