Could be a charging system problem (causing the flashing on / off). But then again, it started / cranked again for you.
The only way to know is to start with pulling / scanning for Trouble Codes.
The stored codes may or may not have to deal with what is currently going on. If the symptoms repeat while a VW Shop is looking at the vehicle, they
will probably be able to find the cause. If the Symptoms do not exist while the car is being looked at, then this intermittent Electrical Gremlin can be
difficult to catch.
You can check the battery and fuse box connections (on top of the battery) yourself. Problems there can cause problems in the car.
