If your vehicle is fitted with a diesel particulate filter which is not to be confused with an ordinary catalytic convertor it will need to have what is known as a regeneration on a motorway or dual carriageway in third or fourth gear drive at a constant speed of 50-80 kph keeping your rpm between 2350-3000 for approx. ten to fifteen minutes this tells the ecu to pre inject fuel and post inject fuel to make your exhaust gases hotter to burn out all the deposits in your diesel particulate filter if you don't have a dpf
you may need a new catalytic convertor
or you can buy a solution that you add to your fuel to clean them out but find out if you have a dpf first because if you don't you need the solution for cleaner emissions if you do you need the solution for your dpf to burn hotter
hope this helps

    It's not the DPF but the glow plug flashes then the lambda sensor (EGR) light comes on. I've replaced the air mass flow sensor, but is not the cause of the problem. the

SOURCE: 02 VW Jetta TDI with ALH engine glow plug

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

SOURCE: MY GLOW PLUG LIGHT IS FLASHING IN MY DASH BOARD VW

Despite what you may read from other comments....The glow plug light is simple a multi function warning light and IS among many othed things in fact used to warn of brake light and brake light switch failure. Therefore it can NOT be treated as glow plug problems only.
I have worked on V.W for many years and have encountered this problem many times. You should get the OBD codes read. This will reveal the exact problem...and there may be more than one
You can contact your V,W agents if you wish and check to see if I am correct.
Best of luck

What is spring sign showing on dash of seat Ibiza sport 1.6


hi Marc

SEAT Ibiza glow plugs heating warning light - your SEAT Ibiza is equipped with an automatic glow plug system. The indicator lamp lights up while the glow plugs are preheating. If the engine fails to start immediately, the glow plugs have not finished preheating. In this case, keep the clutch pedal depressed (or keep your foot on the brake if your vehicle has an automatic gearbox) until the engine starts. (applies to diesel cars only)

Seat ibiza 1.4 tdi reference sport 2007 glow plug light flashing on dash. what could be wrong with it.


Sometimes if you don't wait until light goes off before cranking it will cause a flash code...Disconnect battery to reset system..If it comes back on replace glow plugs...Best idea is have a Tech diagnose it if the reset test doesn't solve your problem...Save time and headaches....
