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.

Yes, it can be anything and you may need to have the codes check, but it can be nothing to be found.

I do have the same problem in my accord and elantra, when their milage counter up to a defined number, their mil will remind you to take them to have a body checkup. they may have nothing wrong!

Simply disconnect the battery "+" connector and wait for around 1/2 hour, connect the power back on, the counter should be reset. if the mil return back on right a way, definately it needs to be fixed. otherwise, it is in a good shape and can be run until the next milage counter set.

SOURCE: Malfunction Indicator Lamp(MIL) on and car shakes

Sounds like your o2 sensors are screwed up. there are 2 o2 sensors on the 1.8t (one before the catalytic converter and one after). The computer on your car uses data from the sensors to adjust the fuel mixture for your car. It sounds like it's running too rich which can cause detonation inside the piston. This is VERY bad for your pistons. Take it in to the shop and get OEM o2 sensors. Don't buy anything aftermarket.

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.

First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com, or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the check engine yellow light will turn OFF.

What does code 1-p0650 mean?


P0650 Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Control Circuit Malfunction

Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is located on the instrument panel. When the ignition switch is turned ON without engine running, MIL will light up. This is a bulb check. When the engine is started, MIL should go off. If MIL remains on, the on board diagnostic system has detected an engine system malfunction.

Possible Causes:
  • Harness or connectors (MIL circuit is open or shorted.)
  • MIL bulb may be faulty
