Hi Guys.

Driving to work this morning noticed engine symbol lit up.  car drives ok.  I've turned car on and off a few times but light stays on.  car has had a very recent full service. Is this symbol to do with emissions or does it flag up other issues.  Is it risky to drive it with this on. obviously I am going to get it checked .

If anyone has had any similar issues I would be interested with your views. I think this symbol is a On Board Diagnostic symbol but not sure exactly what it is saying is wrong.

Cheers.

Check engine light covers huge range of engine related sensors, exhaust, ignition etc .

Ideally want get a scan tool on it to read the codes, would be worth you either buying a basic obd2 scantool or using the freessm software and a obd2 vag cable off eBay or if have android phone use torque app & a Bluetooth obd2 mudule.

All is cheap and worth learning , quite bit info on here in some threads if search about .
