Had the oil changed in 2002 New Beetle. The check engine light, ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation), and EPC (Electronic Power Control) dash warning lights are all on. Solid lights, not blinking.


Not without clearing codes. And if the check engine light is on due to an actual problem, it can turn the other warning light on too so you know those systems are disabled. Usually a problem with ABS or traction control will not turn on the check engine light.
Your owners manual would talk more about what the lights mean.
I would have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes first.

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.

Some auto parts stores scan check engine lights for free. If you can get the code, and tell me what your engine/trans is in the Beetle, I can help narrow down the cause of the check engine light.

start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

Hi, the MIL (engine check light) will only go out when the car has had 50 drive cycles - start, run to normal operating temperature and stop, without further faults. A normal EOBD code reader such as you used to check for the fault originally should also be able to cancel the fault and put the light out. If the code won't clear, suspect a faulty ignition coil. Which is a common fault on these vehicles.
Hope that helps Matt...

The warning light above the airbag light on the dash. 2002 VW


Malfunction indicator light it is the symbol of your engine with a line of suffering and the word "CHECK" -- this could be something minor like needing a spark plug to be replaced (common problem) or to something more serious like engine electrical work needed. a flashing engine light is the more serious so you are not to worry.

I had the same problem on my 2000 beetle and I had to change the water pump . Once you change the water pump you have to change the timing belt because the water pump is run by the timing belt .
you could know if it is the water pump by checking the hose that comes from the radiator to the enging to se if there is water running to the engine .

My car over heats, but i get no warning lights on my dash. i have coolent and oil, but i still over heat.


Hi,

If there are no dashboard/warning indicators in an overheating situation, then the coolant thermal sensor is faulty and needs replacement.

A few things you can try to reduce overheating:
  • remove altogether the thermostat (not applicable in cold weather);
  • hotwire the radiator fan to be always on when engine is running;
  • check the: radiator hoses, radiator, water pump.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
