The glow plug relays are located on the right front shock tower. Remove the cover and you will see two relays If I remember I think they are round, but not sure.
Please let me know how you make out and if there is anything else that I might be able to help you with.

Your glow plugs are going bad and need to be replaced. This is a sign to you that they are basically running all the time because they dont know that thye are heated up and the car is running. Common problem with diesels

The Glow plug coming on, and the car going into limp home mode, is a default safety feature that occurs when the engine management system picks up any kind error message from the many sensors now used on the car.
I've found the glow plug light problem with my Jag, it was the air filter. Apparently Jaguar servicing change it every 3rd service (not a good idea). I changed mine, it is a new car. I had the EPR valve cleaned and a major diagnostic carried out by a local garage (who had the Jag diagnostic software). It turns out I also need a new Turbo; the actuator is sticking (£759.00 plus 3 hours labour). But hey, the main limp home mode problem is fixed and I can drive my Jag confident it will accelerate when press the gas.

You have to replace the defective glow plug. You can test the glow plug without the test light. Just put a wire on the bolted end of the glow plug and connect this to the battery (+) terminal. Then, put a wire around the body of the glow plug and connect this to the battery (-) negative terminal. Hold at this position for a minute or less. Good glow plug will heat up.
As far as the wiring schematics, I will just describe
it. Your ignition switch is connected to the positive
terminal of the battery by way of the fuse in the fuse
box. From the switch it goes to a timing relay before
going to the glow plug terminals. The glow plug body
is screw mounted to the engine block which serves
as the negative terminal. So, as you switch your
ignition, it heats up the glow plug enough to give a
combustion of the atomized fuel in the cylinder piston
of your car causing it to run.

what voltage u getting ?. did it just stop and then not restart. if its getting fuel and glow plugs are working the next two items id look at is the cam shaft and crank shaft position sencors. also make sure ur battery is in good condition, so starter motor is turning fast enough to build up the correct pressure on the rail.
