Question about Volkswagen New Beetle

1 Answer

Even though the engine is not cold, the blue light keeps blinking

Even though the engine is not cold, the blue light on the dash keeps blinking on and off. It comes on even after driving for 30 - 40 miles, so I know the engine can't be cold still.

You need to change the oil heat sensor. it's fairly simple. the sensor is located just below your air cleaner at about the 10 o'clock position. it sits right in the middle of the coolant hose so make sure that your car is not hot or warmed up. just pop the plastic clip off and take the sensor out and put the new one in. make sure that you dont leave the o-ring in there you should replace it as well. the o-ring is a factory part & costs about 10.00 and the sensor you can buy at kragen or other auto stores for about 12.00. it isn't expensive at all. I had the same problem. i changed the sensor and it stopped.

one more thing. you should get the sensor that is green. it's better than the black one that is probably in your car right now. Good luck.....

What causes the dash light in a 1994ls 400 lexus to blink off and on


Which dash lights blink, do they blink with engine running or just ignition on. First thing to check are battery condition, is it able to supply required volts and current if not sure have it tested by your local auto shop. Make sure all connections at battery posts are clen and TIGHT, I emphasize tight many people overlook this simple thing and begin chasing their tails. Hope this helps you.

What does it mean when the ac button lights are blinking the ac buttons-ac and circulating button lights blink continuously and you cannot shut them off at all this just began after the car wouldnt...


it is needing to be calibrated because of dead battery.i cant remember for sure but i think you had to push rear wiper and recirc buttons at the same time and hold them down a couple of seconds. engine has to be running and at normal operating temp. lights will flash and vents will change heat to cold etc. if it fails any test the lights will just keep blinking untill repaired and recalibrated.

If your gas lines were froze then there is obviously water in your fuel system which even once thawed could prevent your car from starting and may not run good if it does. With that being said it obviously has to be cold for your gas lines to freeze and cold weather is ******* your battery especially if it sits for a while. Turn on your headlights and see if they are working good as well as your dome light and radio. If they are not working good or at all charge the battery with a battery charger, even though you have tried to jump it. Your car will have a fairly small battery and the smaller the cold cranking amps your battery is rated for the worse it will be in cold weather, possibly even not turning your engine over. If you do all this and it does not work it may be your starter but my money is on the battery.
