I had a problem with mine that turned out to be the ground on the actual taillight. I ended up running a ground wire through the opening in the back of the taillight and attaching it to one of the nuts and bolts that hold it in place. Most problems on Beetles can be traced to either bad wiring or inproper grounding.
