The engine warning warning light is basically an engine management issue or it means that either a engine sensor has developed a fault and tus this logs a fault code in the ecu or ecu control component on the engine is at fault.sometimes egr system/intake turbo wastegate,vacuum system issues/mass airflow can be quite common for causing this,so ideally those could be checked...when the light stays on its means the cars ecu has stored fault codes..and should give a better insight or idea where to start making normally the best advice from here id say would be to have the car scanned on a proper diagnostic vag .com. software prefered,that is the first step any garage would do..and see what fault codes are being stored..once you have those then your in a much better position knowing whats needs to be checked or replaced even..I do hope this helps
