Question mark abuser:

Yes.

Of course, many people buy their car used and often the manual does
not remain with the car. Furthermore, perusal of owner's manual's for
issues such as the original topic in this post you will generally
find that the manual directs them to the dealer (ugh). Be kind with
your posts. You may need this group some time.

I own a vw, and this problem is on in the owner's manual. That's why I googled
it. I looked though the entire thing. So there you have it.

but very first check that the heater core is not leaking in the car mostly on
the passenger side these carpets will hold a lot of water, feel the carpet, if
saturated heater is leaking (very common), just disconnect the heater hoses
and reconnect one in a loop back to the engine, refill water bottle and drive,
if no more blinking light then heater core needs to be replaced.

The blinking red light means low coolant. If it stays red that meand its hot
and you shoud pull over and not drive it untill problem is resolved.

though this topic was in 2016,help out a brother. My polo 2006 coolant bottle
is acting up, flushing out water/coolant everytime i stop/park, more like the
water overheated but the temperature gauge is always at the middle. Checked to
see if theres a brokage, the coolant is seen droping back through the return
pipe nicely. What can be the problem?

Some used cars don't come with an owner's manual and not everyone can
understand every little detail in it even if they did look.
