when you lock your vehicle with the remote it engages the alarm and the red light will flash fast for about 15 seconds. Then it will start flashing very slowly to show the system is armed. To disarm it you need to open the door with the remote or put the fob in the ignition. If you use the key to open the door and alarm is on it will go off. Only way I know of to make it quit honking and flashing lights is to hit unlock button or insert for into ignition.
I would sit in the vehicle and arm the lock with the remote and watch to light for about 1 minute to see if it does flash fast first then slowly. If it does it is working fine. If it doesn't then take it in and have dealer look at it.
If u know of someone who has an old scanner u can easily access the codes. Otherwise u need to jump pins a and b in the doc together with the ignition.on but the motor not running. The check engine light will flash codes. Long flashes are r tens and fast flashes r ones. It will start with 12. One long and then 2 fast. This will sequence 3 times and then go on to more codes. Once u have the codes u can look them up to get to the correct failure area. U may still need a pro to diagnosis it further but u will have a clue to the affected failure. Fyi the 12 is just a distributor code that will show up since the engine is not running. This is a normal code and should be ignored.
fast flashing inside indicator lights usually mean a dodgy earth wire. start the car, put on the indicator, get out and have a look at what the outside lights are doing, check both sides. You may find the stop/tail light also flashes dimly with the indicator, if so then it is a dodgy earth wire, it may be touching another wire or be loose. check it out and get back to me. I am in the UK and I think our lights are a little different, but give it a go and see what happens
Securilock problem for your remote start? Check when you try to start it, if the security light is flashing fast it is probably the PATS (security system) bypass. To reprogram it you will need two keys. First insert the first one and turn it to the run position. When the security light shuts off insert the second key and turn it to run. Once the light has gone off the second time pull the key out and hit the start button on the remote start fob, this all has to be done in 10 seconds. The vehicle will start, shut it off and try it again. If it doesn't start look to see if the security light is flashing fast again if it is the bypass needs to be replaced. If the light isn't flashing fast and it still doesn't start it should be honking at you or flashing its lights, count these then look in your manual it will tell you what is wrong. If none of these work let me know and I will help you. You can also check out my profile I have a tip that is about remote starts.
does this car have an aftermarket alarm system? it sounds like it does, as i dont ever recall seeing a blue flashing light in one of these cars. do you have an alarm / auto start remote control? try locking / unlocking the car several times with the remote, if it has a remote start try starting it with the remote a few times. try locking / unlocking the car with the key. good luck!
Hi, has the weather just turned colder? The Beetle has a blue warning light to tell you that the engine temperature is low. Meaning drive the car at lower speeds/revs until it's warmed up and the light go's out. Hope that helps, Matt.
should be either to the left of steering colume under dash or to the right of colume under dash. Just start with one end of paper clip in the terminal to the right at the end and move the other end until the chk.engine light starts flashing, just make sure to turn key off each time you go to move the one end of paper clip and turn it back on each time to see if it flashes Now when light starts to flash you count how many times it flashes for example it will flash once than paus then flash twice quick witch is 12 and so on, or three fast paus and then two fast witch is 32 thats your codes.
