had my fr since june, engine light came on 1 week ago and the fault was the glow plug, that got replaced and today i have went out to the car and the light is back on, really worried as i think its very strange for the engine light to be on in a car thats only 7months old with 11k on the clock, should i be worried or could it be something silly?

thanks in advance.

My advice is to always be worried and play safe. Whether the glow plug again or not, get it fixed. Never be afraid to use your warranty. If you ignore the light and the worst happens, you could be in stuck - particularly if your service garage people read this forum!

just find it very strange for the engine light to be cominng on in the 1st place as its relatively new.
Its doing it's job, warning of an issue (or potential one) with the engine or otherwise associated ancillary component, you are still right though, it shouldnt happen in a 7 month old vehicle. have a moan at the dealer.

who knows - maybe they never replaced it first time, just cleared/reset fault code?
This is what im thinking, they were ment to phone me back today to arrange for me to take it in... but still waiting on the call, this will be the 3rd time it has been in for this issue in 1/2 weeks, not happy with the customer service as twice they said they would call me back and both times iv had to phone them.
