Hi, please help my ford galaxy x reg 1.9tdi has all these error codes listed above. It’s always started first time every time, no problems. Then this time it started drove to my mother in laws house was there for about 10 mins. Went to start it and she wouldn’t start then glow plug light started flashing. Tried this a few times and she refuses to start. The engine is turning over but not firing. Another thing I noticed is that when I turn the ignition to warm up glow plugs there was always a noticeable sound. But now there is no sound at all..... my friend thinks it’s the fuel pump, but I don’t want to take the car apart if the problem could be something simple. Was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and hopefully a solution. Thanks in advance.

Those look more like VAG codes,
What did you pull them out with?
Ford code are usually "P" codes.

Hi yes I did think that as well, but the galaxy has a VW 1.9tdi engine in it same as the Albrama and the Sharan. My friend from the RAC plugged his computer into it and I screen shorted the error codes. I’m just wondering if those error codes mean that the 109 relay is maybe faulty. I don’t want to have to take the whole back out if it’s a simple solution as a relay.... thanks for replying though

Well a faulty relay goes with the lack of noise from the relay activation.
A good place to start.
