EML Light on & In Limp Mode

Hi, I have had my 2012 Antara 2.2cdti 2wd for just over a month now, everything was fine, then the eml light came on soon followed by the car going into limp mode.
Had it plugged in locally & showing code P0263, the garage advised that 3 of the 4 glow plugs weren't working. so had these replaced, now showing codes for all 4 cylinders not just P0263 for No1, can clear the fault but just comes back as P0263 for No1.
Any input would be appreciated as I cant believe that all 4 injectors would develop faults all at once.

Hi Rmhamberland.

I've just come across this post and it literally mirrors what's happened to ours. We've had all 4 injectors done and recoded, as well as various sensors, EGR cleaned etc but as you mentioned code po263 has reappeared and car remains in limp mode.

Frustratingly the car is running spot on.

Can I ask if your issue is resolved and what the outcome was?

Sorry cars still in garage been there 9 weeks now they've now done a 2 hour interface with vauxhall where the vauxhall tech has flashed the ECU and viewed data from the car.

This didn't work and vauxhall tech was unable to offer any solutions.

I'm hoping for a good result next week. New ECU going in!

Will post any updates.

Had a used ECU with the same part number fit, programmed and coded it to the car.

Car now is now fixed no limp mode or fault codes.

Hope this helps. I can pass on garage details if anyone needs them. I'm in Pendle area of Lancashire
