It's safe to drive but you should definately bring it into the mechanic as soon as you can to fix the problem before a small problem turns into a big expensive problem

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.

Abs light dose not turn off


If the yellow ABS light is on and the red brake light is off, the vehicle is safe to drive. The ABS system is disabled due to a problem the computer noticed. You will need to take it to a repair facility or dealership to have them connect a scan tool to your computer. From there, they can read the trouble code(s) and tell you what the problem is. Then they can quote you a price for the part/repair. If the ABS and red brake warning lamps are on, do NOT drive the vehicle, but have it towed to a shop. This would indicate a major malfunction of the brake system.

You need to get the codes from the computer to know where to look. This could be a simple O2 Sensor and on this model vehicle the ECM will go into fail safe mode that will let you drive it to a service location for repair. The stored code will tell you which it is and what you need to look at for a repair.

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.
