1993 Volkswagen EuroVan Q&A
1993 Volkswagen EuroVan Question: coolant light, gears!
I would check the coolant level sensor, i would also have the car diagnose to see if it tells you exactly what the problem is but most likely is the coolant level sensor - sinautoscan.com
I had the same problem and took it to Karmakanix in Berkeley. It turned out to be bad solder joints on the back of the instrument cluster. Someone else I know with the same vehicle had the problem and resolved it the same way. It wasn't expensive and Karmakanix was very good. I had other instrument "issues' related to the solder joints, some of which came back after a back country drive. Karmakanix called to see how the repair went and touched up the solder joints again for free. Second time was a charm. - CraigB
