    Dash warning lights.

    Hello.

    My car didn't come with a user manual and a few lights turn on, and Ill be damned if I don't know what they mean.

    I have gotten allot of them to turn off, today I got the ABS light to finally turn off.

    So any links to someone explaining what the lights mean?

    The current one I have is..

    Yellow circle with a triangle and an exclamation mark in the middle.

    It is ASR/ESP. Check if your traction control is turned off. There's a button right next to the radio that cycles it on and off.

    You can get the owner's manual here: https://www.vw.techliterature.com/co...uctSearch.aspx

    See if you can get the codes read for your car. It will probably say something about traction control malfunctions.

    Did you get your ecu flashed/get a chip? The traction control will be off for a while if so, it is normal.

    Nope. I am about to go get it flashed at the dealership. Just wanting to make sure I get everything fixed before I give them the money.
