Default Flashing Glow Plug Indicator

My Glow Plug Indicator was flashing yesterday (2001 Golf). I replaced a burnt out brake light, now the Glow Plug flashing is gone. Really???

It does seem a bit odd, but that is how it lets you know you have a light out. There are a number of things that cause the GP light to flash, but bake lights is the most common.

I've learned so much from my mistakes I'm thinking of making some more.
