Yellow engine warning symbol with flashing glowplug symbol

Hi all,
Iíve got a 2006 civic 2.2 diesel.
This morning the engine warning symbol appeared in the middle of the rev counter (yellow outline of engine with a big yellow exclamation mark in the middle) and at the same time the glow plug symbol on the dash is flashing, I canít get these to disappear.
Each time I start the car it appears - HELP

Can anybody help me please???

No it doesn't seem to, I can't find anything about the glow plug lamp flashing. Maybe the OP needs to take the car back to the dealer, get the same done again, then buy fuel from somewhere else.
I don't know if there is a fuel cut out on the diesel car, but often reasons for diesels not firing would be air or water in the fuel system. There is a process of priming the fuel system, maybe try that?
