Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S
I topped off the coolant but the temp light still comes on and flashes, even from starting after a cold new england night. Could it be a sensor problem? I just dont want to seize my engine......help!
The coolant temp sensor is by far the most common fault.the only other thing it could be is the sensor in the coolant header tank.if you disconect the 2 pin sensor from where you top the coolant up and bridge out the 2 pins in the connector with a bit of wire.if this cures the fault you know its the coolant level sensor.if it persists and its straight from a cold start then the coolant temp sensor is the most likley cause.hope this helps.
