Read the owner's manual on how to use your trip computer.  You set a speed 
warning indicator.

The check engine light is not something with the onboard diag screen but 
something with the OBDII system...most likely something emissions related.

You'll need someone with a VAG-COM, HEX-COM, or any of the VWAG code 
readers to find what the car is complaining about.
My 2000 car came on recently, it was a simple $5 issue with a broken vacuum 
line and a missing bolt on the secondary air combination valve.
