the coolant light and oil light comes on and if you turn off the car plug the coolant light back in and start the car both lights stop flashing correct? Please answer correctly what the question is asking very critical

Coolant light comes on when unplugged and off when plugged back in and oil light is on all the time

Ok do you have vag com /vcds scan tool. Reason is that is we need to scan the instrument cluster for codes and read the values of what the cluster is seeing to narrow down.

No i dont have one
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Any particular one that i need so i can purchase it
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 10 months ago
There are too many possibilities right now and can be expensive parts. Need to narrow down with the scan tool. eBay VCDS CHINESE CLONE you will need a lap top to use it. About 100.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago

VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 10 months ago
