Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf

I have a 1997 Golf match and the other day the warning light in the shape of a thermometer was flashing all the time but the coolant guage showed the temperature to be in the normal range - could you advise what this could be?

Sounds like you are low on coolant or maybe coolant needs changed

Hi i have a warning light flashing on my dash. im wondering what it is and what it means ? the symbol looks like a thermometer with wavey lines . help


That is your coolant warning. You may be low on engine coolant or your engine may be overheating. You should check your coolant level in your car and make sure all your coolant fans are working properly or have someone else check it. You don't want to be overheating and driving the vehicle. It could cause some major problems. Check it out or get someone else to. Be careful.

The themomitor on the warning signs keeps flashing. i don't no what it means as i don't have then manuel!


The thermometer image has 2 meanings

1- check your heat gauge the temp might be too high

2- check your coolant level

In your case it is most probably your coolant level.

Top it up with normal water and have it checked out, it must be leaking coolant somewhere.

the coolant bottle is the big round one that looks like a ball with a blue or black flat cap.

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?


  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.

If this is a red flashing light beneath the temperature guage it means that you do not have enough coolant. Top up the large white ball shaped reservior at the right hand side of the engine compartment just behind the battery.

The thermostat will show what the guage shows. the seal on the coolent bottle can be checked for tightness. so it could be a faulty sensor?

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.
