serious serious running problems !!!

4 posts in this topic

confused.gif i have a 1999 passat 1.9 tdi 110 bhp with approx 130k miles and engine code afn. yesterday, whilst driving on the motorway the car glow plug light started to flash. After a little while driving in limp mode and the car not revving over a certain amount the car just completely conked out. Upon starting the car again it would with no problems, the glow plug light would be flashing but it would idle fine, but when you'd set off the car would just knock itself off again. This problem occurs intermittently and at other times you could drive around town in it for 10 mins or so and the problem re-appears spontaneously. Also, upon starting the flashing glow plug light only begins after the car has been started for about 30 seconds or so.

IF ANYBODY ELSE HAS EXPERIENCED SOMETHING LIKE THIS OR IF YOU CAN HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM EVEN BY SHEDDING A LITTLE LIGHT ON IT WOULD BE MORE THAN GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Ask someone in the VAG-COM section to scan you car for faults, The flashing glowplug light means a fault is stored (or the brake lights are not working)

Post the code here and this will help us narrow it down. 169144-ok.gif
