    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?

    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 !
