I had the samething happen to my Jetta. I took it to the dealer and nothing was wrong.
I would think it's safe to drive until Monday when the VW shop opens.

Where is the DRL relay located?


There is no DRL relay , has a lamp control module .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) activate under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates daylight.


?€¢
The vehicle is not in the PARK position.

When the above conditions are met, the lamp control module (LCM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the low beam headlamps through CKT 589 (GRY), the DRL resistor, and CKT 12 (TAN). The DRL resistor reduces the voltage supplied by the LCM. The low beam headlamps light at a reduced intensity. The DRL disable if the vehicle is placed in the PARK position. When the ambient light sensor indicates darkness, the low beam headlamps automatically switch from a reduced intensity to a regular intensity.
Lamp Control Module (LCM)
In the center of the IP, below the center heater outlets

Malfunction Indicator Lamp


If you are not experiencing any running symptoms, you should be ok but take it in as soon as possible just in case it is serious which may end up costing more if you wait too long.

Engine Malfunction Light...drives at reduced speed...best 40kmph


Oh you can drive it, but drive it to the shop and have the EGR(Exhaust Gas Recirculation)valve replaced. That is what's causing your lack of power. It has to work in conjunction with all other emission control systems and once it' goes bad the engine will have no power but seams to work fine otherwise. Change the EGR valve.

Indicator malfunction


If it's on, that means the computer has detected the fault. Check the trouble codes, they will tell you where to start diagnosing.

The following are descriptions from the Mini-Cooper S owner's manual.

Service Engine Soon "?If the warning lamp comes on
either continuously or intermittently, this indicates a malfunction in the emissions-related electronic systems."

EML light: "Engine electronics ?Malfunction in the engine electronics. You can continue to drive with reduced engine output or engine speed."

Triangle circled by an arrow: "Automatic Stability Control plus
Traction (ASC+T)/Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
?Indicator lamp flashes: System active: drive and braking forces are regulated.
The indicator lamp stays lit: ASC+T/DSC switched off with button or defective. In the event of a defect: please have the system inspected at your MINI Dealer."

First, inspect the belts to make sure none failed at high RPM. If one broke, inspect any cable or hoses in the plane of the belt to see if there was any damage (e. g., a ripped wire in the ASC+T/DSC system). Second, get a readout of the engine error code. (If you get indications of a major vacuum leak including rough idle, look for a blown head gasket.) If you get something else, please post the results in a comment so we can go to the next step.

Hi, I have a 2001 VW Golf, yesterday the "Engine Emission Warning Lamp" came on, car runs normally, no misfire to the engine - but am concerned it could damage the car to carry on driving...


You will not damage anything, as the system is designed to go into 'Limp Mode' with reduced power if engine managment detects a serious fault that could compromise a emission related component.

You will notice this drop in performance and therefore seek help at your local VW shop or dealer.
If the vehicle is still running normally, then the fault is a 'soft code' or one that may be intermittent.

The lamp ( MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp.) can come on for any number of reasons and no drivability problems encountered. The ECU or on board computer will store the fault as a code to be extracted with a scanner plugged into the OBD port under the drivers knee panel ( USA models.)

Have a shop run a scan on the codes stored and let me know what the numbers are. Some shops can only pull power train codes and not body codes. I need to have all the codes stored so I can advise you as to your options.

One of the most common codes will be the P0300 code indicating a random miss fire. This is caused by water in the fuel, bad spark plugs, bad plug coils or engine valve problems.

Awaiting your reply.

I have malfunction indicator lamp on how i can fix that


go to autozne and have them do free engine computer scan. They will tell you fault codes.

Or, try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour. Then reconnect and drive 10 miles. It may have fixed itself already.
MIL light on is not a big issue. only if flashing
