Default Engine Problems

I have a problem with my 2004 Rover 75 2.0 litre Diesel, the car runs for several miles then fails. I have scan results which are :-
P3505 Glow System
P1260 Delivery Fuel Pressure Monitoring
P1250 Delivery Control Relay
P1E45 Condensor Voltage (Cylinder 1,2,3)
P1190 Rail Pressure Control

Is there any one out there that can point me in the right direction?

Ignore the glow plug, that won't have any bearing, sounds like a fuel pump is failing to me, your plenumn is nice and dry isn't it?

Thanks for the information and yes the Plenumn is dry.
The pump appears to be working but when the engine is running there is a smell as though too much fuel is being discharged. The engine is erratic and continues to fail.

If your in tank fuel pump is working, have a listen to the unerbonnet pump to see if you can hear anything strange.

If the pumps are ok, i would do an injector leakback test next.

Just been chatting with marinabrian who has come across a similar problem, he says it could be a sporadic signal from the immobiliser.

Does your car have a sunroof?
