Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
When you drive it and after it warmsup the oil light beeps and begins to flash continuously
Have you checked the oil level? Any lack of power when light comes on? Any smoke?

SOURCE: Oil light flashing & beeping
This usually indicates that the oil pressure is low, but you need to get it checked out whether it's just a pressure sensor fault or connection issue, or it actually has got low oil pressure. The last one is the most concerning, because it could be causing internal damage if there is not enough oil pressure. Hopefully with a relatively late model car it will just be a sensor issue, but I would get it checked out ASAP, and preferably not use the car in the meantime.
Hope this helps, Mark.

Yes it is related, don't drive it. First thing you should do is install a new oil filter even if it isn't time for an oil change.

fan relay is under the frame on the left by the fans. but most likely the fans themselves have gone bad check the fuse panel on top of the battery see if it is burned or blown fuse this is caused by the fans going from stop to high speed to many times. you will flat 40 or 50 amp flat blade fuse and both fans sorry for bad news

Coolant is low enough to trigger the sensor. There's a pressure leak somewhere in the system. The sensor is faulty.
