Do you have a scan tool to check the trouble codes ?

Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay the first step that you will need to take is use a scan tool and have the trouble codes checked to see what faults you have in the ecm that have triggered the light to come on you may have a issue with the throttle body causing the issue but the faults need to be checked first to make sure you also dont have a crank sensor fault . I hope this helps.
