The glow plug relay is generally in the engine bay, to clarify are you saying it's a 2006 Volkswagen Caddy?Can you tell me exactly what the problem is I will help you diagnose the glow plug system it's very rarely the relay.I need to know what year it is because there were a couple of different glow plugs setups, but generally it's a glow plug problem it's the actual plugs or the glow plug harness, and there are other things that can make the glow plug light on the dashboard flash that aren't even related to the glow plugs if that is the issue as well.Can you please describe the issue you're having with your vehicle I would love to help you diagnose the glow plug system rather than just throwing a relay at at that's not likely to fix it.

Good to hear, however Volkswagen 4 Cylinder Diesels really don't require the glow plugs to start when cold, they help but if your vehicle actually won't start, unless you were in like Siberia or something it's probably not the problem.Would you like to give me the fault code number?
