Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

 

A flashing glow plug light on these Fords acts as a ECU fault message - telling the driver that the Ecu - main computer , has detected a fault somewhere in the engine management system... and as such, the ecu will have logged a fault code (s) to show what the problem is.

 

What you need to do now is to have a diagnostic machine connected to the vehicles' main 16 pin diagnostic port so that the ecu can be scanned for the logged faults... Then the operator is directed to the location of the fault/s with the aid of the fault code process.

 

Many smaller garages have this equipment that is needed so ring around to find one that can help you and get that done for you - then you will be able to address the fault itself... using a smaller garage rather than a dealer will no doubt be cheaper..and quicker for you.

 

Common faults with these when this light flashes are injector problems , coding issues or turbo faults -- but you will know once the diagnostic is done.


I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE

Hi mike,thanks for your reply,forgot to mention that alarm went off a couple of times when opening car just before the lights came on,does this narrow things down any?thanks, Chris
Ford Mechanic: Mike, Technician replied 8 years ago
Hi again, thank you for your reply...

Sorry I couldn't reply sooner..

In answer to your question there , no, the alarm system is totally separate so you must have something else going on there..

To be honest , alarm faults on these are usually down to faulty switches in the doors - but the security system on these have excellent diagnostic capabilities so I would ask when you have the garage check the above for you - that they check that out as well at the same time... Kill two birds with the one stone as it were / on fee !

I hope that helps you further..

Kind Rgds. MIKE
