    the fault on the above is a faulty earth wire in the EU UNIT,which have to be replaced or repair.I had it repaired and engine system reset.

    what year is the vehicle? if it is still under warranty then you may take it back to the dealer in which you bought it from.

Unlightly anything wrong with injector pump.

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!

No glow plug light on my 1997 v/w golf diesel will not start . can not find fuse link


Check and see if there is power at the glow plugs, with the ignition switched on and when the engine is cold.
If there is no power, check in-line fuse which is on the main lead to the glow plugs. Also check heater relay...on main fuse board.

The stuff that you replaced could have an effect on the starting of the vehicle. Take the diesel pump and injectors for calibration this should solve the problem.

Golf 1.9 tdi match


they are giving you bad advice... that light is basically normal ... your glow plug light... if the motor starts ok ... it's nothing to worry about .... unless i've missed something and you are saying the light stays on... basically with a diesel you turn the key on... wait for the glow plug light to go out ... then start it.

believe it or not the drivers door switch as something to do with the glow plug relay, good chance diesel pump timing is out too as this would cause the car to overrun
