Check thefuses and wiring of the glow plug circuit. check for corrosion on any of the contacts and while there, check each one with an ohm meter to make sure none have burned out.

I have a 2003 VW tdi - the glow plug light is consistently coming on. I have had them replaced several times over the last year. What can I do to fix this problem long term?

Check your relay and wiring bridge. Either could be faulty and throwing a glow plug code. Start by diagnosing the relay since this is the cheaper of the two. Go to the forums and look up glow plug and you will get an excellent writeup on exactly how to do this.

Jetta diesel 2003 TDI the coil light comes on while driving and the cruise control does not or stops working. When the car goes over a bump the light goes out. Maybe unconnected but the remote key unlock...

Get some electronic parts cleaner from radio shack or a electronic parts store, remove each glow plug terminal and spray liberally and reinstall with dielectric grease, this may not work, hate to say that, but you may have to replace the wiring loom to the glow plugs, they are not the best quality wires, they other issues may be related to corrosion too, try the cleaner and dielectric grease has solved a lot of problems for me in various cars. good luck

Engine check light on, code P0380, glow plug circuit. What to check.

first check glow plugs resistance values, sorry but i cannot tell you what they are supposed to be at offhand.

if the values are correct then you may need to replace the wiring harness which connects to the glow plugs.

more likely to be the plugs themselves though

Depending where you live if the temp. is over 45 degrees F the glow plugs shouldn't be needed for the engine to start. Have you ever had the check engine light come on? Your problem is probably not in the glow plugs.

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.
