Hi Nathan. Thanks for contacting us today. The check engine light will illuminate any time the ECU detects a mechanical or electrical issue. This creates a OBD-II trouble code and stores it in the ECU. In most cases, the code will provide a professional mechanic with a starting point to determine a fault, like the one you’ve described. It is quite possible that the reason your Golf is having the shifting issues is due to a damaged shift solenoid or another transmission electrical connection, so having a professional mechanic come to your location to complete an inspection is the first step in diagnosing and repairing this issue.
