Check coolant level. If ok, change coolant temp sensor.

Our temperature gauge goes from a blue light to a flashing red. after putting more coolant in, it seems to correct the issue for a little bit then it happens again. Why is this light going on?


The blue light is only supposed to indicate low engine temperature, reminding you to go easy on the engine until the light goes out.
The flashing is either for low coolant or for overheating, and it sounds like you are having a low coolant problem.
If after you add coolant the lights comes back, you have a coolant leak. The most common place for a leak is the coolant flange on the end of the cylinder head. If you take the engine cover off and look at the area where the transmission meets the engine, you should see either pink coolant puddling or pink crusty residue.
It's also possible to have other leaks from the radiator, heater core, water pump, etc. The nice thing is that with the pink coolant it will leave a trace of pink residue leading to the leak if you take a good look around with a flashlight.

A blue warning light keeps coming on on mitsubushi colt 58 reg, it is below the red warning light squiggly lines with thermometer, the blue warning light is exactly the same just blue, what does this mean.


It is a low coolant temperature light. IT is normal for the light to come on when starting the engine from cold but should go out after a couple of miles, if not then consult a dealer.

The water light keeps coming on, but it is blue so does that mean the car just inst warmed up yet or is something wrong with my car?


The blue light indicates the engine is not up to operating temperature. It will go out once the engine is up to operating temperature. If it is yellow/red the car is overheating. If it is flashing the coolant is low.

Let it run. It should stop, it flashes until the engine warms up above 100 degrees. This is normal, They want you to go easy on the car until it warms up a little.

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.

Blue light stays on in my 2000 beetle sometimes flashes


Not certain, but you may be referring to the blue light that indicates when the water temperature in the cooling system is "cold". It's typically blue when the car first starts, then changes color when the water temperature rises. If the light remains blue the water temperature isn't heating up, and you may want to have the cooling system flushed and checked. Depending upon the cars mileage, it may be time to flush the cooling system anyway.
