    I think you are on the right track. The drivers micro switch in the drivers door latch could be faulty. Verify by making sure your dome light goes out when your door is closed. Have the dome light switch on the door open position. Dome light should go out in aporx 30 seconds.

SOURCE: Brake light

Usually it means the handbrake is pulled up while you are driving the car. Have you noticed the car just isn't as zippy as it should be, or a hot smell from the rear of the car when exiting, or overly hot brake pads? Those are signs the brake is engaged.

If that is not the case then it could be a malfunction of the indicator. In either case it should be looked into as an engaged emergency brake can turn into a brake or rotor job if it's not addressed.

You could be low on coolant, or your coolant is running hotter than normal

SOURCE: ABS light and brake light on

there are 2 options, ABS module is most likely, I just had my ABS module remanufactured and it worked greate when i re-installed.

the second option is the wheel sensor could have a bad connection(may have been bumped when your bearing got looked at.

there are a few companies that repair ABS modules, i used modulemasters, they did a good job, i can not vouch for any of the other companies.

SOURCE: i own a 2000 vw beetle and i want to know what it

this light is to tell you that there is an oil pressure problem. either the pressure has dropped to a critical level, or the sending unit is defective (not uncommon). have a master oil pressure test performed - this is done by removing the pressure sensor, and threading in a special oil pressure gauge. if the oil pressure is ok on the test, replace the pressure sensor. if the oil pressure is low on the test, further diagnostics are required. good luck!

Just had my 2000 Beetle in for a general tune up - nothing wrong - and now the coolant light is beeping and flashing red. Is it safe to drive it back to the mechanic?


All VW engines need to have the cooling system bled of all air after refilling.its safe as long as you dont hear any stange noises and you carry a bottle of water after youve checked its full.

I have a 1999 Beetle and When I'm driving My dash beeps like 10 beeps in a row and the inside lights come on but nothing so up on the dash to tell me the problem


Ok, so are you saying NO LIGHTS come on to tell you what issue is on the dash? The beeping you hear is a low oil pressure warning beep. Its telling you that you are either low on oil or that the oil pump is not delivering oil properly to the motor (car is sensing low oil pressure but on these cars there is no oil pressure gauge on dash to look at). Check your oil level and make sure you are not low. Best time is in morning on flat surface start car and let run 5 minutes. Stop car, let sit 5 minutes and then pull dipstick and check level. Also make sure you are using the correct oil and viscosity for this motor. VW's require VW certified oil and a certain viscosity. You can go to www.mobil1.com to find the correct oil available in the states for your vehicle. Too thin or too thick a viscosity could cause similar issue. Otherwise please clarify the light comment as I have never heard of the lights coming on automatically after a beeping noise and I will research.

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

Oil Engine Light turned on and beeped after it reached 1200 rpm and then the clicking noise


have you done an oil change lately? If so did you doit yourself or was it done by a shop? I would check to see that the corret oil has been used fior your vehicle, I would also double check that the correct oil filter has been used. also on the open end of the oil filter that attaches to the car is a rubber " O " ring, I would remove the filter that is on there now and check to see that the O-ring from the old filter was not left behind.
