Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
This is OBD - On - Board -Diagnostic Display.
On Board Diagnostics, OBD-II, is required on all automobiles and light trucks from 1996 onward. OBD-II is a set of specifications for monitoring and reporting on engine performance in modern automobiles.
If the Service Engine light is on, then connecting a Code Scanner on OBD Connector, the Code is picked up and the code explanation can be found. If this is a False Code, this can be Cleared with the code scanner, after reading the code. The location of OBD-II connector in your car can be found here:
Remember the Check Engine light only comes on for emissions-related failure (which includes fuel and ignition, too). A separate warning light will illuminate if there are non-emission problems such as low oil pressure, charging system problems, etc.
If the light is on because of a misfire or fuel delivery problem, and if the problem does not occur after three drive cycles, the Check Engine light may go out. Whether the light goes out or remains on, a code will be snt and remain in the computer memory to help you diagnose the fault.
More information for the codes can be found here:
After the code is picked up with a scanner, the code explanation is founded, and a decision has to be made to fix the problem or to clear the code. This can be done with the same scanner. If you do not have a scanner, any AutoZone, or Advance car parts store can do it for free.
