My temparature light is on and flashing. . .what


Drive it as little as possible until fixed!!!! It means it is probably getting to hot. You may be low on coolant, or you have a leak of coolant. Or your water pump could be going bad. If you drive it while it is to hot the results could be catostrophic.

check to see if your brake lights are working.usually the stop light switch fails and is the cause.but before buying a new one check the stop light fuse.its a common problem with a simple fix.hope this helps.

Vw golf est dashboard coil or spring shaped


thats the heater coil symbol for the diesel engines.

I have a 2000 Golf TDI and while driving to work this morn. the glow plug symbol started flashing and when I pressed the gas pedal it would not go or engine would not rev up. The engine was still running...


your car went in to limp mode...it sounds like you have got a intermitant fault with the throttle pedal.get the fault read to confirm.you can drive it but it may reoccur...you are doing no damage
