Hi I have a diesel, my glow plug light has been coming on recently and now the engine management light, but also today the steering warning light came on and started making a pinging noise. I cannot figure out what it is. It is booked in for a diagnostics test tomorrow, but I was just wanting a heads up.
Do you
have the same problem?

This will probably be an electrical problem, may be a bad earth check all earth points and check main engine loom harness plug is secure and pins have no corrosion.

Just to start try changing your fuel filter if you haven't recently. It really sounds like the fuel pressure is dropping out at times. Check and or change all the filters if its time. They make more difference than you know
