    Glow plug light started flashing on 09 A3

    Hi , just had my third replacement A3 2.0ltr sport rom Sir Arnold clark and low and behold four days of driving short distances the glow plug light has started flashing . The car runs fine as far as i can tell the only thing that did happen was the speed warning system stuck on meaning driving away at any speed set it off.This was rectified by switching the car off at the ignition and back on but the glow plug light still flashed intermittent any help you can give would be appreciated i dont want to give this one back as its gorgeous

    Hi mate, the glow plug light is a fault which does not directly effect emissions currently. It could be for example intake flap fault, but it could also be countless others. You need to get her fault code read which will point you in the right direction.

    Cardio did your speed warning system play up aswell as the coil light flashing?

    No, thats the code I gave you it maybe states, but needs a proper full log done instead of just the 5 numbers.
