Title: Aux Heater Fault Code 01491...Failed Glow Plug?
Post by: ChickenBoy on December 16, 2012, 08:21:19 PM
The above fault code came up when aux heater recently tested. Is this likely to be a failed Glow Plug? Is correct replacment Beru0001?

Hello and  [W4]

Beru GH001 may well be what you have fitted however the later Mk2 can be fitted with a ceramic plug with wires attached, the only real way to know is to lower heater then remove covers to expose glow plug.

But also don't just focus on the glow plug. I was also getting Repeated Flame Out errors and (so far) it looks to have been a faulty metering pump causing fuel supply problems.

Once new glow plug fitted will faults require clearing down before it works (Hopefully) again?
