Don't replace them unless you are having a problem with the motor... why waste money ?

Is this the glow plug light? maybe they might need changed for a new set, i know that on diesels they normally go off after 10-15 seconds dependant on temperature.

    if you go onto ebay they will cost around £20-30 delivered for the 4 of them, they are easyish to change, or if you have a local motor factors try them, they are usually cheaper, i usually ring round some first.

    Hope this helps martin

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!

Glow plugs come on only after the engine starts. on power when light in dash is on.WTF? what could cause this? the plugs stay powered as long as the engine is running???? they should only be on for a short...


had this before and i have always ended up rewiring the control unit feed ,i tried every which way to find the fault and then i gave up blaming the fancy computer controlled software .I just ran a feed to the unit from the ignition switch to turn it on when ignition is turned on in extreme cases i have fitted a push button type switch on the dash ignition controlled that operates the relay for the glow plugs direct .

Glow light flashes


Correct - the glow light flashing is an indication that there is fault. Often this is associated with a blown brake bulb or faulty brake switch.

Golf mk5 tdi sometimes wont start.


You didn't say how you got round this problem when it happened - did you keep on trying or go away and come back later? I'm thinking you may have an immobiliser issue with the ignition key not being read correctly by the detector coil in the steering column. Did you use the same key on both occasions, and did you open the car remotely or manually?
