That would be a dummy light to indicate that your vehicle is running hot. Check the fluid level a.s.a.p to ensure that it has enough fluid in the rad, add if needed

What is spring sign showing on dash of seat Ibiza sport 1.6


hi Marc

SEAT Ibiza glow plugs heating warning light - your SEAT Ibiza is equipped with an automatic glow plug system. The indicator lamp lights up while the glow plugs are preheating. If the engine fails to start immediately, the glow plugs have not finished preheating. In this case, keep the clutch pedal depressed (or keep your foot on the brake if your vehicle has an automatic gearbox) until the engine starts. (applies to diesel cars only)

Why are my glow plug light is flashing all the time and on first start in morn it coughs and splutters and smokes bad from exhaust wat is wrong had coolant temp sensor changed today please help im a female...


I think you are referring to a different indicator light. A glow plug is a Diesel engine part and I do not think an American version has a Diesel. There is a "check engine light" which is an indicator of trouble and will display as you described.

Go to a Advance , Autozone, or Oreilys autoparts store. You can ask for a free scan to diagnose your problems. The coolant sensor can relate to a cold start problem. Some models use 2 temperature sensors. One operates the dash gauge and the other operates engine controls.

You will need to know if you replaced the sensor to the dash gauge instead of the engine control sensor. Both use heat to set engine controls.

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.

Glow plug indicator blinking


Your glow plugs are going bad and need to be replaced. This is a sign to you that they are basically running all the time because they dont know that thye are heated up and the car is running. Common problem with diesels
