That symbol stands for Electronic Immobilizer. Here's a summary of what the manual has on it... When the ignition is switched on, an automatic key data test takes place. The data test is confirmed when the warning light illuminates and then will turn off after approx 2 seconds. However, if a non-authorized key is used, the warning light will blink continuously and it says the engine will not start.

Blue light started flashing what is wrong


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.

Orange waring light on dashboard is on . The


If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

Flashing light on dashboard


I would have to say it is the anti-theft light since it only flashes after you lock the doors which if this is that is normal,shows system is armed. However when looking through the owners manual on a 2003 model it shows it as THEFT and not a key,2002 shows the same,however 2004 shows a lock. The only thing I see that even closely resembles a key is the temp warning indicator.

You can go to this website and pick owner guides on the left task bar,then input your vehicle info,then pick get owner guides,then pick the owner manual and it will show you a picture of the instrument cluster and what everything means.

This light is telling you that you have an Airbag Problem. You might want to Locate a Mechanic and have this Checked out. This is not something that you want to try and fix yourself as the AirBags could go off and Cost a Lot more to have the Dah and Sterring Wheel Replaced. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!

It sounds like your low oil level light is on. Do you have an owners manual. If so look it up in there and it will tell you what the light is.
