if there is no noticable leaks might be head gasket. Check to see if a lot of vapour comming from exaust. You may have to get a pressure test on cooling system.

Since a lightning bolt is electrical, I would have to take a guess that you have an electrical problem.

Warning lights on dashboard


Had a similar problem on older BMW. The ABS/ASC sensor in the wheel hub is apperntly prone to this if something has been changed like brake, shocks etc or got some dirt in it. The amber light could indicate a loose wire connection on the brake system or perhaps a damaged elec cable. can only be reset with diagnostic computer or special tool.

Warning Lights Stay on.


I think your alternator went bad,or the belt broke or the battery died, All three of these are connected together.
Any thing is possible lightning could have something to do with it,I doubt it.

Oil light and brake lights blinks on and off and abs light is on


Just a idea. If the car is running at idle and the oil light blinks , it usually from low oil pressure. At a idle your seeing the light respond to the revolutions of the engine. ! thing to try is to replace the oil pressure switch on the engine block. And #2, Most causes in a VW is that the vehicle overheated at one time and weekend the oil pump,or massive amount of miles.
