I recently purchased a 2000 beetle from a used car lot in mid July this year. The car is beautiful and well maintained and runs excellent. Today I noticed my check engine light came on. The car is running fine I see nothing nor feel anything wrong. Does anyone have any pointers as to what I can check myself before taking to a dealer. The light is solid and not flashing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Billy

It could be anything. The only way to find out for sure is to scan the ECU and that will tell you the fault code that will say what's wrong.

Here's my two guesses:
Gas cap not tightened completely (remember not to leave the engine running while fueling). Click a minimum of six clicks when tightening.
Or the vacuum hoses need to be replaced. (code 0411)
