    Are you getting a voltage at the plugs?

    whats resistance of each plug?

    Usually fault is with 1 or more glow plugs faulty

    Looking for battery voltage

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Design+

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 101000

    Default

    Mine gave this same fault code after replacing all four plugs with pattern ones. Replaced them all again with genuine ( Beru branded) ones and the fault cleared.

    I measured and found that the pattern ones had a slightly higher resistance then the genuine ones. this must have been enough to confuse the control unit.
