Diesel engines are quite different from their gasoline counterparts.
Besides not using spark plugs, just about every diesel engine uses fuel to lubricate high-precision engine components. Unfortunately, trace amounts of water can be found in diesel fuel and it needs to be removed before it gets to the engine.

What does the fuel filter warning indicator light mean?
Inside the fuel filter, a warning light is a fluid level sensor that keeps track of the amount of water that has been collected. Once the level starts reaching maximum capacity, the fuel filter warning light will illuminate to let you know to empty the filter.
On manual systems, a valve at the bottom of the filter will let the water drain out once opened. If your filter empties automatically and the light comes on, it indicates that an error or malfunction has been detected and it needs to be checked out as soon as possible.
This fuel filter warning light could mean that the drain is blocked and the system can’t empty itself. A code will be saved on the computer to help you identify the cause of the problem. Has the car checked out with a diagnostic scan tool to find the saved code or codes?
Don’t ignore this fuel filter warning light or the system will fill with water and start leaking it to the engine. Once the water has been drained from the filter, this warning light should go out on its own.
