Have you checked all of the fuses? Or relays? I had the same issue and it was the ignition switch going bad. Hey guys, I've been googling for an answer to the same question. Before I started googling, I checked all my fuses and all my relays. I even read the relays out. I suspected that it had to be something in my steering colum because one day my turn signals did not work. I turned off the car and then turned it on right away AND the problem went away. Weird. Now the headlights, turn signals, wipers, and a/c unit don't turn on. So I agree that it has to be the Ignition switch. I'll change mine out next weekend and update you for sure. Thanks for asking the question and big thanks for the second guy that answered it! I was having this issue, too. I love my beetle to death and, unfortunately, I think that mine is getting about to that point. The dealership told me that the problem was with the ignition switch. $500.00 later, brand new switch and everything was working perfectly (except for my window, but who really needs a window that rolls up and down anyway). It has been a month and a half since and last night... no more lights, no more signals and no more wipers. I don't know if your luck might be better than mine, but you might want to investigate other issues before choosing to purchase a new ignition switch and pay for labor. Best of luck, I'm taking mine in later today. Same thing just happened to me. I can not get my headlights, wipers, turn signals, or my a/c blower to work. I got the oil changed and the next day they all stopped working. I thought they were somehow related...but I guess not. Anymore answers??

Start by checking your fuses. Then bulbs. Then switches in that order.

The multifunction switch attaches to the steering column. It contains the turn signals, wipers, headlights, etc....

It is important to have the right windshield wipers on a car. A 2000 Volkswagen Beetle has 21 inch long windshield wipers.
