When the glow plug light keeps flashing.Thats telling you that you have a fault with one of the sensors.Take it to a garage and get it checked out with a diagnostic scan.

SOURCE: i have a vw bora 1.9 tdi and the heater plug light

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

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

Engine light and emmisions worshop on dash


You will need to have another code scan done. A faulty glow plug will certainly show up on a scan, but should NOT bring on the engine MIL light. Erase all faults showing at present. This should extinguish the engine light. Thin start and stop engine a number of times until the light comes back on. This will re boot on-board computer. Do another scan and the fault should show up. If possible do a live reading, paying close attention to the (oxygen sensors) lambda units
Best of luck

Hi,
I may be wrong but I think it can only be done via the on-board diagnostics system.
You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.

On some models the reminder can be reset using the buttons on the dashboard, but none of my cars have been that new!

Hope this helps a bit.D
