2006 Beetle fluid light

I just bought the car and now the blue fluid light comes on when I first start it. It goes off after the car has run a few minutes. I don't have the owner's manual so I don't know if the beetles do this or if this is a problem I should have looked at.
Thanks!

What is the blue light


if the car is a vw beetle the blue light is the coolant level. it's probably the same with most cars as well. check the fluid levels.

Beetle oil pressure light flashes when engine is cold


You did not say how cold it is but I am guessing that the viscosity is not correct for the temperature and the oil is too heavy for the job.. May be an oil change to the correct viscosity oil would help.

Blue coolant light comes back on and flashes? why


The light should be for a low level sensor in your coolant reservoir. Check your coolant level (when vehicle is cold), if fluid level is ok then the sensor is probably the culprit.

2003 Volkswagon beetle temp light is red. (Usually starts out blue and then goes out when the engine warms up.)


A red light indicator may signify a hotter temperature, but may not necessarily indicate an overheating condition. A couple things can lead to this condition - low fluid level (check the fluid resevoir), the wrong coolant being used previously, a weak or failing water pump, a plugged or partially plugged coolant radiator, a bad fan, or a bad thermostat. I'd personally check the coolant first, usually needs to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or so, then check to see if you have any leaks if the fluid level is depressed. Then allow the car to operate from a cold start in the drive while observing the performance under the hood and compare it to the dummy light.

Hope this helps.

Noise when car is started


Sounds like the starter stays "sticked"on... Check the starter relay or after the sound goes away touch the starter for heat. If its too hot it means it stays on working even when the engine is allready running...
