2004 Volkswagen Passat with 1.8 engine

The water pump went out and info center warned to shut car down an check coolant with red temperature light illuminated. Replaced water pump, timing belt, thermostat and coolant. Restarted but can not get red temperature light to go out or info center warning to reset. Code reader shows no codes to clear. Need to know how to clear light and info center warning.

  1. Temperature sending unit may be unplugged or failing. If it hasn’t had a chance to bleed out all the air pockets that can cause an issue for a while as well. Once the cooling system is bled and topped off it should go out on its own. You may try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to clear the light if it is still on after that.
