I have a 2000 VW Beetle, the blue temperature light is on all the time, it is kangerooing with no acceleration when cold, nothing shows up on the code reader any ideas Laura

There are probably two coolant temp sensors--one for the dash display and one for the ECU to do fuel trim. Unlikely that both have failed at same time, but possible. First, insure coolant thermostat is not stuck open preventing normal warm up, then test or replace coolant temp sensor for the ECU.

Error code po0117. Vw beetle

16501/P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too Low Possible Symptoms
  • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
  • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
  • RPM at idle is irregular.
  • With all engine temperatures seldom idle rpm will vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
  • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
  • Bad acceleration during warming up.
    • Diesel: an indication is extreme long time burning time of the glow indication light.
Possible Causes
  • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
  • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check wiring and connections
  • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
Special Notes
  • In MY 1995-2002 (?) in Europe at VW-cars the G2/G62 had the bad reputation of breaking down often. The default G2/G62 is black and all replacements are green.

2001 VW Beetle TDI. Why does my LCD,outside temp. display,above the rearview mirror, show four dashes all the time(----)?

outdoor temp sensor probably loose connection/failed. The outside air temp sensor is on the bottom drivers side of the grill. Find it and probe it w/ a multimeter. 0.0, or infinite resistance means the sensor is shot.

Also make sure you are getting power from the harness

Can I change the clock in my 99 Beetle to standard time and not military time?

Yes. I believe you have to have the engine shut off. but with the power on hold the hour button until the time changes. you can change the temperature the same way but with the car running. in standard time 0 o- clock means midnight.

Outside temperature display does not display a temperature number. It just shows dashes.

this is caused by a defective or disconnected temperature sensor, it is located in front of the radiator

Roof problem

Hi Mps75200.
When you lower your top down make sure it is all the way down before releasing the button. This would cause the buzzer to go off. There is a secondary motor that pulls the top down another 1-2 inches after the top appears to have stopped moving to lock it in place. Hope this helps.

VW temperature display

The sensor for the temp display in located in front of the radiator under the hood, it is round and has 2 wires going to it, plug and unplug it a few times and recheck to see if the display works, if not replace the sensor.
