Sorry to hear that, those setting are configured specially for each market by the dealer ship. As the prior answer, check your manual for more info if no solution, get to your local VW/Audi service department.

My car continues to try to run hot

Did you flush the system or merely change parts? If the radiator or the engine block are very dirty, there will be overheating. Also, if the thermometer is reading hot on the dash board it may be a false reading from the temperature thermometer on the radiator which, if that is the case, should be replaced.

How do I set the clock to regular time not army time

When you're car is off, press both the hour and minute buttons at the same time. Hold them until the clock switches from 24 hour to 12 hour. By doing this with the engine off, you keep the temperature reading in Farenheit.

Thermometer won't work in my 2000 vw beetle after a dead battery

Most vw dealers will "reset" your thermometer for free. Just take it to them and tell them what heppened... They shouldnt charge you anything for it.

My 1996 Pontiac Grand Am reads that the engine overheats about 10 minutes after starting it from cold up to 260 degrees. What can I do from here?

The first thing to do is to make sure the radiator is full of coolant.If it's not, top it up and let the car run with the cap on loosely to remove air from the system and check for leaks. If it's full get a candy thermometer and double check the temp in the rad. It should read the same as your guage. If not change the temp sensor for the guage.also check to make sure that the fans kick in at about 190 degrees or a little more. If they don't there is a problem in the circuit, usually a sensor but double check to see if any if the wiring has been disconnected. If the fans come on, while you are checking the temp with the thermometer loking closely in the rad to see if the coolant is flowing. If you don't see movement then you need a new thermostat. That should be in the housing where the top rad hose comes out of the engine. Replace the gasket when you do it. Hope this helps.

Thermometer not reading correctly

I would guess the outside thermometer has lost its calibration.
Does it seem consistently 5, 10 or 20 degrees off all the time?
Let me know.

High idle on my 1999 Saturn SL1. The mechanical screw on the idle cam is at its minimum. The car idles at 13-1500 rpms .

Clean the Idle Air Control Valve. It's on the throttle body below the Throttle Position Sensor. Worked for me! Good luck.
