Question about 2008 Volkswagen Eos
My malfunction indicator lamp came on while driving. I've noticed it's running at reduced power. what could this be?
SOURCE: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)
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.
My 2 cents

Tips for a great answer:
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.

each time the ignition is cycled, all 5 mode indicators light simultaneously, as an indicator check to ensure proper operation of the indicators. when the ignition is on, the transfer case shift control module illuminates the indicator lamp that corresponds to the current atc gear position, by providing a ground through a current limiting driver.
the transfer case shift control module flashes each indicator lamp after a shift has been requested and continues to flash until the transfer case shift control module completes the shift.
a solid state circuit, located inside the switch, supplies ignition voltage to the lamps. the solid state circuit also receives voltage when the headlamp switch is in the parklamp or headlamp position. when the solid state circuit receives voltage from the headlamp switch, the circuit reduces the voltage that is supplied to the indicator lamps, dimming the lamps when the headlamps are on.
the numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.
