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.

Glow plug light wont go out


Your diesel vehicle is equipped with glow plugs, and also with a Glow Plug Light that will either come on and stay on, or flash or blink when a fault is detected by the ECU (engine management unit). When the Glow Plug Light comes on, the ECU stores information about the condition that has caused it to come on.4 Jan 2016

98 ford windstar...service engine light comes on..then it begins to flash, when flashing the power seems to drop, it runs very rough. when coming to a stop or slow turn it may cut off. occasionaly when...


There is only thing will cause the check engine light to flash when you are driving and that is your catalyst converter is over heating and that is very dangerous if you continue to drive the van and the check engine light is flashing there is a very real possibility your van can catch on fire. What causes the catalyst converter to get hot is that raw fuel is being dumped into the exhaust system. That system can get so hot that it will glow cherry red it’s easier to see it at night. Please make sure and are expecting your problem correctly and if you are take it to a shop because you have more than one problem and the van is not safe to drive

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.
