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.

Flashing glow plug light


Your glow plug light is fed from your glow plug circuit , a problem on that circuit would flag up a flashing light

I am not well versed on this unknown engine, but here is something to think about. If you look at the appropriate circuit scheme, there must be a part that controls your Maximum RPM. The Limp Mode is suppose to reduce RPM and Diesels do run at lower RPM than gas engines. Often an engine goes into LIMP when it senses overheating. On some engines, cylinders are deactivated and the dead cylinders are turned into cooling pumps.

Puzzling is the Glowplug warning. This can mean you have a dead short in some glowplugs. This easily can explain starting problems, but your engine will heat the glowplugs for probably 2 minutes or less and then they are off for a cold motor. Even restarting the engine when it is hot will not activate the glowplugs. So I can't see the glowplug problem causing a Limp Mode once you are underway.

It could be engineered to work this way though, and you need to refine the info about the Year, Model, and engine size.

I think I would try to change a temperature sensor, and pull the glowplugs out and test them.

1987 Ford f-250 6.9 liter diesel. Glow plugs are good, Relay is new, glow plugs don't work... is there a glow plug relay controller or timer that can be replaced, and what is the part's proper name?


Check for fuses first. The Glowplug timer is the proper name for the part that responds to Temperature when starting your engine. When the engine is cold, of course it is on longer and can cycle making a click and intermittently dimming the lights on your truck. When the engine is warm, your gowplugs may not even fire as the engine is using compression alone to fire up.

Also, Ford did make a Severe Weather model that kept the glowplugs on longer. If you stay in Alaska or a climate with consistent subzero temperatures you may need it.

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 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.
