Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

2 Answers

Vehicle says its overheating but isn't

I have a 2001 VW Beetle, 1.8 turbo. The coolant light flashes as if it is overheating but the vehicle shows no physical signs of really overheating. Replace the coolant temperature sensor, twice, thinking the first one was defective, still the same problem.

Question. Did you get coolant temp sensor from auto parts store or dealer? If from auto parts store they are not a very good product for VW's. Get the one from dealer.

Locate your coolant overflow/fill canister. Check the coolant level and make sure it is still clean and clear. Next clean out any dirt/debris from the front grill and radiator. Finally, make sure the radiator fan and pump are working properly.

Blue coolant light comes back on and flashes? why


The light should be for a low level sensor in your coolant reservoir. Check your coolant level (when vehicle is cold), if fluid level is ok then the sensor is probably the culprit.

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.
