location of glow plug module on 2005 VW Golf 2.0ltr SDI
Hello and Welcome -

My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help you -

Im assuming you mean the engine code to be BKD not BDK....

In that case, if you look into the engine bay - as you stand viewing - the glow plug control module is inside the large black plastic box on the right hand side inner wing - as you view it... Basically the box between the battery and the inner wing.

If there is anything more by all means get back to me and we can carry on...

Kind Rgds, MIKE.

Hi Mike

How can I rate your service as I haven't had an answer since I gave you the vehicle reg number, just in case you didn't receive it HG05 HGO

Many thanks


Hello again Richard -

Im sorry I could not get back to you sooner / when you sent the reg number.

I did get your reply - I assume from your latter message above, that you have received what is a system message - Im sorry about that , they are automatic -I know we are still progressing so don't worry about that at this point -

Back to your can then - My apologies re the engine code, that was my error - the reg number has clarified that for me now - Further - what I pointed out to you before was the location of the Glow plug module fuse - ( 50 amp.. fuse 51 fyi )... but of course its the module you want...Im sorry about the misunderstandings.

That module is under the main fuse box that I mentioned above - so, same place but its well hidden under there.. you need to pull the main fuse box up etc to get at it.. I will to help you ID it - give you an image so that you know what you are looking for , that will help.. for that , click the image I have uploaded below---


Once again - my sincere apologies for the muddle -

I hope all goes ok for you now..

Please do click on the "OK ratings" for me now - and I thank you again..

Best Rgds, MIKE.
