Ahoy,

I was out in my motor last night and the engine suddenly went into limp mode with no turbo and the glow plug light started flashing. Restarting the car seems to have resolved the issue and the turbo now kicks in but I would like to get to the bottom of the problem.

On VWs this is a common issue and can be caused by an intermittent problem with the brake switch.

Does anyone know if a local garage will be able to retrieve any error codes from the cars computer? I am loathe to go to VW because
it is £70 just for them to say hello but I am happy to pay a local garage a few quid for 5 mins work.
