The glow plug light in VW cars are telling you you have a fault not with the glow plugs but with the engine management.Get a garage to do a diagnostic check for you.

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)

Glow light flashing


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.

Golf 1.9 tdi match


they are giving you bad advice... that light is basically normal ... your glow plug light... if the motor starts ok ... it's nothing to worry about .... unless i've missed something and you are saying the light stays on... basically with a diesel you turn the key on... wait for the glow plug light to go out ... then start it.

Coil light flashing


Hi Robert
From the brief description of your problem I'm guessing your vehicle is a Diesel? as the light you refer to sounds like the Glow Plug warning. When you turn on the ignition from cold the light comes on for around 5 to 10 seconds and then you start engine Yes?
If the light is coming on after vehicle is warmed up the glow plugs will upset the combustion and ruin your performance, so I would be looking at glow plug timer fault.
Hope this FixYa's problem!

Engine management fault


this is going to sound nuts but its true.if your brakelight switch is defective that light will flash.
see if you brake lights are working.if it is automatic trans you will notice the shifter will not always release when you depress brake pedal.
if its not brakelight switch get it autoscaned with a VAG.com
