Alfa Romeo 147

Hmmm Error glow plug message on 147

Hi Guys,

Just joined the site, looks like a lot is going on, very impressive.
I've just brought my first Alfa (147, 1.9JTDm 16v Turismo, 2006) from a private garage. Full service history, one owner from new, i thought i couldn't go wrong. On the 2nd day, engine management light came on, for the whole day, then hasn't been on since. "Error Glow Plug" message comes on 50% of the time when i switch on the engine. Asked the seller, he says it's just a short circuit, there's nothing wrong with the glow plugs, they warm up fine. Took it to Alfa dealer, they reset the system giving similar reason for the fault, but also saying that a Reset normally sorts this issue out 9 out of 10 times. However, in my case, the message still comes on, alfa say that they can do a more in depth diagnostic test to find the problem, which costs more money, what do i do?? What could be the problem, anyone had similar issues?

Otherwise, it is a beauty to drive, and diesel engine is surprisingly quiet
