    My car lost its mind

    I was waiting at the lights in my 1.9 TDi auto and when I pulled away the glow plug light was flashing and the car was in a weird kind of super limp mode where the throttle didn't respond. I stopped and switched off and then on again and all returned to normal.

    is this anything I should be worried about?
    Sliver 2000 1.9 Tdi AJM Se Auto Saloon cooking sherry but with CD Changer and now Bluetooth audio connection and boot based Tartan blanket. Now runs at 90 degrees like a good 'un. Quality Cambelt kit fitted - next on list is control arm set.
    Silver 2000 2.5 V6 Tdi Auto Quattro Saloon drowned on 7th August 2012 RIP - but she lives on in the many,many donor parts she gave so that others may live...

    Sadly your car is haunted and will require a professional exorcist.

    But have you been able to scan it for codes?

    Check the fault codes however my gut instinct tells me your brake light switch is faulty hence the computer is confused !
