2007 Outlander 2.0 Di-D P0671 and P0672 DTC Codes

Hi

I've just got myself a 2007 Outlander 2.0 Di-D and I popped my OBD Reader on to see if there are any 'hidden' issues.

The only 2 errors that are reported are P0671 and P0672, which seem to be generic glow plug errors.

The car doesn't seem to have an issue starting, and there are no warning lights on the dash, so I am wondering if these could simply be historic errors that have not been cleared (I have read that he ECU does NOT clear glow plug errors when you resolve the issue).

Is this sometheng to be concerned about, seeing as the car starts with no issues at all, and there is no warning light on the dash ?

If your not noticing any drivability issues, clear the codes and see if they come back. If they come back there is still a problem, if they don't then your good.

Thanks for the reply. I cleared the codes, and they came back.

As I'm new to this, is there a special way I am supposed to clear the codes? I'm using Torque Pro (Android) with an ODBLink LX ODB Rerader, and after reading the codes in Torque, I tell Torque to reset the codes. Torque then indicates that is successfully reset the codes, but if I scan for codes again (immediately, without doing anything else) the codes are still there. should codes be read and reset when ignotion is on, but engine not running, or when engine is running? After resetting, should I do anything else (like start car etc.) ?

As I have noticed no issues with starting whatsoever, should I simply wait until I DO notice issues ? I assume these 2 codes would only affect starting the car, and not how the car actually drives ?

Should I maybe just go ahead and replace the glow plugs (I seem to remember from when I did this on a '95 Pajero that they were reasonably cheap, and 'a simple enough job')

Thanks

It has been about 14 years since I actually had to clear a code, needless to say smart phones didn't exist as they do now and it was done with a proper mechanics scanner that I had access to. I don't really remember the process, just clear and drive around for a while.

According to this link it is NOT a generic code.

The 1 means cylinder 1 and your P0672 means cyl. 2.

If you cleared correctly and they come right back I would assume they are broken (the glow plugs)
or connection is bad etc.

Now if it is not too cold you can easily start with two glow plugs
after all it is a DID

Old 4 cly. Diesels would not start with 2 glow plugs at freezing temperature.
