Question about Cars & Trucks
Glow plug light wont light up inticating plugs are warm. Pulled wires off glow plug relay and cleaned them up. Started up and ran fine till I turned it off. Then had to pull wires and clean up before it started. Did this for a couple of days and then wouldnt do it at all. Replaced glow plug relay and still no luck. Retuned it for another glow plug relay and still nothing? Put old relay back in and got it to work and start for a day and now nothing again?

Hello, here is the proceedure. Any questions please ask. Good luck.
The red-striped wires on the 1994-96 DI Turbo engine carry 115 volts DC. A severe electrical shock may be given. Do not pierce the wires.

You may want to surf around on some of the powerstroke forums for detailed answers, but I know the powerstrokes use oil pressure to control the injectors so you may have some problems with the high pressure oil pump.
Again, it is just a guess. I just wanted to point you to some of the Ford Powerstroke forums which may be of much more help for you.

I can solve this problem for you but I need the right information. They have your truck listed as a 2003 F-350. Then it is also listed as a 2007 and want to know where the glow plug relay is. I need the correct year and model with the proper engine displacement.

the glow plug relay is a little black box normally located in the fues box, the relay regulates power to the glow plugs, if the relay is not functioning correctly the plugs will not heat enough or, you will have to allow a longer time to let them heat up, it acts like a switch as such, when you turn on your ignition it switches over to make a contact inside, which inturn starts the heating prosess of the glow plugs when they are at the correct tempreture or the onbored computer detects they are it then switches back , without it , say just using a fuse instead, your glowplugs will just get hotter and hotter till they melted, and no you dont have to change the glow plugs hope this helps, ime not good at explaining stuff in writing lol
