Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
The glowplug works normal when you turn ignition on9 it comes on then goes out like it should but then when your driving say about 40 secs later it will come back onand flash, the car starts ok even in morning in this cold weather. you got any ideas please
Remarkably, this problem is often associated with a faulty brake light switch down at the pedal!
It happened to my '97 Sharan the other day whilst driving along, and the merest tap on the brake pedal with my left foot stopped the glow plug light flashing.
Posh folk sometimes replace the switch; I would suggest checking the connecting wires down there first :-)
Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
