There are several things that can cause this. First look at the coolant temp sensor on the driver's side of the engine block. it will be held in the top of the black plastic coolant flange by a plastic "c" clip. There will be a four wire connector plugged into it. If the sensor is black, replace it with a new green one. Any VW dealership will now exactly what you need and it costs about $40. If that doesn't fix it you could have a bad thermostat.

It is supposed to be that way,to let you know that your lights are on automatically,they go out when you are driving at night. They're a safety feature that was introduced back in 1995.It also can be overridden in the dash lights.

Dash lights burned out


Make sure that you didn't inadvertently turned the dash light off. There is a dimmer dial on the left side of the steering column. If that's ok, then check for blown fuse.

At hot tempreture when fan cuts in after cooling it then does not turn of


That is the symptom of a stuck relay. There is a sensor that turns the relay on, but most likely is the relay. This can be tested by first locating the relay and the next time this happens tap lightly on this relay if it is stuck it will most likely free up and shut the fan off.

1996 Firebird won't start but all dash & interior lights work.


It takes X amount of volts to click the starter, if the contacts are corroded, it won't click, but it will run the lights. I would check the battery terminals for corrosion, clean them off with a wire brush, check the water in the battery, check the electrolytes with one of them floaty ball things. They work great. Then see what happens. If you have a volt meter, check the battery, you need 12+ volts to start. Hope this helps.

Just bought a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. Sensor Light on drivers side is on entire time car is off, is this a problem?


Yes... it's a problem. There should be NO dash (instrument panel) lights when the key is out of the ignition and all doors are closed. Whichever 'sensor light' you're talking about, it can discharge the battery over night. This issue may still be under warranty.. Take it in for diagnosis/repair.
