HI! This will need a scan tool to identify the problem. The closest thing that the warning light can be is the check service light. Sometimes it shows up just for maintenance. Just to be sure have it scanned to know the fault. Good luck.

I don't have the owners book for my 2003 VW Beetle and a indication light came on that I don't recognize. I need help knowing what it is please.


Which indicator light is it? New beetles have an array of warning lights all around the speedo cluster. I have a shop manual for the new beetle. Let me know which indicator light it is and we will try to figure it out. Thanks.

Warning light


Check all of your fluid levels. Top them off one at a time and see which level turns the light out.

What oil type do I use...2003 vw beetle?


if U live in a cold climate use 5W-30W, if u live in a moderate climate with hot summers use 10W-30W, any name brand meets your engines requirements. Do not use any oils heavier than these two, it can cause engine bearing damage.

Check engine light blinks


My suggestion is to get the fault codes stored in the car's ecu read by a VW approved garage. That will tell them what "was" wrong. Once a fault has occurred the check engine light will probably stay on until the warning has been cancelled using VW software.
As for the grade of gas used in the car, the users manual will tell you that - it might also be written inside the filler cap.

I wouldn't recommend further use of "engine cleaner" - it might do more harm than good.

Go get the codes read and then you'll know for sure.

Hope this helps. D

Over heating


As a general rule with a modern VW TDI, if it isn't running properly go and get the engine fault codes read by a properly equipped garage. If your usual garage doesn't have the correct equipment I'd recommend finding one that does.

There are so many things that could be wrong that guessing is usually a waste of time, so "get the codes read" :-)

My '96 Passat TD (not a TDI) overheated last week and the battery light came on - it was a failed alternator belt which drives both the alternator and the water pump.

Hope this helps, D.
