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.

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.

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

Hi, 2007 Santa Fe pre heat light stays on for about one second which I've timed and won't start. Connected test light at plug to glow plug light on for 1 second


Sounds like a faulty glow-plug controller.
I have wired the glow plugs directly, and it worked fine until my brother held the button too long and burned them out.

What is the problem ? I have a 1993 ford f 250 7.3 liter diesel. New Glow Plugs. Glow plug light comes on and goes out very quick , engine cranks excessively , before starting


I think you nailed it with the amount of time you glow plug light. It should stay on until you engage or it should be timed to stay on longer.

Why is glow plug light flashing after boosting in very cold weather?


hi.
in very cold weather, the glow plugs may stay on for up to a minute after starting the car to assist until the engine starts to warm up. the light flashes to tell you that the plugs are still on.
the time the light stays on can vary due to the temperarure.

Could a faulty coolant temp sensor make the glow plugs run all the time on a 1983 Mercedes 300CD?


No the glow plugs circuit is separate. They actually are on a timed delay shut off. Check the glow plug relay module behind the driver side headlamp assembly. If the light on the cluster is staying on all the time it's simply letting you know there is a fault in the glow plug circuit. Doesn't actually mean that the glow plugs are staying on all the time. You might just have a bad glow plug which is breaking the circuit therefor the glow plug light stays on. To check this use a test light and have someone turn on and off the ignition to see which plug doesn't light up.

Starting problem at cold weather and even if it starts it stop after running a mile or two


Hello
Your Land Cruier should pre-heat its self with the glow plug light on the dash board.

The frist thing to check is the glow plugs to make sure that all 8 are working you will have to remove them to test them one at a time,
As you will propley find out at least 3 or 4 glow plugs are down.

The idle up is just to lift the revs in the engine for jump starting or running other items on the car ie carvan,trailer.

As it will only lift the revs buy 200-400 RPMs this will have nothing to do with your pre-heat on the Jeep.

If you still have any problems please contact me
