Try another key , if it does the same with all keys it will need to be towed to dealer to have them re-coded. but that is what the light is saying that the computer doesn't recognize that key as it's own and thinks it is being stolen. hopefully it is just the one key and another one will let it work and save a tow bill.

My 2001 VW Beetle started losing speed when I go up a hill, and when I try to excellerate, it bogs down worse and the check engine light flashes off and on.


you sound like your catylitic converter is trying to stop up. When this happens check and have someone race the engine and fill and see if you have a good flow of exhaust coming out of your tail pipe and see if it is real hot .A good way is if it happens at night look at yourn converter and see if its red from the converter to the engine thats a sure sign thats your converter is stopped up.If its not then if the light stays on go to an advance store or some other place and they wont charge you to check and tell you what the obd 2 code is and post that back and let me know what the code is .Hope This Helps

Blue light started flashing what is wrong


Hi, has the weather just turned colder? The Beetle has a blue warning light to tell you that the engine temperature is low. Meaning drive the car at lower speeds/revs until it's warmed up and the light go's out. Hope that helps, Matt.

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

Oil pressure light is blinking.


It's very possible a coincidence and that the flashing oil light is the oil pressure switch. I'd check it out immediately to make sure there's sufficient oil flowing through the engine. Merely jump starting the car shouldn't have knocked anything loose so to be on the safe side, assume there's an oil pressure issue. You were right to not use the car in the interim.

There's a flashing light on my dashboard, it's an orange light outline of my Beetle with a key in it. Please can you tell me what this means?


That symbol stands for Electronic Immobilizer. Here's a summary of what the manual has on it... When the ignition is switched on, an automatic key data test takes place. The data test is confirmed when the warning light illuminates and then will turn off after approx 2 seconds. However, if a non-authorized key is used, the warning light will blink continuously and it says the engine will not start.
