Hi all,

Am I right in saying that the glowplug light should come on when I switch the ignition on?

The reason I'm asking is because we have owned the car for nearly two months and I don't think I have ever seen the light when I switch the ignition on.

It's not bothering me but wondered if people on here get the glowplug light on the ignition or on start up.

Thanks

Davy

I think you'll find that most modern diesels do not under normal conditions have the glow plug light come on long enough to be seen. I don't think ours has but I'll check over the next day or so to see

Thanks Richard mate, I know that the last car I had a Skoda Fabia vRS that the glowplug came on everytime you switched on the ignition, but thats put my mind at rest anyhow. I guess the only time it will come on for long period of times is when something is up.
