SOURCE: Red light flashing that looks like music note in water... HELP

check your anitfreeze level. Is your heat guage high or close to the red line? Also have you checked your oil? To check antifreeze, remove cab when car is COLD make sure the coolant level is up to the top of the radiator. To check oil find the oil dipstick. (probably yellow) wipe clean once, reinstert fully, pull out again. check to make sure it is surely above the ADD mark. If it is at this mark, add 1 quart of oil.
If antifreeze is low, buy a jug of 50/50 antifreeze and get a funel and pour until radiator is full. Slowly pully it in little bits at a time, than slowly squueze and release raidator hose to burb the air bubbles out of the radiator hose.

If your temp guage is going up, than your came may need antifreeze. If it has fluid, than you may need to have thermostat replaced.

SOURCE: what does the code po606 mean on a 2001 volkswagen

ECM/PCM Processor malfunction. The 2 corrective actions are either "Check terminal resistance for CAN-Bus" or the bad one, "Replace Motronic Engine Control Module."

As for the first one, if you remove the center dash panel, then, assuming you have Torx scredrivers, remove the panel in front of the speedometer, plus the cover under there, you can make sure that the cables are securely attached. Hopefully that will fix it. If not, you will need to get a new computer for the car. You could try the online vendors, but might have to go to the dealership to get everything matched up correctly. The replacing part is easy, just a few screws holding the unit in place.

What is the symbol of overheating on a volkswagen beetle 2000

I've had this happen and the red symbol usually blinks when there's a problem. Usually means coolant needs to be added. Just remember that the ONLY coolant to use in this particular vehicle is the G12 coolant period! (well maybe G13 but very important to have the correct one) Could mean your engine.

For future reference, here's a link to all the 2000 VW symbols and their meanings:

Car starts but fails to run after two seconds

Most likely the immobilizer. If the vehicle stalls after 2-3 seconds, check the instrument panel for a flashing key symbol once it stalls, or just put the key in the ignition and rotate to position 1, and again, look for the flashing symbol.

What is the red thermometer symbol?

On my daughter 2000 beetle with 2.0 engine, the blue thermometer light comes on solid when you first crank it up because the coolant/engine is below operating temp. I have seen the red thermometer blink when the coolant is low.

Malfunction indicator light it is the symbol of your engine with a line of suffering and the word "CHECK" -- this could be something minor like needing a spark plug to be replaced (common problem) or to something more serious like engine electrical work needed. a flashing engine light is the more serious so you are not to worry.
