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.

I disagree with honeymokey, but only partly. Most cars are built to accomodate either manual or automatic, and the appropriate version of the transmission gets bolted on at the factory. The fittings are all there for the other kind, though, and the car's computer can accomodate the change as well. That's the whole point of interchangeable parts. In fact, if you read VW fan forums like the TDI Club online, you'll find plenty of folks who've converted their transmissions, though they're usually going in the opposite direction (replacing automatic with manual).
Having said that, this isn't a cheap or simple job. It only makes sense if the old transmission is dead, and needs to be replaced. In other words, it's something you'd do if you were already facing a $4,000 repair bill for a new transmission. Why not spend the money on installing the kind of transmission you really want, if you're going to spend it anyway? If it's just a question of preference, even STRONG preference, you'd have to be a bit nutty to replace a perfectly good transmission. There are plenty of used Beetles around (and Golfs and Jettas, which are exactly the same car with different bodies), so just find one with the transmission you want.

If you are sure you have a key off battery drain, what you need to do is connect an ammeter to the negative side of the battery(disconnect the negative battery cable and connect one side of the ammeter to the battery terminal and one side to the and one side to the battery cable) note the reading and start pulling fuses one at a time making sure to put them back in their proper slot when the reading an the ammeter goes down to normal the short will be on the circuit of the fuse you have pulled if any part of these instructions is too difficult have the problem checked by a dealer
