Would glow plug relay fault block DPF regen?

2007 1.6 Cooper D

I've been trying and failing to reset the DPF additive level using DIS this evening.

In the course of doing that I have come across a fault code:

"DDE - 4159 DDE Glow-plug relay, supply, glow plugs - Relay stuck or short circuit in glow plug or over"

2 Questions:

1. Would this fault prevent a Dooper from regenerating?
2. Can someone translate that message into simple English so I know what I need to buy/do?

the first job would be remove all glow plugs (always remove them with engine nice and hot they will snap off on a cold one more likely) when remived use a jump lead to cross the glow plug against the live and neg of battery hold it for cound of 5 it should glow orange hot on the end,, if dont that glow plug is dead replace it, do this to all of them so now you know that part of it is perfect,, if still have the u=issue then ots the relay its self,
links below for glow plugs and relay
