Just had my 2000 Beetle in for a general tune up - nothing wrong - and now the coolant light is beeping and flashing red. Is it safe to drive it back to the mechanic?

All VW engines need to have the cooling system bled of all air after refilling.its safe as long as you dont hear any stange noises and you carry a bottle of water after youve checked its full.

The water light keeps coming on, but it is blue so does that mean the car just inst warmed up yet or is something wrong with my car?


The blue light indicates the engine is not up to operating temperature. It will go out once the engine is up to operating temperature. If it is yellow/red the car is overheating. If it is flashing the coolant is low.

Coolant is low enough to trigger the sensor. There's a pressure leak somewhere in the system. The sensor is faulty.

An icon came up and i dont know what it means


That is your coolant light. When the coolant is cold (car is cold) it is blue for a moment then goes out.
When the coolant is too hot, it is red.
When it flashes, you are low on coolant. Check the coolant tank level (it is the big ball shaped reservoir) and make sure you are within the operating level (about half way up, there are marks indicating proper level)

Start with checking your coolant level( only use VW coolant if low). If full, change out your coolant temp sensor. Buy the one from the dealership. The others are ****.

From what i read, the flashing temp light means the coolant level is low. Check your coolant reservoir. See this webpage for more information:
