Hi there , good afternoon to you

Ok this fault will most commonly lie with an injector knock limit issue (basically tje injector has reached its predefined value /limit(this causes the glow plug light yo continue flagging even after restarting vehicle where by most other concerns of the glow plug light will clear after keying off /on

This must be clarified by haning a diagnostic fault code check carried out to verify what adult code is logged

If this is found to be the case you need to have the injector correction factors reprogrammed and if fault persists which it commonly does the injector on the affected cylinder should be replaced

But more clarity will be shown once a good quality diagnostic fault code check is carried out
