From what i read, the flashing temp light means the coolant level is low. Check your coolant reservoir. See this webpage for more information:

SOURCE: 2003 Volkswagon beetle temp light is red. (Usually

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.

SOURCE: 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.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle, the blue temperature light is on all the time, it is kangerooing with no acceleration when cold, nothing shows up on the code reader any ideas Laura


There are probably two coolant temp sensors--one for the dash display and one for the ECU to do fuel trim. Unlikely that both have failed at same time, but possible. First, insure coolant thermostat is not stuck open preventing normal warm up, then test or replace coolant temp sensor for the ECU.

2000 vw beetle 2.0 L, low level coolant light...engine mil code 1256


not the pump but air in the system or a broken wire to the coolant level sensor
that sensor at the top of the radiator tank has to be completely immersed in coolant or the circuit is broken and the light comes on
same effect id the wire to that sensor is broken in the insulation

vw beetles do not have a temp gauge so instead when the car is cold the light is blue at normal temp no light when over heating or low coolant red light and it beeps, you need the right coolant for your vw it is pink in color and some napas have it (Not DEX Cool) and you probably have a coolant leak, usually a plastic flang at rear of cylinder head goes bad

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.

Heater not warming or taking too long


First off need to know if it is a 2.0 or 1.8T engine. Most likely you have a 2.0L engine. The coolant light on the dash will stay blue untill the temp reaches a set temp by ECM, then goes out. Since the Beetles do not have a temp gauge you dont know what the actual temperature is. I replace thermostats on these all the time for this problem on these cars. To test this, start car and let run at idle and set heater fan on low. Let run untill you feel warm to hot air coming out the vents. Once its as warm as it is going to get, go drive the car at a steady cruise and see if the temp drops. If so then you need a thermostat replacement. I only use OE VW thermostats 050121113C. Hope that helps you out. Kevin
