Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Based on your description, if it is red that would be the "Brake System" warning light. This warning light indicates that the hand brake or the park brakes are engaged. Alternately, this could also indicate that the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir is below nominal. Top off brake fluid if low and have your brake pads checked as well as visually inspect for any possible brake fluid leak.
On the other hand if it is yellow that would be the ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Momentary lighting up would be normal at startup but consistent light would indicate a malfunction in the brake system such as either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid level and have your vehicle's brakes checked.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
