It is probably your preheat that you use in winter to heat up the air before you start your diesel engine
you can usually activate it by turning your ignition half way before start

I have a citroen dispatch and a warning light on the dash keeps coming on, it looks like a shower head, what is this?


Hi, i'm pretty sure that it's the warning light to tell you to drain the water trap on the bottom of the diesel filter.
Hope that helps Matt...

Golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light


When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)
