[Vwdiesel] HELP! '01 Golf annoyingly persistent codes

With the glow plug light, every problem I've ever had dealt with the  
harness.  I can clean up the harness and keep the light off for 6  
months or so. Last winter, I had one glow plug actually die, and I  
replaced all 4.  The light hasn't been back on since.

Check the glow plug troubleshooting thread at TDIclub.  He lists every  
part of the system and how to troubleshoot/repair it.  http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?p=749854

It's either the relay, the plugs, or the harness.  There isn't much  
else to go wrong.

As for the other two problems, let us know how they turn out. :-)
