You have a few options:

1.) Don't do anything. Once the computer sees the engine run normally for a few cycles, it will automatically clear the code.

2.) Connect a scan tool to the OBDI port to clear the codes manually. Local auto parts stores will often perform scan tool diagnostics free of charge.

3.) If you want to remove the code quickly without any special tools, just disconnect the battery and leave it disconnected for a while. (How long varies for different cars, as some engine PCM's have capacitors that hold a charge for a short while after losing battery power.)

I agree with the people above disconnect the battery cables and pump the brakes like ten or eleven times and it will reset your codes. AutoZone should be able to clear your codes for you or a shop may do it for a reasonable price.

I HAVE A 2001 VW JETTA TDI. THE ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON. I HAD IT CHECKED WITH COMPUTER AND IT HAS A CIRCUIT A OF THE GLOW PLUG CODE. ANY REMEDY'S?


After about every 100Kms one or more glow plugs burn out. Think of them like toaster elements which ignite the fuel on start.
The recommended solution is to replace all 4 at once as the labor for changing one is the same as for changing all 4.
If you change just 1 (and you would have to be able to figure out which one it is - not easy) the other 3 will follow (failing) in a few weeks afterward.

2001 VW Jetta GL TDI will not start. I checked the battery, and it is fine. Engine turns over when I turn the key, but it seems like no fuel is getting to the engine.


If you have blue/grey smoke coming out of the tailpipe, you are getting fuel, you can also check to see fuel if you pull back the braided cover on the fuel line (left front side of engine compartment). If you see smoke, check the glow plug relay (180) under the dash.

2000 Jetta TDI: How do I change spark plugs on 2000 VW jetta 2.0...


You're in the TDI (diesel) solutions section so it uses glow plugs.
If it's a petrol engine 2.0L then it would be accessible above and below intake manifold using a swivel spark plug deep socket.

I have a vw bora 1.9 tdi and the heater plug light has started flashing and the car says engine workshop


There are a number of different causes of this problem. Check all glow plugs. Check glow plug relay. If both are ok....This may seem unusual...Check the brake light switch situated at brake pedal. A faulty brake light switch will cause the glow plug light to flash
Good luck with it

How do I gt to the 3 glow plugs in my cooling/heating unit??? (2001 Jetta TDi)


They are absolutely pulling your leg if they're telling you that you have 7 glow plugs. It sounds like they don't have a clue about TDI's.
Everything you ever wanted or needed to know about TDI's can be found at www.tdiclub.com You should even be able to find a knowledgeable guy in your area that would be willing to take a look at your car. These guys know their stuff. Better than any VW dealer on the planet.
Read this thread - you might be able to figure something out on your own: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?p=749854

Are you having problems with your heating/cooling? OR did you get a check engine light and found out about P0380 when you brought it to the shop?
You more than likely have an issue with your glow plug harness. The connectors on the glow plug harness (where they plug into your glow plugs) prob need to be cleaned. Read this thread too:
