When hot the plugs aren't needed, when cold the plugs come on as they should, but when temperature is somewhere in between the system telling the plugs to come on isn't working? Does this sound reasonable?
Maybe some temperature sensor giving bad readings?
Never had that problem myself, so I'm really just speculating.

Believe it or not the plugs only come on under 5°C. I have been thinking about trying a different ECU to see if it makes a difference... If only Q5 was out the Allroad would be gone. New Allroad still too expensive "Det veit du val"

Is there some other system that helps with cold starts and also causes the glow symbol to show? Or is it only the newer 180 hp that does without glow plugs over 5º?
New Allroad starts at around £56' for the 2.7TDI, I take it the price is much lower in the UK?

over 5°C there is no preheating of the diesel. Mine is 2004 don't think there is much difference between earlier models apart from the camshafts on early 2.5 TDI's had excessive wear. A change in 2003 fixed that I'm told. 2.7TDI Quattro Tip is 800,000 NOK for a properly speced one.
perhaps it's air in the fuel lines?
