sameI do it from control box multiplug. Its under warranty so let garage do it.
Thanks for that. Would you agree that its ok to drive over the weekend as I understand they only affect start up
Thanks again for all the replies. Can anyone confirm that the check glow plugs warning is an actively monitored state i.e. once the failing glow plug is replaced the flashing light and message go away Dont want to have to crawl back to a dealer to get the light reset

This will help you with the glow plug price (and many other bits). Somewhere on this forum you will find a glowing discount code as well thanks to Maxi and the old chappies on this forum httpwww.shop4parts.co.uknamest...k_&_glow_plugs
i would recommend this to be a main dealer job David Halley had issues with glow plugs or injectors being seized in..
My manual says that a blinking light means a glow plug failure although it doesnt stipulate whether it just carrys on flashing or not. I guess yours stopped flashing and then you turned the engine on The manual also states that on a hot day the light will be on a very short time.

But as i didnt know the dpf wont work if glow plug error. So whats the question
If your car is under warranty and you have a glow plug error on your dash and the dealer youve taken your car to have allegedly told you a glow plug is stuck in the head it isnt covered under warranty then try another dealer. Ive had zero issues getting stuff fixed under warranty from a dealer thus far from door handle to boot lid not opening to electric steering motor so I dont really see what their issue would be.
That is what Ive done if it was subject to compression it would have fired out like a bullet when it started. Its a question of economics car worth &163500 cost of removing head must be not far short of that. So if it falls in and wrecks the engine I havent lost out if it stays in place I still havent lost out. No brainer.
mileage so I am not too worried at this stage. maybe water in the door lock switch has it rained when it did it the ignition switch can be lubricated if you like its all metal work in there and has some such grease inside it anyway but as you have worked out you were sinply flicking it just past mar engaging the lock as you returned to mar i do this on ocasion with mk1 punto its just the way fiat
plug out today and hooked it up to a 12V charger no heat or glowing so Im guessing the element is the problem. It looks original (Beru) so its over 17yrs old now probably time enough for new one before the ski trip Id say the glow plugin the thermostart probably draws at least 40A-80A so a charger wont heat it much. What current was on the charger when yoou connected it From what I can see in fiat
too bad. Typres are continental - look like new. Bought by a woman who couldnt manage the baby and the pram with just 2 doors. Have already planned some little improvements with red paint on the callipers and the red ringed hubs denso plugs and an ITG CAI. Picking it up tomorrow. It will be a little strange to see my old black 500 glowing in the dark down in the garage. httpwww.carzone.iesearchfiat50...tchannelCARS

The small print. Warranty isnt exactly bumper to bumper being cut back in year 4 & 5. At least the 2 year manufactures warranty has been extended to 3 - unsure if you would think of the 4&5 being equivalent to the original dealer bit. Again thanks to the Lee garage in Cork in Ireland... Dear Dealer Principal Please be advised that all fiat vehicles registered from 1st January 2012 until 31st March
