Could be any of a dozen different things. Most auto parts stores can read the error code, and give you a clue. Most likely it is one of (many) sensors. Is it still under warranty?

What is the warning light on 2005 vw gti


Hello! A thermometer light with two wavy lines underneath the thermometer indicates a problem with the VW's cooling system...When the engine is cold; Check the coolant level in the radiator...If it is full and since the light goes out when the engine reaches normal operating temperature the Low Coolant Level sensor is defective...But I suspect the level is low..

2008 VW passat, noticed noise coming from engine, thought the plastic cover was loose, then today the low oil pressure light came on. There was no oil on dip stick so had to add 3 quarts. exhaust pipe is...


This is not good. Keep check on the oil. Find the oil leak. Fix the oil leak. With any luck you may have not trashed the engine. If the leak is from the drain plug or oil filter. go back to the shop that did the oil change. Seek recourse. Most likely you destroyed the bearings. Listen for bottom of the engine knock/ noise.

Need to change the oil pressure sqitch on a vw passat


Hi before you do an oil change try seafoam in the engine oil. this can sometimes fix the problems you are having, I used seafoam in engine oil and fuel and breather line and ran engine for 100 miles, but don't run hard, and its cleaned all the sump and oil veins in the engine, as checked with a scope looking though the oil sump plug. it did a really good job, my engine is a bit older than yours 1994. oil sensor is at the bottom of the engine on the sump. pressure sensor is above the oil filter it has a single wire conection

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

Oil Light comes on VW passat


Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

ABS and coolant are unrelated unless there is a problem with the ECM (engine control module) or instrument panel. Is the red coolant warning sign for coolant level or temperature?

With ABS if there is any failure with any brake electronic component (sensor, motor, or fluid level etc) the ABS will shut down completely and flash the light. If the light is on or flashing the ABS is non functioning.

I need better information on the coolant and ABS to give better information.
