    Passat flashing glowplug lamp and Start/Stop error

    Hi all and I hope everyone is surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, or whatever it is supposed to be called.

    I was gently driving along this evening after a short 5 or 6 mile trip when the glowplug light started flashing.

    It carried on flashing and "Start Stop Error" was briefly displayed on screen.

    No other symptoms and it seemed to clear when I restarted but I've not checked much.

    Any ideas? I'm just hoping it not the EGR.

    It's a 2012 Passat BlueMotion 1.6 TDI with 98000 on the clock and it's not had the dieselgate mod done.

    Thanks everyone.

    You need a code read to know what is wrong.

    Yup. Should have mentioned it's booked in for a coderead on Tuesday. Just wondered if there is anything that springs to mind.

    If someone books a CAYC engined car in with the MIL on I can almost guarantee it is the EGR valve. The 2 litre is not much better and I have two in today with the problem.

    Right. It started fine this morning and drove ~16 mile round trip to a man with VCDS with nothing untoward happening, apart from an idiot nearly pulling out in front of me. There was one fault listed: Mass Air Flow during Regeneration too High.

    He's cleared the fault (for now at least), so fingers crossed.

    You need to post the error not the component?

    As suggested: You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    I don't recognise that, did he give you a printed report?

    I have 36 error codes for Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor (G70).

    I would guess its from that description.

    VAG Error Code: 005215/4805
    EOBD II Error Code: P145F

    Fault Location:
    Mass Air Flow during Regeneration too High

    Possible Cause:
    Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.

    Unknown Symptom, Cause or Solution.
