Can't drive with top down and coolants light is on

2004 VW New Beetle. I put the top down and every time i hit the gas pedal a noice buzzes. It's constant. I don't know what to do! I can't drive with the top down.
the coolant light came on and i don't know how to check the levels and especially put water or anything else in it. I don't have an owners manual yet. i just bought it off the lot. Are these problems expected from this years model?

2006 vw bug. Gas turbo 2.0,convert. I have a radiator overheating. Dont see any leaks on the engine. Just an overflow from the overflow bottle onto the garage floor after shut down that turns on the...

Change the radiator cap. The spring on yours is getting week. The reason it does it when you shut it off and doesnt do it when its running is cause the water pump sucks the coolant out of the radiator while it is pumping so there is not much pressure on it but when you shut car off the coolant stops curculating and egine heat is not transfered coolant exspands and pushes on the cap. If your spring in the cap is getting week then it pushes it up letting the coolant pass by to your overflow tank.
