Engine light after 80 miles!

Post by oldiebut goodie » Tue Jan 14, 2020 4:59 pm

With only 80 miles on the clock have engine management lamp on - have read the error codes - No.2 cylinder glow plug error. Not what is expected of a brand new car!
Booked in with the stealer for a look-see tomorrow. What a pain.

You have my sympathy, absolutely not what you want on a brand new car. Unfortunately faults do occasionally happen, it's just not nice when it's you.

Hope it gets fixed soon.

Fault was the glow plug control module, replaced - 1st time that they have had this on a T-Cross apparently. Courtesy car was a R-Line, strangely it didn't feel the same as the SEL. Nothing that I could pin down other than noticing the rear disc brakes on the the R-Line felt different to the drums on the SEL.

Rear discs depends on the engine. 1.0 TSI 115 PS has them, other engines do not
