SOURCE: removal of dashboard assembly for 2002 volkswagen beetle

I would strongly recomend you dont tackle this job.They are NASTY.Even qualified VW techs would shy away from it.Once the dash is out the support bar and the heaterbox needs to be removed and they are a pain.Sorry i know its no help but its sound advice .Cheers

SOURCE: car will start but shuts

I have a 2004 vw Beetle 2 L engine that had the same problem.

After taking it to two mechanics finally diagnosed you need to start with replacing the Air Flow Meter. Fortunately for me this was the right fix.

It is an expensive part ($150-$200) that can not be returned.

You can also try a junk yard, you pull it and they run $40-$75.
That is what i did and it worked.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.

With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.

Beetle starts and then dies within seconds?


It could be anything. I think what you're refering to is if the ignition switch is still good.

Engine starts and runs for 2 seconds then dies. I have tried both keys with same results. There are no warning lights and no codes.


Had same concern with my 2002 Beetle Turbo S on 9/11/2011. Tried both keys too.If problem started all of the sudden and no other symptoms tow car to dealer with both keys and have them both programmed. For some ungodly reason it is a common problem for these keys to lose program and cause immobilizer system to engage because security system thinks car is being stolen so it will start and die in 1-2 seconds. Another option is you can search for the free step by step software online to program them from your laptop but you must have an OBD connector that connects to vehicle onboard diagnostic connector and must be a USB port on other end to connect to laptop. Don't know where you could buy this cable, I lucked up and had a friend that owns a repair shop who let me borrow the one that connects to his OBD scanner. As soon as they were programmed vehicle started immediately.

What would cause the 03 beetle to start fine and then die immediately? There is gas in the car, and the car was driven into the garage the night before without any problems. Help!


The bproblem ussually is there isnt enough fuel pressure try fuel filter first then if that does not cure it you will have to get new fuel pump.

2000 beetle will die at random times, and will not start for about 15 minutes!


this can be caused by a bad fuel filter or dirty injectors. try a bottle of fuel injector or fuel system cleaner in a tank of gas. i suggest lucas products which can be found at any parts store.
