Sounds like the MIL (malfunction indicator light). Could be lots of thing's, what kind of car have you got. If you get it on to a diagnostic machine it will give you a few indications.

Some times it dosent show a fault or MIL light on, with the MAF sensor down. It could also be a lambda, shagged plugs, temp sensor, etc. Just too many things to start with replaceing part's that it could be. Some newer 1.4 and 1.6 also have a MAP sensor problems. Also, what type of car is it.

What's the warranty's on coil packs?

My emission light came on also recently and Im wondering if its the coil pack or l lambda sensor, if so are they covered under warranty? The car is not even 2 years old, its not running uneven or anything it makes a but of a whine on turnover but doesn't sound serious, (FSI engine). Im not driving it until I get it looked at anyhow.
