If I'm not mistaken in the MK4's (2000 and up vdubs) if your glow plug light is flashing there is a fault in the system you should get it service asap. It won't hurt by driving it like this but it will be harder to start on cold days/mornings.

Lt 35 flashing glow plug light


In my case, the flashing glow plug indicator is caused by me replacing the stop lights with LED bulbs. Therefore, a cause for this flashing indication could be a blown stop light lamp. The test for this condition is; while the glow plug indicator is flashing, press and release the break pedal. This should stop the indicator from flashing. Check your stoplights. Or add a load resistor to your LED lamps if you have fitted these.

Hi I drive a 2006 Vw Transporter 2.8 TDI, the glow plug light


You've probably solved this by now, but just in case... it's your particulates filter clogging up and needs 'regeneration' by VW techs. They take it on the road and with the aid of a laptop on the pax seat, inject fuel into particulates filter and 'burn it out' it'll cost you 200 quid at a vw dealer.

4x4 indicator light flashes continuesly


Hi, on the front axle is the actuator for the free wheel hub. This actuator works with vacuum. You will need to establish if you have sufficient vacuum on the actuator. You should have vacuum on one side of the actuator in 4x2 mode and then the vacuum should change to the other side when 4x4 mode is selected. If your vacuum is fine and the actuator moves far enough, then you should look at the freewheel sensor situated on the front diff. The sensor might be faulty which gives the control unit the wrong info.

Glow plug light flashes on97 tdi sharan


on some diesel engines the glow plugs will cycle after the engine is started. it does sound like your glow plugs are not all working that would cause the hard start and excessive smoke when it does start.
