Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.

Certainly the person telling you this had a scan tool but did not investigate thoroughly why it was misfiring and only suggested a bad plug in cyl #4. A bad plug is usually the case maybe from a mixed matched set of plugs. Having a distributor-less system some people miss to check the ignition coil pack. Technically you can't correct a problem by resetting it's warning indicator which some people think they have a red FIX button. In this case the engine management needed 3 start up cycles to verify if problem was fixed after erasing the DTC stored in the system, hence the 3 days. The ignition coil pack could be going bad or the individual ignition wire is. Is this an AEG engine code?

16502/P0118/000280 From Ross-Tech Wiki Jump to: navigation, search Contents [hide]

if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } 16502/P0118/000280 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too High Possible Symptoms
  • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
  • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
  • RPM at idle is irregular.
  • With all engine temperatures idle rpm will often vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
  • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
  • Bad acceleration during warm-up.
  • Diesel Engines: Glow plug indicator may be on for a longer than normal time or at ambient temperatures where it shouldn't come on at all.
Possible Causes
  • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
  • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check wiring and connections
  • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
Special Notes
  • In many cars between MY 1995-2002 the G2/G62 had a bad reputation for failing often. The original G2/G62 sensor is black and the improved replacements are green.

Code 1 senser P0118 on a 2004 V.W beetle dicesel

Symptoms:- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes:
(Inspect the following... Repair/Replace if necessary)
- Low engine coolant level
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor
- Faulty engine coolant thermostat

P0118 VOLKSWAGEN Description: The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The modified signal returns to the (ECM) as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.
When is the code detected?:When an excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need further assistance.

2004 volkswagon beetle check engine light


1st thing is remove the cap of the coolant resivoir,
2nd, check the fluid level.
3rd remove the return hose to the resivoir
4th start the vehicle and see if there is fluid rushing out of it
if not you have a flow proble, either the water pump or the T-stat
5th Replaced the coolant temperature sensor located on the
thermostat housing (depending on what motor you have)
if there is flow at the return tube then just change the temp sensor
if there is no flow, you will wanna replace the t-stat and the water pump
I hope this helps

2004 new beetle: engin light comes on during acceleration and noise around valve cover. Compression check provides 180 to 210 PSI. Dip stick indicates oil level full.


There will be a code stored if the light has been activated, it is guess work without the code.

VAG have numerous common issues (BUT STILL A GREAT CAR)

Get the code, let me know what it is then I can advise the cheapest route to take

Kind regards

2003 Volkswagon beetle temp light is red. (Usually starts out blue and then goes out when the engine warms up.)


A red light indicator may signify a hotter temperature, but may not necessarily indicate an overheating condition. A couple things can lead to this condition - low fluid level (check the fluid resevoir), the wrong coolant being used previously, a weak or failing water pump, a plugged or partially plugged coolant radiator, a bad fan, or a bad thermostat. I'd personally check the coolant first, usually needs to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or so, then check to see if you have any leaks if the fluid level is depressed. Then allow the car to operate from a cold start in the drive while observing the performance under the hood and compare it to the dummy light.

Hope this helps.

1999 VW Bug Service engine Light


When you say water light comes on, do you mean coolant level, or coolant temp or ? Check coolant level and top off if needed. Bring the Beetle to a parts store, most offer free check of check eng. light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' stored engine codes in the cars computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest what to do. If you have further questions, post them here along with the code numbers.
