if only 3 plugs heat, probabilly one of the two pre-heat relays is defective ( or it's command ).
The relays are located left in the engin compartment, just in front of the battery and in the battery box. They should have green connectors.
If there is no fault found at the relays, but on their 'command', the pre-heat control box is located IN te vehicle under the steering column. ( Black plastic box with 4 screws, and a 16 or 20 position connector for engines with EGR )
Hope this explanation helps

Unfortunately there is no solution to this except to take it back to Iveco for reprogramming.
I am led to believe from my locksmith that there are two types of transponders generally put into cars and vans.
The first is a simple chip wtih a code which matches a code in the car / Van
The second is a chip which has a set of codes. They are read in order and the car / van remembers which one was used last. If you use the wrong code in the sequence then the car / van will ignore it and not let you start the engine.
The Iveco is unfortunately in the second group. If, like me, you snap your key, you can superglue a new key to the old and it works fine. The chip doesn't need to be "too" close to the barrel. Yes, it looks ugly, but it's much cheaper!

check to see if your brake lights are working.usually the stop light switch fails and is the cause.but before buying a new one check the stop light fuse.its a common problem with a simple fix.hope this helps.

Despite what you may read from other comments....The glow plug light is
simple a multi function warning light and IS among many othed
things in fact used to warn of brake light and brake light switch
failure. Therefore it can NOT be treated as glow plug problems only.
I have worked on V.W for many years and have encountered this problem many times. You should get the OBD codes read. This will reveal the exact problem...and there may be more than one
You can contact your V,W agents if you wish and check to see if I am correct.
Best of luck
