I had a similar problem. It just stops for no apparent reason? Usually when it's cold outside?

Try replacing the glow plug relay, an AA guy did this for me and I haven't had the problem comeback since. It's in a panel under the dash on the drivers side. I think it's number 102 but I advise you to check that beforehand....

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.

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.

Glow light flashes


Correct - the glow light flashing is an indication that there is fault. Often this is associated with a blown brake bulb or faulty brake switch.

Coil light flashing


Hi Robert
From the brief description of your problem I'm guessing your vehicle is a Diesel? as the light you refer to sounds like the Glow Plug warning. When you turn on the ignition from cold the light comes on for around 5 to 10 seconds and then you start engine Yes?
If the light is coming on after vehicle is warmed up the glow plugs will upset the combustion and ruin your performance, so I would be looking at glow plug timer fault.
Hope this FixYa's problem!
