Exhaust Control System - Fault

Post by Sdot » Mon Sep 28, 2020 6:42 pm


Last week I had my kodiaq serviced at the local dealership. All good, just a rear wiper replacement. Then 6 days later I start the car and an amber warning symbol appears on my dashboard - exhaust control system fault.

Being a Sunday the service department was closed but I managed to get them to check my car today. After about 45 minutes I’m told that one of my glow plugs has failed.

I’m just wondering though as a glow plug issue has it’s own warning on the dashboard and it is not showing that - only exhaust control system.

Perhaps someone on this forum has had any similar experience with the fault that’s showing in my car. I genuinely expected them to say it was a DPS issue...

Thanks in advance :)
