The computer doesn't say replace the sensor, it says that there is a problem in the sensor circuit, that can be the wiring, the PCM or the sensor, u must check all three.

Replace with the new version of the sensor, clear the code.

WHERE IS THE SENSOR LOCATED?


This is a known problem. The temp sensors go bad every so often. VW recognized this a few years back, updated the sensor and accordingly changed the colour from brown to green. oops.... They still go bad. The sensor is on the drivers side of the engine, on the back of the head in what looks like the thermostat housing. If you have a man trans there's a set of glow plugs commin out of it. This is the only temp sensor on the TDI. There's a plastic horseshoe clip (the dealer should have offer you one when you bought the sensor) you have to pop out, then wiggle the sensor until it comes out. MAKE SURE THE OLD O-RING COMES OUT, this will make instaling the new sensor much easier and will prevent your all your coolant from leaking out.... Yah, I seen it done, not good. Worst part is you can't see what you are dooing so good but its fairly simple. Good luck and happy motoring

I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi


You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
Radiator hoses
Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
Overflow reservoir cracked
Radiator leak.

Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.

Blinking temperature light is on 2002 Jetta


Its most likely the ETC sensor. Its located on the side of the head on the cooling flange. Very easy to replace just unplug the wire and slide the clip out of the side. You can get one from VW for about $25. Make sure to get a new o-ring with it.
