This is the sensor that control cold start up idle just like a choke use to do on the old carborated systems. It allows for the car to idle slightly higher and tells the ccu to adjust the air to fuel ratio for cold starting. Since it is a volkswagen it could be rather expensive.

Blue light stays on in my 2000 beetle sometimes flashes


Not certain, but you may be referring to the blue light that indicates when the water temperature in the cooling system is "cold". It's typically blue when the car first starts, then changes color when the water temperature rises. If the light remains blue the water temperature isn't heating up, and you may want to have the cooling system flushed and checked. Depending upon the cars mileage, it may be time to flush the cooling system anyway.

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.

Temperture icon flashes


if the light is blue it just means the car is not at operating temperature yet. let the car warm up before driving. if the light is red and only stays on for seconds check the coolant level. could possibly be a bad level sensor also if the light is red

Trouble codes


The listing of codes that I have states that a P11xx code is related to fuel and air metering. I'd suspect from the past to check for vacuum leaks (broken, cracked or disconnected vacuum lines) or possibly the mass airflow sensor. You can get electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack, unplug the electrical connector for the mass airflow sensor, and clean it to see if that helps.
