« on: 04 September 2013, 14:34 »
My Mk6 gt tdi decided to show the little orange light on the dash last night, any ideas how to cure this without having to spend £££ as its going back to the dealer in part ex soon, should of even been gone by now, only done 15'000 miles, doesnt seem to be any loss in power, noise from the exhaust..

It amazes me users in here with a GTI posting in a TDI section.  :grin:

You need to get your motor scanned for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them.

I had similar problems a few months ago.
Light was on and car drove fine, anyway it turned out it was the auxiliary electric coolant pump.
After googling it seems to be extremely common.
Get it scanned first.
