VOLKSWAGON 2.0

1999 Volkswagen Beetle • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 98,000 miles

I have a 1999 volkswagon beetle 2.0, I bought from my sister, at the time of purshase I had to jumb the car off because it had been siting for about two weeks. I drove the car home, about 10 miles, turned the engine off and tried to restart but the battery was dragging. I jumbed off again and drove the car everyday for about two weeks with no problems at all, last night I came home from work parked the car, set the alarm and this morning the car would not turn over. When the egnition switch is on I have dash lights and horn blows, I tried jumbing the car off and it still would not turn the engine over. I tried again, this time leaving the cables on for a lenght of time with the same result. Should I buy a new battery, or is there a fuse that could have blown to stop the car from turning over. Remember this car has been running perfectly, its not a piece of junk and the check engine light is not on. The alarm works it just happened like over night. PLEASE HELP ME

Battery fine one day and dead the next, is usually due to a drain. A light or accessory
staying on, or even the alternator can cause a drain if it defective internally.
