The orange coil light flashes when driving but it starts and runs fine. What does this mean?

The coil may not have totally failed but something in the ignition system is near being out of specification. Have the trouble codes pulled. Any Advance Auto ro Atuo Zone will do this for free.

Diesel TDi?

The Brake Lights are tied into the Glow Plug (Coil) Light. Check your brake lights, one or all your bulbs might be out. If all, check brake light switch.
