Hi folks. I'm somewhere remote so not near a garage and could do with a bit of advice. Driving my 2010 5.1 just now, the coil light has started to flash yellow (which I gather could be glow plugs?). Has anyone had this? and what is likely cause? I managed to get hold of a reader and it showed 'DTC not found' - but in 'pending' I found P0124 which apparently is throttle position sensor. I was told brake light switch failure can cause this but have checked them and they come on-off ok.

The van seems to drive fine by the way, - but should I continue to drive it? I desperately need to do about 200 miles. Advice much appreciated 🙂

The coil light flashes for all codes, not just glow plugs... I don't know why VAG do that on Diesels. I don't trust your code reader on this, it needs scanning with VCDS.
