I agree that either the glow plugs are burnt out or the controller is defective, as a Ford delaer technician I replaced the glow plugs as a set and also the controller, otherwise the trucks cam right back with more glow plugs burnt out.

I have a 1999 ford f250 and i am having hard time starting it in the cold weather.What do I do?


Make sure your plug wires are not being affected (brittle, old,etc}. An engine oil heater works well in cold areas. Possible thickening of oil.

Won't start below 40 degrees, wait to start light does not even come on


Your glow plug controller is out, or there is an interruption in its power source, etc. Diesels are coldblooded by nature, and most need glow plugs to heat them up before starting in cold weather. The controller supplies the power to the glow plugs, but if it goes bad, or its supply of power isn't there, it won't start in cold weather, and that wait to start light which is also controlled by it won't come on.

This engine 'loves' glow plugs! One goes and the others try to handle the amps. Change them and you will have no probs! Other than that, I feel this is about the best diesel truck made!

Ford f250 superduty turbo diesel 7.3L Will not crank


Charge the batteries. take a Reading to make sure that you are getting almost 14v to both batteries. If it is not charging then take the alternator back off and have them check it. you might have bought a bad one. There is a way to test the glow plus with out taking them out. ( Take a piece of wire long enough to reach all the glow plugs from the battery. unplug the glow plug wire.If you touch the end of the glow plug with the hot wire it should make a little spark. if no spark then the glow plug is bad. do this to each one, but one at a time)

My 99 Ford Diesel pickup will often die at idle.Usually as I slow down for a light or to make a turn onto a street.Sometimes it will idle for a bit then just die.Not all the time but often.If I add some...


Have you checked your glow plugs? There are a number of additives you can use. Go to Amsoil.com and try some cold start. I sell this stuff and alot of other things for diesels. I invested in a small code reader from my local auto parts store to help me diagnose my truck.

1999 F250 SD 7.3L cold starting problem


Yes, my 2003 did the same with about 75k miles on it, stranded me on days it stayed under 40F unless I plugged in the block heater the night before, then it started like a champ. Dealer replaced the relay and a control unit under ESP warranty. There's no way to fix this one without throwing parts at it.
