Default ABS/Traction Control light

I have a 2004 Jetta GLS with 125K miles and standard transmission. Just had the clutch completely replaced. After I picked the car up, I ran some errands, turning the car off and on a few times. Then the ABS/traction control light came on. I tested the brakes, which seem fine, and accelerated on some ice, with no flashing light like usual, so that's a concern. Came home and used the VAG software - no fault codes came up. Went back to mechanic, who said the clutch and this new issue are not related, but he checked my wiring, checked for fault codes (none found), and took it for a test drive. Said he did make the flashing light come on. Turned the warning light off. It came back the next day.

My questions:

- Could this be related to the clutch being replaced?
- Is this something I should do something about, or just live with the light on?

I just dropped almost $1K on the clutch and really don't want to have to pay for more work so soon.

Thanks!

Its unusual the VAG software didn't pickup any error codes. You could try and disconnect the battery cables and hold them together to discharge any capacitors in the system then reconnect and drive it around and see if it shows again.
