when you have codes read it will tell you if throttle pedal is at fault,get codes read put codes up here and some one will be able to help
throttle pedal fault will be codes p1342 p1343 p1344 and ai think p1576 any of these would point to knackered pedal,
flashing glow plug light does mean there is a fault and it will be logged best get codes read as you might find yourself stuck,dont guess could be many things

Without reading the codes you would only be guessing as to the fault, and you could end up changing parts which don't need changed, but a simple test for the pedal, start van, when it is sitting try pulling throttle pedal from side to side, if the light strt flashing then the pedal is faulty
