Glow plugs 101 ***Ver. 2.0*** - TDIClub Forums

How to sort your glow plug problems, you probably need to replace a couple but go through the guide.

Replace the left front wheel sensor.

As to the comfort module.
Your battery is dead or was cranked till the voltage went to low. Charge or replace the battery. A fully charged battery is 12.6-12.8v not 12v. A battery that reads less than 12.2 is a dead or discharged battery. Clear the codes and see what comes back. Those are the ones you’ll need to deal with.

Low fuel light is probably a dead or sticking fuel lending unit. Pull the back seat, pop the access panel and change it out or clean it.

Beetle clusters go bad get the part # from the back of the cluster and find a replacement, junkyard, partout or eBay. They are a 10 minute job to replace.
You’ll need to get an immo delete for any new cluster. Make sure the numbers are the same a gasser and a diesel are different as are an auto and a stick.

Change out the signal bulb or clean the contacts in the assembly.

The brake light should go away after the sensor replacement unless your fluid is low or the parking brake handle isn’t sitting on the little switch straight.

Sounds like all little stuff. On another note it would be a shame to get all that stuff sorted and break a timing belt. When was the belt done last and by who? Did they use quality parts and replace everything? Belt, water pump, 2 rollers and tensioner and stretch bolts? Did they fine tune the timings with vcds? The timing belt is the priority item, all that other stuff is annoying but easily fixable. If the belt breaks or strips teeth you’ll need at a minimum a new head.
