Hi . Good question ,this is a system that VW Audi did that was very misunderstandingfor many VW Audi drivers they thjought there was a problem with the brake lighting systemglow plug system ??But in fact this was for the driver to know that the management system had encountered a general problem with the whole system ,from a glow plug failure to a engine control issue like avehicle speed sensor ,TPS , pedal sensor, etc ,etc . What you have to do is get youe VW hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes .From the malfunction code you will then know what has to be checked ,repaired or replaced . Ones the problem area has been repaired then the flashing glow plug light will stay off after clearing the codes . Now if needed please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,Not rating or a bad rating does not constitute a refund.If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .Kind regards Greg.
