Trouble shooting procedure glow plugs '93 VW Golf 1.9 diesel


What you need to do is make sure the key is off, remove glow plugs, hook a set of jumper leads to your battry, put the negative lead around the threaded part of the plug, hold the + jumper lead to the top of the plug where the power rail bolts on. DO NOT TOUCH glow plugs as they will heat up hot & fast. If the light comes on 6 - 8 sec thats how long you need to hold the power on. The tip of the plug should be nice & red hot in this time. Repeat for all plugs & see the diffrence If more than 2 are dead (no red heat) or noticably slower than the others It will be very difficult to start & the plugs should be replaced. AGAIN carefull not to get burned.

2002 VW Golf TDI - Live in northern ontario - -20's with wind chill. When I first drove the car this morning - error code (looks like a clock) on upper right portion of speedometer gauge. Just flashes on ...


Classic 109 relay failure.

Relay is for the Glow Plug system.

This relay provides the power to all of a TDI's engine-based electronics.

If the glow plug light comes on intermittently by itself, check your brake lights too.

A burned-out bulb will cause the glow plug indicator light to come on. Sometimes flashing is caused by a bad Brake Lamp Switch on the Brake Pedal. It was updated for free by VW .

If you can see it under the knee panel, the Brake Lamp Switch body should be Metallic Green....if it is Purple or Black it need updated.

By boeinga1 on Nov 17, 2010 2001 VW Diesel Golf TDI. Car started no problem. Drove to gas station. Stopped for gas. glow plug light wouldn't come on, engine wouldn't start, engine turning but not starting....


i think glow plug replacement needed. ever used starting fluid in cold to start?try this, next time no start, cycle your key and let the light come on, wait till it goes off, turn key again until light goes off, if you have to do this more than 3 times, and it runs fine, replace the glow plugs only then. thank you for choosing fixya.com!

Engine Maintainance light on


This could most likely be one of 2 things, 1. if it is your maintainance light, it is probably one of your sensors, possibly the mass air filter sensor, oil pressure sensor, and 2. If it is a diesel engine and its the glow plug light, you would need to replace your glow plug relay because it telling you that the glow plugs are still on when the engine is running, which you should take care of asap before you have to replace the glow plugs themselves.
