The actuator only opens when maximun set boost has been achieved. the actuator lets exhaust gas bypass the turbo once it has reached its pressure. check for vacuum leaks, cracks in the intake piping.

SOURCE: exhaust filter
Particulate filters are self cleaning. If the warning light comes on, you will need to take a long drive every so often to get the filter hot (It is a built-in part of the exhaust system.) Some models will also dump extra fuel int the system to help ignite the soot buildup and assist to "clean' the filter.
You need do nothing else; just get it really hot for a while each time the warning comes up. If you ignore it and do only short trips, it will clog up and need replacement.

The first thing i would check is the Glow Plug Relay. Depending on your engine there should be (2 solenoids, or just one) sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. (right bank of engine that is) If you have 2 of them one should be smaller and it is the one furthest to the rear of the engine. It controls power to your glow plugs for cold start up. When you turn the key to the on position the 2 larger wires should both have power. When the ignition is off only one wire should have power. Check this if you do both these tests and only one wire has power with key on or off then you need to make sure that the key switch is sending power to the solenoid. Do this by checking the smaller wire with key off. It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. If this is good and test one is bad then the relay is bad. Note This is not true for the larger realy that sits furthest foward on the engine. The bigger one. This test will not work for it but it controls your intake heater. On another note: This is a timed circut and will "kick out" after about 1-2 minutes. In otherwords it does not stay on all the time that key switch is on it will for for about 1-2 minutes then shut off! Next would be your injectors are getting weak or bad and even your HPOP could be getting weak. or glow plugs in engine are out, In otherwords there are alot of possibilities causing your problems If you are getting a misfire code for your injectors then you may have some weak or inop injectors. Any way this will give you a pretty easy test for the most common failure which is the Glow plug relay. About 35-40 bucks at your local auto parts house.
