Three beep alarm means what?

I have a 1998 VW beetle. Lately I have receiving a three beep alarm. The sound is similar to when the gas tank nears empty - but it beeps three times. What is the car trying to warn me about? Thanks

What lights are on on the dash, I'd check your fluids (coolant especially) .

ABS disabled


abs dont beep. alarm does. you will need to check this. abs alarm and ecu and immobiliser etc are linked. I.e locked to you make and model and serial code. alarm can beep and knock out one of the units. sometimes if this fault happens it can be a simple problem like the external alarm unit has its own power but is charged from the main battery. these can go wrong, will beep. you can disconnect this part of the alarm. there is the back up alarm part. I would check this.

vw beetles do not have a temp gauge so instead when the car is cold the light is blue at normal temp no light when over heating or low coolant red light and it beeps, you need the right coolant for your vw it is pink in color and some napas have it (Not DEX Cool) and you probably have a coolant leak, usually a plastic flang at rear of cylinder head goes bad

Coolant is low enough to trigger the sensor. There's a pressure leak somewhere in the system. The sensor is faulty.

2002 volkswagon beetle says that the trunk is when not.


The switch in the trunk which tells the alarm that the trunk lid is closed is either defective or not correctly adjusted. If this info is of no help to you, than you don't know enough to fix it. Take it to a reputable VW shop for repair.
