    Engine Temperature red warning light

    My 1990 VW LT35 van (2.4 6 cyl diesel) has a temperature guage with a red warning light in the centre. The red light flashes continuously event though the temp reads normal. Any ideas?

    Yes, water level warning. The sensor is in the bottle and there is an under dash relay plus the gauge can fail as well.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Hi there, indeed ill think you'll find that your temp is not at fault, it's the green strips behind your clock pod thats playing up.
    This is a normal occurrence on T25s/mk 2 golfs/ and older LTs, and early T4s
    Learn to live with it, and the chances are your temp is fine.
    Just obviously keep an eye on your water level.
