My glow plug/ ecu light came on for about 10 seconds a couple of times about 6 months ago whilst driving along a dual carrigeway at about 70mph. I serviced the car and it didn't do it again until last weekend, going uphill at 70mph overtaking on dual carrigeway causing the turbo to cut out.

From what I can see from other posts in this site a lot of people seem to fix this sort of problem by cleaning the EGR valve.

If there was a loose wire this won't help, but with complex car electrics locating the problem can be difficult. My old skoda had a dead cat and the garage got all sorts of errors until the cat was fixed, then it gave only one error, a very expensive one too unfortunately!

Here is a recommended page for cleaning the EGR
