    Diagnostic Error code Glowplug

    Hi,
    I'm a newbie to this Forum, just purchased a 05 320D E90 model, i have a couple of error codes which would not reset after service, they are "Glowplug 1,2,3,4 open circuit" and "Glow duration unit no communication". I have had no cold start issues as yet, i've read on some forums that the issue could be the control unit or relays which supply the unit. Grateful for any advice.

    Not noticed anything, starts ok, just going off whats on the service report. Should there be a display on the dash on start up, i.e. like the heating element symbol on other diesels? Not owned a BMW before.

    Your car will probably start without use of glow plugs. They are only there to aid starting before switching themselves off. The coil symbol will problably show in extreme weather conditions.
