    Check the MAF as it is generally the first point of problem. iwould suspect the ECU may be at fault as well hence the glow plug light. Best bet is find some one close to you with vagcom and check it. there seems to be a number of people on the site with it and are up north so you should not need to look far.

    Sorry not to much help.

    Welcome any way

    the coil light also works as an engine management warning light if it is flashing when you are driving along it is indicating a fault.

    the general fault when this happens is a fault with the brake light switch.

    get someone to check the operation of your brake lights as a starting point.

    the bake light switch has two curcuits one operates the lights the second tells the engine ecu you are braking.

    if the two curcuits are not working together it indicates in the form of the flashing coil light.

    it MAY also give you a small running fault in that the ecu retards the engine when you are braking.

    worth a try for the price they are.

    matt
