SOURCE: engine management light is on

The car will need to be put on a diagnosic machine to point out exactly why the engine has gone into limp mode, but if it is still running it could just be down to a sensor, Hope this helps

Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize.

SOURCE: cant find the diesel pump relay

it does not have a electric fuel pump the fuel pump is mechanical and is driven by the timing chain, it is a 2 stage pump 1st stage is the low pressure side which draws fuel from the tank 2stage is the high pressure side which supplies very high pressure to the common rail for electronic controlled injectors you have to bleed the low pressure side by drawing fuel up to the filter using a vacuum source or similar if you have changed the filter etc do not try and start the engine until you have done that or you will draw air in the high pressure side and to bleed that you will have to loosen the injector pipes and crank the engine to purge the air but once undone you should replace the pipes according to jaguar due to the very high pressures in the system for safety reasons

Ford mondeo faults


the flashing orange light is the glowplug light that telling you there is a engine managment problem. you need to get the fault code out of the engine control module with a obd code reader to determine the cause but the common cause of the flashing glow plug warning is a air leak after the turbo charger

Engine managment light flashes (glow plugs light)


the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.

Mondeo diesal 2002, glow plug light


Hi

The glow plug coming on on the Diesel Mondeo is an engine management fault indicator. The car goes into "limp mode" when this happens or in other words safety mode is triggered. This explains your loss of power.

To find the cause of this light coming on - the car will have to go on an OBD scanner at a service shop which will read the codes stored in the cars computer and give you an answer as to what is causing the fault to show.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate my answer as ratings are important to me as an expert on the site. Thank You.
