Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
I just purchased a used 2000 Beetle. The used dealer I purchased it from advised me of that the light flashed on when they drove it to get it checked out before I bought it. They told me they'd take care of it. They first put on a new fan. Then a relay, or module or something like that. When that didn't fix the problem they said they replaced one of the water pumps which they said looked bad upon inspection. The dealer then drove it about 50 miles non stop with the air conndition off then 50 with it on and had no problems. Now that I brought it home, the light comes on at startup but goes off. Is there something else I need to do, or should i not worry unless the light stays on?????
The blue engine temp light comes on and stays blue until the engine warms up. Once it is warm it will go out. If the light comes on and stays on after that and is red you are overheating. This is all written in the owners manual.

If the light is coming on, they should be hooking a computer up to the car to see what the car computer is exactly trying to say. Maybe low coolant, bad thermostat, blockage in radiator restricting flow, it could be a number of things. Does it come on more often in the city or the highway driving?
