    Not necessarily - it could be a number of different things

    Check your fuse box (F8 in particular) and if you can get on vagcom, get it checked out

    I got the infamous V157 fault which resulted in me replacing the throttle body which resolved the problem!

    The Econ light staying on is just like "safe mode" for the climate control
