    Car wont start? Warning light wont go out!

    My glow plug warning light will not go out!

    Its in a solid state and has been taking up to 10 minutes to go out previously.

    I have replaced all 4 glow plugs and the battery.

    When the car is warm then it will go off instantly

    Would replacing the control plug relay be next?

    I have had it scanned 3 times now.

    They indicate back to glow plug failure but the glow plugs changed around 2 months ago and battery 1 month ago. Brand new parts of course.

    Audi cleared the error which made it work fine for a day or two and then it gets increasingly worse.

    I sometimes sit in the car for 10-15 minutes before the light will click off itself.

    The glowplug/injector loom are known to fault, swap this & retest, then look at other options.

    Is this a big job?

    Something i can get second hand?

    I called audi but they wouldnt give me any part number for anything.

    their words were "if we arent making money on it then we cant give out the information"

    Edit : is this what you mean

    Buy new from audi, 2nd hand guarantees nothing.

    I'm not saying its this, but its logical thing to look at.

    Yes I agree with audi, they are there to earn money & sell parts at the end of the day, they have to pay salaries for these guys & we don't pay them for information, so I think they're justified in there stance.

    That part isnt second hand that i sent the link to.

    Audi would probably charge double that for the above part

    Regardless, considering the importance of the part, I would buy new from audi, do as you see fit.

    Car wont start? Warning light wont go out!

    Give Audi UK a call & give them your Car reg to see if the injector recall has been done, if it hasn't, under the circumstances they may pick the car up on a trailer & do the injectors & loom FOC - 0800 699 999
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....

    what glow plugs did you use when you replaced them? A good brand? eBay specials?

    I used Bosch ones. Which were reccomended by audi.

    There are no known faults/recalls with my engine audi UK have said.
