    Hi, I have a C270 on an 02 plate, recently the orange glow plug light has been staying on for a little while after start up, theres no problem starting but i have got an intermitent limp home mode problem, basically if i nail it for a few seconds it will go into limp home mode but then after rturning to normal driving it comes back out of that ? Is the glow plug light effecting that? Do the plugs just need changing?

    Not sure the glow plugs would be causing the limp mode but the light coming back on does mean one or more of the plugs need changing. Possibly the glow plug relay is faulty.

    Best get the car on STAR and check the codes..
