72 VW Convertible Beetle- G LIght Not turning on.

Asked by Aug 19, 2019 at 01:43 PM about the 1972 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 72 Beetle G light intermittently won't turn on when turning the key.   
Coincidentally, the car won't start either.    If I bypass the ignition (battery to red
wire to starter)  it will turn over.   Most of the time... other times... it decides it
doesn't like me.     Any ideas?
