Either your air pump is bad or you need a catalytic converter the only way to be sure is hook it to a scanner and watch the info but it is one of those two

VW Passat 2001: Exhaust emission warning lamp flashing. Manual says 'blinks if the catalyst can be damaged by misfires'. Any suggestions?


"Check engine light" EMISSIONS WORKSHOP! Do you want to shut it off??? After reading all of the negative comments and how much money Passat owners have spent due to this manufacturer's problem, I am going to save the day and save you $$$ by showing you how to "reset" the diagnostic computer which makes the "emissions workshop-check engine light come on! (This is the same thing the VW dealer will charge you hundreds of dollars to do.) To turn off the "Check Engine" (Emissions Workshop) light, simply follow these 5 basic steps:
1. Pop open the hood.
2. Insert the key in the ignition and turn without starting the engine until all of the dash indicators light and warning tones sound.
3. With the key still in the ignition, use a 10mm wrench or socket to loosen and completely disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery. Wait about 60 seconds before reconnecting.
4. Re-connect and tighten the negative (-) cable to the battery and close the hood.
5. Start the engine. THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT HAS GONE OUT!
If the light stays on, then there really is a problem. If it has turned off, be glad, but don't be surprised to see it come on again in a few weeks. If it comes on again, simply follow steps 1-5. Remember... This quick repair is for those who just can't stand looking at this light or afford to visit VW every time this light comes on. If you feel the need to service the vehicle, service the vehicle. I hope this has made your "NIGHTMARE" a little easier!!!

Exhaust omission warning light on


It means that the code you got was for an emissions problem. could be an O2 sensor or MAFF sensor.( Mass Air Flow ) Or even the catalytic converter. You should have posted the trouble code here.

Engine warning light and engine vibration 2002 VW Passat


The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

Indicator Lamp Warning


could be but it comes up for a reason
I suspect a cat converter malfunction and the explanation to keep the rpms lower indicates that it is not functioning properly or has failed and could be blocking the exhaust system
It could be a simple O2 sensor ( one after te cat converter) that has malfunctioned
don't wiat for the next service but have it checked out by an accredited service center and have the fault codes read
