As far as I'm aware, my 51 plate 307 HDi has glow plugs. I'm pretty sure my mechanic comfirmed that. How long am I meant to wait for them to warm up after the first key turn before starting the engine? I've been waiting about 5 or 6 seconds, just in case.

Also, after the first key turn, I get all the usual lit up icons on the dash which go out after the engine starts. One of those icons is a red 'STOP'. What would need to happen to the car for the 'STOP' icon to illuminate?

Over to you, ..( ..moose no doubt ) :)

To the best of my knowledge hdi engines do not have glow plugs. For the stop sign to come on whilst driveing it would take a potentially serious engine/car damaging fault.

This link explains how the hdi works (boring stuff TBH)
