SOURCE: TDI Hard Start
This could be an Injector But, Not likely. Try this First, It is a long shot But, It is Cheaper. Replace your Gas cap. You could be Sucking air into the Tank from a Bad Gasket on the Gas Cap Causing your Hard Start.

SOURCE: glow plug light
Thats not good, if the glow plugs are being charged the whole time They will burn out quickly if not already. Even if the glow plugs are burned out the engine will still start unless your in a really cold region. Sounds like the GP (GP = glow plug) relay is fused in the open position, its located above the fuse panel refer to your owners manual to its exact location above the fuse panel. Just pull this relay out and your light should go out while engine is running. If this works simply replace the relay from your local Volkswagen dealer, but the bad news is I would highly recommend pulling the GP's out and checking to see if theres anything left of them. There not built to be on constant. Good luck Hope thats your problem just a relay.

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.

SOURCE: BAD COLD START NEW GLOW PLUGS
You have to check if you really glows comes to power that can show you the light on the dash that are working and maybe the relay of the glows does not work and you will pass voltage. Try a thick cable you put something in the battery positive and the other end touch the tip of the glow should produce a spark pquena holds about 20 or 25 seconds and give him star should work well. Thanks

THIS COMES ALL FROM "WAIT TO START" DO YOU WAIT TO START? IF NOT,THEN THE GLOW PLUGS ARE BUR'NT OUT,WHICH YOU WILL NOT NEED UNTIL FALL. OR MAYBE YOU'VE GOT IT HOOKED ON EITHER,STARTING FLUID,IN WHICH CASE,I SUGGEST YOU REPLACE THOSE GLOW PLUGS NOW.OR ELSE YOU'RE MOVING ON TO EVEN WORSE ISSUES.LET ME ASK YOU THIS,WHY ARE'NT THE GLOW PLUGS BEING DENIED POWER? AFTER ALL THEY START THE ENGINE? AFTER YOU INSERT THE KEY INTO THE SWITCH,WAIT TO START,LIGHTS UP.IF YOU'VE NOT WAITED UNTIL THAT WAIT TO START LIGHT GOES OFF,,,YOU'VE BURNT THE GLOW PLUGS UP.THE ONLY THING TO DO IS REPLACE THEM ALL.IF YOU'VE BEEN USING STARTING FLUID OR EITHER TO START YOUR ENGINE FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME,FORGET REPLACING THE GLOW PLUGS,BECAUSE YOUR ENGINE IS ADDICTED TO THE BOTTLE(EITHER) YOU MAY BE ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES,REPLACING THE GLOW PLUGS MAY RESOLVE YOUR ISSUES.BUT,WAIT TO START,,AIN'T NO JOKE. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU & YOURS!
