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.

Alternator replaced. car fine until recently


You car is fuel injected. You should not need to pump the gas pedal to get it to start. If your check engine light is on you need to take it to a shop and have the codes read so you can see what the problem is and repair the problem. A change of fuel filter might help. Water in your diesal fuel may also be a source of your problem. A diesal motor works off of combustion and heat, there really isnt an ignition system in the car except for the glow plugs which heat things up prior to ignition. If it is taking 34 times to start the vehicle you may also have a glow plug issue. If these are not working properly you will never get this vehicle to start.

I really think you have a glow plug problem.

1996 fiesta ghia diesal no glow plug light


No power to the glow plugs means no power to the light also. You have a bad fuse or connection to the glow plug relay. Fix that and your good to go. Has nothing to do with your indicator lights on either side of dash. Glow Plug power indicator is labeled THAT and only that.

Mondeo 55 plate starting problems when the engine is warm


Hi Warren,,
These cars are fitted with a Delphi common rail system that is known for various faults including yours, you need to have a sealed rail test done on the injectors as they are probably leaking off to much causing low pressure in the common rail,when the car is warm,they also suffer with injector code loss ,no reason they get confused this normally gives poor performance and high fuel consumption ,if the injectors are fine check the system for air leaks in the fuel supply pipes and check the leak off pipes for leaks,even the smallest leak can let air in,if the engine light has come on get the codes read ,

Glowplug light


Hi ,
You need to have the fault codes read,this will point you in the right direction,the revs die as it is going into limp home mode to protect itself,by turning the ignition off and then on you reset the ecu untill it detects the fault again.

2003 toyota avensis diesal . dificult starting from initial start


I am assuming this a cold weather only issue ?? Turn your key to on before cranking it over for about 5 sec to let the glow plug heat up a moment. Not allowing the glow plug to warm will wear out your starter.
