    same problem on 54 reg 1.9 tdi, but told we need new dash and keys reprogramming after light came on and glowplug replaced. £300!! is there a known recall on this model?

    well eventually after a week in the garage and lots of other atempts to get the light to stay off the fault was the wiring lume or some sort of wiring(im a woman so dont know too much! lol), all was replaced and now been running fine since august, luckly ours was still under warentee so we didnt have to pay but was told would of cost a fortune, seems like the golf emissions light is something they need to improve especially on the TDIs.

Hi - did they clear the fault codes after replacing the items? I think the warnings will remain if they didn't do so.

Does the car run OK now?
Let me know. Cheers, D.

SOURCE: 2005 Golf TDI Diesel - EGR "Emissions workshop" fault light

Hi, The EGR valve itself is on a set of flexible pipework - usually stainless steel - which runs between the inlet manifold and the exhaust manifold. The EGR actuator valve is pneumatically / vacuum operated by a solenoid valve, controlled by the ECU ( aka the brane). It's not usual for the EGR valve itself to fail, more likely the solenoid valve or its electrical connector getting dirty. If you google for VAG TDI N75 valve you should get all the info you could possibly ever need :-)

Hope this helps, D.

if its into the front passenger footwell i had this too, inside thwe door closure where the hinges fix is a small rubber hose that funnels water from the sunroof down the apillar in a tube and out, if thats blocked it will run into the car also it could be coming in throught the window seal inside the door and out just inside the door closure area.

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

SOURCE: mk5 golf emission workshop

Your EGR Valve is clogged and has to be changed. I have tried removing, cleaning and replacing it, this only lasts from one hour to one week.

The fault code 'P3103 V157 - Intake Manifold Flap' comes up on the diagnostics, and if you look in your fuse box (next to the battery) you will see a blown 10amp fuse. This is a sure sign that your EGR (or Intake Manifold Flap) is stuck.

This unit costs about £235 - £250.
Good luck mate

2002 VW Golf emission warning light was on. In garage yesterday for repair - part replaced. Light on again to day! Any ideas.


The shop failed to properly diagnose the OBD Codes
or verify the repairs

I would guess there was no road test following any work,
or any scan tool data looked at,on a road test, or driven
long enough to have all the Emission Monitors run

Should have kept it a day & done a better job
