ok audi gurus!... need your help..

this mourning i turned on my A4 97 1.8L and it was shaking, i thought it could just be the cold weather affecting it. I drove it down the road about a block and the check engine light starts flashing then turns solid orange. I took the car back home and pop the hood.

Look at the oil dipstick and i was low on oil. So i added more oil until it was at normal. Turned on the car and everything seems to be normal agian, no shaking/vibration. BUT the check engine light is still on? is it a matter of reseting the light?? or do i have a bigger problem....

thanks in advance

[rs4] sounds like the ignition control module, get your car VAGged, to verify, but just from the description of the shaking and the flashing CEL I'm about 90%certain it's the ICM.

low oil would have brought up a low oil light right [confused]
