Hi everyone. New member here requiring some advice if anyone can help me.
I have a brand new C max literally 6 months old now, noticed a message a couple of days ago straight after starting the engine up....
Can anyone tell me if this is something or nothing to worry about as it comes up after starting the engine and not before (weird I know)

Is your C-Max a diesel if so is there a short delay between either turning the key or pressing the start button and the engine cranking ? If so it's normal it's just the glow plugs pre-heating the cylinders but should only do it on cold mornings.
