    Default EML light when first starting, no fault code recorded???

    My 2.0dti Signum brings up the EML when I first start it. If I rev it above about 2000 revs the light goes out. When scanning with my scanner, no fault codes are recorded.

    Could this be a simple thing like a dodgy glow plug?

    OK. Found the fault.

    Unplugged all of the plugs and tested each one with a multi-meter. All of the plugs read 0.9 ohms to ground apart from one which was open circuit.

    I replaced it and now I haven't got the EML when I first start the car.

    Yeah, one of the glow plugs was open circuit. Sorry, I referred to them as 'plugs' in my previous post.

    You have to squeeze really hard on each side of the connector and pull upwards.
