Default Dashboard Symbols

I have recently bought a used Golf GT TDi V Reg (Jan 2000). The owners guide is not specific to the TDi so i cannot work out some symbols that have now appeared. On the miles per gallon display a circle with a line diagonally though has appeared in the top left corner and in the top right corner a square with "1" in it is displayed. Can anyone tell me what they mean?

Default RE: Dashboard Symbols

If I'm not mistaken the circle w/ the line is the symbol for the "mean" or average of your gas mileage, and the square w/ the number 1 is your trip setting. I dont know exactly how it is on your ride, but my mk iv ( gasoline model)has a button on the bottom of the windshield wiper arm that switches it from 1= short trip, to 2=long trip readings.
Hmm, I wonder what happens when you touch both these wires at the same time?

I never got the owner's manual when I bought my used 2002 vw beetle. I have a new light that came on and wonder what it means. Is there any place to see the symbols and get an idea. ?

Well I can't say for your model but on mine your can switch betweem memory 1 and memory 2 and 1 & 2 show in the top right of the MFD. Memory 1 is current mpg and memory 2 is the average mpg since memory 2 was reset as frfnugn says. There is a circle with a line through it on the left as well.
