It will stay on until the fault is cleared, usually by plugging in an "on board diagnostic" system. This can be done at a VW dealer or you can do it yourself with a laptop computer, free VAG diagnostic software and a cheap interface cable. You may be able to make the light go out by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, but that won't make the fault go away, it just makes the light go out. Hope this helps, D.

If you mean the check engine light, you have to get the computer scanned for trouble codes, then after the repairs are made, the codes are erased and the light will stay off.

If you mean the check engine light, you would use a scanner or code reader to get the trouble codes from the computer, fix the problem, then erase the codes. The light should stay off after that.

PO1693 CODE WHAT'S MEANS


that code is for a MIL indicator malfunction-in other words, your check engine light is malfunctioning...do you have a MIL light that works when you turn you key on, before starting? If not, the bulb is blown out, and you should replace it. If it does work, I'd suggest disconnecting the negative battery cable and letting the car sit for 5 minutes, then start it up and let it idle (no gas at all) for 5 minutes, then drive it lightly for another 5-if the light stays on, you have a malfunction with either the wiring to the light or possibly the ECM.

VSC and Malfunction Indicator came on and stays on


When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.

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.
