1999 VW Beetle - door ajar sensor - dings while I ...
Sorry, but I don't think there is a quick, easy fix. I'm not sure if there is a fuse for it and if it is a 'shared' fuse. A one that is connected to other features such as the central locking.
It sounds like the switch for the door latch is faulty.
Unfortunately, it is built into the door latch mechanism so your going to have to strip down the entire door, remove the mechanism and strip that down as well.
It is a time consuming, pain in the *** job! But it is one you can do yourself. Be prepared for it to take you a whole day and cost you the skin from your knuckles.
You might be better off paying someone else to replace the mechanism.

1999 VW bug wont start-suspect anti theft system.
remove the key from the ignition and press the UNLOCK. its saying the alarm was triggered, eg if door was opened without first using the unlock on the remote. maybe when alarm was armed not all doors were fully closed. or you just reconnected the battery so the door was open without you ever pressing the unlock on the remote(which could be called DISARM the alarm)

My 1999 Volkswagon beetle won't start and i
You say you renewed or was the starter a second hand one because you say when you turn it over you hear a clicking noise , that's the solanoid on the starter motor where it not turning the starter over , a little check to do is put the car in 4 gear handbrake off and push it a bit until you hear the engine turn and then try and start it if still the same check and replace the starter as I don't know if yours is new or second hand

1999 VW starts then dies
the idler is blocked in the intake, or the idle controller has failed, if you take the air pipe off the intake there is a butterfly and on the side you will see a hole, on the side you will see a device, now some time you can just spray some carb cleaner in there and give it a good flush out. also spray the butterfly and clean this up. open with the cable and do the same. you may fined that the air filter needs replacing so would do this at the same time. leave for 10 min and then start engine don't worry about it coffing etc its just the cleaner being burnt off in the engine give it a few good revs. then let it idle for 5 min, when you have done that then fit the pipes back on. run engine it should be fine now, if not repeat.

My 1999 Voltswagon Beetle GLS keeps over heating.
I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. This car has often got more issues than nothing.On the side of the cylinder head, drivers
side, is a small metal nipple. They like to clog with rust and scale and
can come and go with overheating. This nipple has a hose attached that
is the bleed hose. That is the first thing I would look at based on your
repairs.The other possibility would be the water
pump impeller is slipping. The OE water pump and a lot of after market
ones use a plastic impeller(fan). These will slip at times. To prove
this, remove the thermostat and use a mirror to look at it. Also use
your finger to try to turn the impeller. If its cracked, or turns, it is
bad. I have seen brand new ones do this after 50 miles. I only use
metal impeller pumps. Look at it. That would also cause a no flow
If it only overheats at idle, then few more details has to be investigated.
Kindly check and get back to me if problem persists.
Kindly accept my solution so that i could get the credit for my time.
Thanks and Regards
