    Jayadev, if you're experiencing frequent glow plug burnouts, then give the glow plug circuit a check.

    Maybe it's putting out more voltage than required.

    No , it happened only once,that too while taking my car back from free checkup camp.I doubt the service technician messed up something or replaced it with faulty one (don't know the truth) ,then and there they promised me that it wl be replaced under warrenty when new part arrives.But I was disappointed to see "first" issue in my car and hoping that it wont show up again.
    BTW there was no starting problem or any other anomalies .the engine fired in first crank anytime of the day.

    Go there and do a check up - no harm in getting a check up done to make sure that your glow plugs really do not have any issue - if found faulty, you can get them replaced too.

    Issue Solved.

    Issue solved. Replace Glow Plug No. 1 which is Short. (as per gurjinder).

    On 17th car reached TASC with my Driver. They checked once again and ask that Plug no. 1 is short.

    Firstly Mechanic refused to replace it in Warranty . Then i talk with Service Manager about this issue, he told me that he checked matter and call me, after 15 minuets called me and ask that some of parts are not cover in Warranty after complete 1 year, I ask leave as it is I will mail to fiat and clarify it then Repair it, he ask I am just inform you but I do something for you, leave this matter on me with faith, I agree. Then my driver call that they replace it in Warranty. ;)

    Now it is ok now.

    I just had this "Check Glow Plugs" warning. The coil warning light came up roughly 4-5 seconds after starting the engine (all warning lights go off after turning key to mar position except the usual ones, battery, engine oil, brakes and seat belts. This glow plug light comes on only after engine is started. Stays for 20 seconds or so as mentioned by prihir.

    There was no issue in the morning when car was taken out by my father.

    Will get the system checked the next time I am back in Chandigarh. :(

    @prihir, i didn't got one thing. If your car was under warrenty then why did TASC charged you for labour??
    Have you chacked that with FIAT? "For some parts, only one years warrenty??'' thats strange too! I might be wrong but i believe that warrenty for all parts is for 2years.
