Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

My check engine light came on in my 2002 New VW Beetle, stick shift not a turbo. Ran code and says p0117 temp circuit, I may need new Coolant temperature sensor. My a/c died two weeks ago. Could this be connected? And how much trouble and $$ is this sensor to replace? Thanks for anything anyone can tell me.

If it's a 2.0L, then the coolant sensor would be an easy fix. It's between the Air box / engine (on top of the coolant flange on the end of the head). If you do that, you probably should do a thermostat. Usually it's recommended to replace the thermostat when you do a coolant temp sensor, but that's up to you.

I have a 2002 chevy tahoe 4X4 with a 5.3L that has set a P1258 code engine over temp, it has also set a P0117 ect low input code, and a P1637 L terminal circuit, P1638 F terminal circuit codes.


If these codes are being only set during start I would expect a failure of the battery. If the voltage goes much below 9 VDC the computers (EMS) can become erratic and codes and limp home modes are a common result of defective and discharged batteries!



Careful having the battery tested. Any arcing etc at the battery can be the kiss of death for the engine computer. Better to remove terminal to check. Or test the crank voltage with multi-meter.

Hi. I would think you should get an engine management light on with such aproblem
if you have, then a code check should find the problem.
Other than that,it could be the crankshaft position sensor or cam sensor or temperature sensor which is giving the wrong signal to the computer.
A diagnostic check will certainly find the problem
Good luck

the VW beetle has a plastic radiator, where the cap is if you look to the front of that it does a 90, it is cracked there. Here is the fun part, with a throx wrench ( I think it was a T-30) take apart the fenders and front bumper. At the auto parts store there is a plastic tank repair kit, the kit includes resign,fiber glass cloth, and a stick. You will need to rough up the crack as it is right where it angles and lay on the cloth and resign. Let it dry and it will not leak from there again. Good Luck Tim

Error code po0117. Vw beetle


16501/P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too Low Possible Symptoms
  • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
  • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
  • RPM at idle is irregular.
  • With all engine temperatures seldom idle rpm will vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
  • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
  • Bad acceleration during warming up.
    • Diesel: an indication is extreme long time burning time of the glow indication light.
Possible Causes
  • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
  • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check wiring and connections
  • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
Special Notes
  • In MY 1995-2002 (?) in Europe at VW-cars the G2/G62 had the bad reputation of breaking down often. The default G2/G62 is black and all replacements are green.

Had the same issue. I replaced one of the fuses in the little case on top of the engine. Check the fuse diagram in the manual, locate the one for a/c. The fuses are color coded by amps, just buy the right color and push into place. (I did this after verifying my coolant levels were normal)

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.

2002 VW Beetle Temp gauge flashing, why?


the coolant temp sensor is by far the most common fault.the only other thing it could be is the sensor in the coolant header tank.if you disconect the 2 pin sensor from where you top the coolant up and bridge out the 2 pins in the connector with a bit of wire.if this cures the fault you know its the coolant level sensor.if it persists and its straight from a cold start then the coolant temp sensor is the most likley cause.hope this helps.
