Pull out on the headlight switch to turn on the fog lights.
Check the brake light switch. This can cause the brake lights to go out. There have been a couple of recalls on the 2001 for this exact problem. Contact your local VW dealer and have the switch replaced.
If this question isn't allready answered, I have a 2001 VW Beetle, there might be a dial type switch on the left of the dash for the lights, turn lights on and pull switch out to turn on fog lights.
Pull out on the light switch when you have turned it to the right to turn on the lights.
a crappy car. my 99 beetle has the same problem. brake light switch new, bulbs and fuses new. brake lights just work whenever the heck they want. this is one of the many reasons my car has a for sale sign in the window. good luck.
On the dash to the right of the steering wheel. Pull out for lights.
IT'S WHERE YOUR HEADLIGHT SWITCH IS PULL OUT ON IT PUSH ON IT TO TURN OFF
The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.
Switch on brake pedal needs tightened replaced, or switch for lights needs tightened or replaced.
could be bad wiring
Pull out slightly on the headlight switch. If the fog lights do not respond you need to replace the switch.
no, the switch in the steering column is bad and needs replaced.
Defective switch, switch not adjusted, blown fuse
it is part of the hazzard light switch on the dash under the raido
the turn signal lever, pull it towards you, that changes the lights from lo to high
Shorted wire to ground or failed brake switch.
On my 2003 - you pull the headlight switch. Took me quite a while to figure out.
First check the fuse, then check the bulbs, then check the switch.
the brake switch at the pedal is stuck or out of adjustment.
Did you check the fuse?
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.
There is probably a reverse light switch on the transaxle that is bad or unplugged
Had the same thing happen on a '73 SB. It turned out (after much cussing) to be the ignition switch. Try replacing the switch with an OEM and "see" what happens!
Had the same problem with mine. The dealership told me it was the backup light switch. I had the same problem, as do 99% of VW beetle owners. There was a recall on the Brake Light Switch. Call your dealer and they should change it for free. I did. It worked for a bit, but now i think one of my brake lights is out again.
