starting issues

I have 2001 doblo cargo 1.9d (non turbo) owned it for 9yrs with no major issues until a month or so ago. Problem is very intermittent, van starts on the button with no trouble until out of the blue it refuses to start, used it for transport to work this morning with no trouble until on the way home I stopped off to pick something up and it refused to start. Engine turns over lovely, really fast and strong, rang the aa, while waiting tried it every 5min but no joy. Had to push it back 6 or 7 feet as blocking another driver slightly, tried again and started at the first turn of the key, and I mean first turn of the engine and has done all day since, everything seems ok on the dash apart from the flashing glow plug light that's been there for 18 months or longer.......any ideas??

cheers wayne.

Re: starting issues

still starting ok, took it to a mate with a basic code reader which found no codes at all, strange as I thought at least something from the glow plug would have shown up.
