Despite what you may read from other comments....The glow plug light is
simple a multi function warning light and IS among many othed
things in fact used to warn of brake light and brake light switch
failure. Therefore it can NOT be treated as glow plug problems only.
I have worked on V.W for many years and have encountered this problem many times. You should get the OBD codes read. This will reveal the exact problem...and there may be more than one
You can contact your V,W agents if you wish and check to see if I am correct.
Best of luck

check to see if your brake lights are working.usually the stop light switch fails and is the cause.but before buying a new one check the stop light fuse.its a common problem with a simple fix.hope this helps.

Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.

This sounds like the ignition modulator going out. Don't let these places tell you that themodulator is either bad or good. They are wrong. I just went through this with a Dodge van and it would run me to the stroe and then not staret up for an hour and finally and luckily it gave completely out. You want to buy the whole distributer from a wrecking yard from 30 to 50 bucks. These modulators are little half moon shaped plastic coated boxes under the distributar cap. That is if your truck has a distributer cap.
If so then just buy the whole thing at the wrecking yard and when you gethome just remove themodulator and replace your old one. The dealership tried to get me fo0r 500.00 for one of these things.I told them where they could put there 500. The auto parts stores want 200.00 So believe me if you can get the used distributer then do so. They will not sell just the modulater. Also take note to check the distributer at the wrecking yard to see if it is there. These sell good on ebay too and a lot of steeling going on Good Luck, The Raz
