Glow plug light is probably the brake light switch, under the brake pedal. This can get into the engine and cause damage but normally it doesn’t although the subsequent extremely important thorough clean out of the system takes a lot of labour time and the turbo is much more expensive to repair.

Every diesel needs glowplugs to heat the cylinders in order for the diesel to ignite as a diesel uses compression to ignite the diesel/air mixture. The engine was in standard limp mode which protects the engine in certain scenarios, this resets each time the ignition is cycled.

I pulled over turned off engine, waited a wee while, restarted and everything was ok - no alarm, lights etc. am I correct in saying (apart from the irritation factor of having the lights flashing), that the glow plug is a "non-event" in South Africa's temperate climate, and that the glow plug is really only needed in sub zero temperatures...? The only way to confirm the real issue is to have a diagnostic check done (where the car is connected to a computer and the fault codes logged by the car's computer are read).
