my girlfriend bought a beetle 1.8t, 2000.
I just change the thermostat, and just wondering why not the engine light is shows when ignition is turned on.
Is it possible that someone disconnected this light, and how 😳
As i said, we have seen the leds on the internal circuit board, desoldered or ripped off and then, tape covering the light, inside, between the light, then speedo face itself. This way it is hidden and you cannot see it being on.
My daughters beetle has an immo delete so the light always flashes. I removed the speedo, partially separated it and placed a piece of black electric tape over the immo light. Even when I look for it knowing it’s there I can’t see it.
Check the ross tech link for testing checks; you might check for cam chain mvb for chain stretch, if the engine supports it. Is the head noisy? Chains stretch and eventually the tensioner wears out and fails.
