Having problems with your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle ?
1998 Beetle 2.0
\015 My car's throttle is accellerating as soon as I turn on the car and the car dies. the thing that is confusing to me is that this happened after I left my lights on all night and the battery drained. I jumped my car and it started reving vreal hard and the car dies right away I also disconnected the throttle control module harness and I can start my can and drive without that poblem. I assume this is bad; as soon as I hook up the throttle module harness back to the throttle body the car can not start. I also metered out the throttle harness and I have no voltage or resistance across the harness. Do you think I have to replace the whole throttle body deal?\015\012\015\012Alright been letting idle for a while to relearn...turned off car and restart with throttle harness in place. No luck, but here is something else...When the car is nott start but on battery, I hear the throttle moving in the throttle body and the gas pedal is going down on its own. The strange thing with that is the 98 beetle 2.0 does not have an electronic gas pedal \015\012\015\012Any THoughts?\015
If throttle pedal actually moves and throttle goes up and down without touching it something is making the cruise control engage when it shouldnt remove cruise control cable from throttle valve and see if that doesnt fix it if so will maybe need a new cruise modual
