Hi I was just changing the temperature setting on the refridgerator. Then afterwards the warning light starting flashing and there was a loud beep. I pressed the warning? light (the light on the far right) and the sound stopped, but the light is still flashing. What does this mean? What should I do.

Have you any means to measure the fridge / freezer temperatures, which should be 5 degrees C and -18 degrees C respectively - (put a cup of water into the fridge for 24 hours then test that temp)
If the temperatures are above that, this is an alarm code condition and you will need to look at the operation of the cooling system. For example, is the motor running constantly? can you hear a circulation fan running in the freezer cabinet when the motor is running? Does there appear to be a buildup of ice at the rear of the freezer cabinet panel?
As a first aid sort of check, try removing the food from the freezer and turning everything off for 24 hours which should manually defrost the unit. If everything works ok afterwards, but then fails again a day or two later it may be an automatic defrosting problem.
If the compressor is running 24/7 and getting very hot, you may have major cooling system faults which will require a service engineer call - or replacement!
When this warning light flashes it means the fluid (ATF) temperature of the transmission have reached a level that is detrimental to the operation of the transmission and damage will occur if the cause is not corrected. The causes can be overloading (towing) the vehicle, severe operational circumstances such as high air temps. Other common causes are excessive slippage of the transmission due to worn clutch packs or a defective torque converter. Also the TFT (trans fluid temperature sensor) can malfunction and send a false signal to transmission control module (TCM) and set the warning light. I would not ignore this warning, have it checked by a transmission shop or the dealer.
Hi, has the weather just turned colder? The Beetle has a blue warning light to tell you that the engine temperature is low. Meaning drive the car at lower speeds/revs until it's warmed up and the light go's out. Hope that helps, Matt.
