Sounds like heater core may need to be cleaned... volks wagons have heating systems that sometimes do very strange things for no apparent reason....

From what i read, the flashing temp light means the coolant level is low. Check your coolant reservoir. See this webpage for more information:

My heater in my volkswagen bug blows but do not blow hot air


If you car is coming to temperture but you still have no heat then you probably need a new flow control valve for the heating system.

Make sure your cooling system is filled to recommended level before you consider the heater control valve. Low coolant levels can have similar effects.

Good luck and be safe!

2005 Pathfinder Heat Flow problem


I am having/had the same problem. My rear heater has not worked the last 2 winters, still trying to figure that one out. But I think I solved the front heat problem myself. The heater was blowing cold air while idling and hot air when the car was moving.

I jacked up the front of the vehicle, took the cap off of the reserve tank for the radiator, turned the car on and ran the heat (AC off) for 15 minutes. This is supposed to release any air bubbles in the coolant system and I did see air bubbles emerge as I was watching (this might be normal occurance, I'm far from a mechanical expert). Anyway, this did not immediately solve the problem, still blowing cold air as it sat there idling after 15 minutes. Dejected, I put the cap back on, lowered the vehicle and resigned myself to taking it to a dealer.

But a funny thing happened the next day, the coolant level was a lower (no leaks on the floor) so I filled up, and sure enough, when I started the car and let it warm up a little, hot air started coming out of the heater!!!

As far as my wife knows, I fixed the problem for the price of a bottle of coolant, so I am a hero...but at first I thought it didn't work. Here we are a month later and still blowing warm air and haven't had to replace any more coolant...the internet is a wonderful thing!

Hope this works for you, and I hope I can figure out my rear heater problem as well.
