Hello and Welcome..

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help / advise you -

The fault code you have is related to the battery light coming on - the definition of the fault code you have is as follows:

P2268 Alternator, CAN data bus - short circuit Wiring, alternator, glow plug control module

So these are the things to check given what you have - as above.

A common fault with these too is the alternator clutch pulley - often you can tell if the clutch pulley has failed ( the clutch part) by seeing that the belt is too loose - so check that... check when running also. Usually thats the fault here - but if not - the wiring / then alternator needs testing properly ...Too - you will notice the glow plug control module listed -a rare er fault - but does happen. If all else is ruled out as above -you then need to check that - but 99% of the time -with that code - and the battery light coming on as you have - its one or the other as above.

Let me know if you need anything else -
