Hi Nudger .
Its possible its the last load of fuel you picked up , but what i suggest is you get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes as your glow light is flashing letting you know you have a problem with the management system.
You could do the basics first like check the air filter ,drain the fuel filter and check for water if water is evident drain the tank and replace the filter add new fuel and test .
If no water evident then check with a scan tool for malfunction codes
this will let you know what part of the system is causing you this issue .
Please rate my help a good to excellent if you are satisfied .
If not ready to rate don't rate poor or bad service as we can continue to work on this issue or I can opt out and recommend another expert .
After accepting there is no extra charge for further assistance.
If I don't reply soon I will as quickly as I can when i get back on line.
Kind regards Greg
