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.

SOURCE: How do you reset the Malfunction Indicator Lamp in

Was the problem fixed? If not, the lamp will continue to come on until the problem is fixed.
Take your car to your local Auto Zone and ask them to perform a diagnostic test on the vehicle. They can tell you which system is failing and some ideas on how to fix it. The service is at no cost and only takes a couple of minutes.
Good luck.

many auto parts stores will check your computer to see what caused the lamp to be on ... often its just the gas cap not sealed good .. check for cracked rubber or rust .. they pull a slight vacuum in the tank for polution control and if the gas cap leaks air then that flags an error ... other things that often cause intermittant lamp on .. is the oxygen sensor .. that always gets worse with time but can be marginal for awhile... vacuum leaks like cracked vacuum hoses can trigger the alarm (frequent in VWs)(there is a vacuum hose kit available) .. any sensor that is monitored by the computer can cause the problem and that will be narrowed down by the computer test . check all fluid levels including brake fluid ..

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.

2000 vw beetle mil light is on


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.
The check engine light (MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp):

My beetle just engine just went off while driving


Make sure the battery terminals are secure. Other than that I would guess there is an electrcal fault on the vehicle. I am not familiar with the beetle but think if I were driving your vehicle I would make sure all electrical connections were as they should be.
