Hi guys keep getting this message coming up with a flashing glow plug symbol usually after I've been sitting in traffic. Then it goes away after I pick up speed for a bit. Its getting more and more frequent but still drives ok. Anyone know what it means?

Have your brake lights blown again? if so then its the switch or relay... If not just turn all the rest of the lights on see which is gone :)

No my brake lights are all still working. It came on again today was driving up a dual carriage way up hill definately wasn't touching the brake pedal. The cars an automatic so I am pressing the brake more than usual though.
