BATTERY DEAD, THEY SAY CAUSE IS BAD

2002 Volkswagen Beetle

Electrical problem
2002 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 39000 miles

Is there a warning light in the instrument cluster which warns of this condition?

A " battery not charging" light or something?

It refused to start. Out of the blue and all of a sudden.

What gives?

Do I have a case to ask VW of America for reimbursement?

Thanks!

Reimburstment for what? If the alt isnt charging the " idiot" ligh will come on. But if you are getting at the alt drawing the battery dead, it can do that and still charge normally.
