Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta
Posted by Anonymous on
That is a symbol for the immobilzer system in the car. Your keys have chips inside that are programmed to a computer in car. If the computer inside car does not recieve the signal from keys the car will start and then shut right down. Its an anti theft feature. It seems that there maybe something going on with your immobilizer system. If all keys work fine, have the dealer scan the computer for any codes.

SOURCE: i have a key symbol
This is your security or anti-theft light. Check your owners manual first, but I have reset them on other cars by unhooking the negative battery cable for a minute or two, then using the key fob to lock and unlock the doors a couple of times. I believe your car has a microchip in the key, so make sure nobody tried to start it with a hardware store copy.

It's to do with traction control...
usually means the skid control has armed itself because the car has detected a lack of traction (if you skidded) or the car has sensed it is cold

Since you don't have a manual, here are the three you need to worry about (other than the VERY obvious, the CEL, the brake, and the battery lights)
The little oil can on the left side of the cluster is oil pressure, and if the oil pressure light is coming on, you either have a bad sending unit, or you are pretty much shafted... the oil pressure light doesn't come on unless the pressure is REALLY Low. The gauge is the warning, the light comes on when it is too late (something like 2-3 psi).
On the right side of the cluster are two more, the one on the bottom, with the little vertical lines is the sensor in your radiator overflow bottle.
The one you are wondering about from your original problem is right above the radiator indicator, it is for windshield washer fluid level. when it comes on, check the fluid, but don't sweat it if the fluid is full, the sensor gos bad, mine went bad a while ago, and my light has been on in my 94N/A for the last 50k miles or so. This is one light it doesn't hurt too much to ignore.
