Check engine light came on 2002 vw turbo diesel beetle?


well first off you need to have the codes checked and go from there there are many reasons that can cause the engine light to come on. when you find what codes are stored in it you can go from there. as for the turn signals most of th time i replace the emergency flasher switch. but it wouldnt hurt to check the fuses first.

When I approach stop light and press in clutch to shift down, car stalls. Battery light comes on. Sometimes will restart and be OK until next stop, other times will not restart until it "rests"...


if it is cranking and starting back i would say its not a batt or alternating problem

most likely the reason the batt light is coming on is because its idleing rough as it quits running if it were me i would just drive it to a dealer and save the toe bill

We think it is the diesel injection pump but not sure


Sounds like not all the glow plugs are working.It should run fairly smooth on a cold start if all of the glow plugs are working..Also you shouldn't drive off on a cold start with a diesel,Its really hard on the motors..At least give them 10 to 15 min on a cold start..The oil in them is a really thick oil and when there drove on a cold start theres no oil lubricating the internal parts and will cause the motor to seize up..You may already no this and dont mean you drive it as soon as you start it i just wanted to let you know..When you get alot of white smoke it could be two things,Theres water in the fuel which will make it not have much power die and smoke..But if it runs fine when its warm theres some bad glow plugs...Hope this helps you and have a great day

Idling is rough after long distance drive


Try draining the fuel filter and replacing first if it does not clear up then I need some more information from you do the cheep fix first. also use a diesel injector cleaner to clean the nozzles and valves as carbon build up will cause timingto be off.
