Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf
If your were in Minnesota, I would suggest that the original problem sounds like it was a case of fuel gelling in the lines. That would cause the symptoms you describe. Change the fuel filter and fill it with a good diesel additive that deices fuel. Make sure you add some to the tank as well. It is always a good idea to add a bit at each fill in the winter, since the possibility of a bad mixture (too much #2 diesel or water in the fuel) is better in the winter and more critical to the running of your vehicle.
As to the second problem, your faulty regulator on the alternator may have caused a defect in the glow plug relay. Check online for one, the ones at the dealer are a bit more expensive.
