Default Oilhammer, others in St. Louis with Vag Com.

Hey all, finally got my first CEL with the car on the way home from work last night. It was about 25 degrees, so I got a good glow plug cycle. About 30 seconds of running and the light came on. Classic glow plug circuit.

Stopped and did a restart, and the second time before the CEL came on, there were three clicks from a relay on the fuse panel, acompanied by slight dimming of the dash lights. After the third one, the relay quit clicking, and the CEL came on. Since then, I haven't had a repeat of the clicking relay, but the CEL comes on each time after about 30 seconds.

No drivability issues at all, thankfully.

Didn't have a chance to do any diagnosis last night, but I'll check fuses and the GP resistance this evening. Oilhammer, or anybody else possible have time to do a scan for me this weekend? Hopefully, it will just be to confirm diagnosis and clear the CEL, but all the same. Oilhammer, if you have the time, I'd love to check/adjust the injection timing as well.
