You've got a short somewhere, or one of the glow plugs is bad.

On some Models the glow plug Relay does not have an integrated Power Relay. This means there is a second Relay before the glow plug Relay that feeds it power.

You should check the wires running to the glow plug Relay for power with the key ON. Check some other wires off of the Ignition switch to make sure your 20 year old Ignition switch is good.

There are some sites which show vehicle wiring. Autozone has a free section after Registering your vehicle but it takes a little sorting through the Help section. There should be a fuse to protect the above Relays.

Make sure you find the Diesel-equipped wiring circuit. Diesel ignitions are different from gas units.

Glow plugs does not work.


check that the relay is working as the plug indicator gets the power after the relay . It may be a fuse . If the relay is ok then pull the Glo-plugs and have them check

My 1995 powerstroke blows the fuse when the key is turned to the on position for the glow plug . I need help diagnosing this problem,thanks.


Well, there's not all that much that can go wrong with a glow plug circuit to cause it to blow a fuse. One or more shorted glow plugs will do it (unhook them and use a multimeter to measure resistance at each glow plug terminal to ground, zero or almost zero resistance will show the culprit), as will a pinched or bare wire between the relay and a glowplug.

The relay itself can also short out- check it while you're under there. You may have to unhook the wire that actuates the relay to get a correct reading. Turning the switch to the glowplug position with the relay unhooked will show you whether or not the wire from the switch to the relay is good.

99 Ford F350 Powerstroke diesel; misfire code; loss of power


The first thing i would check is the Glow Plug Relay. Depending on your engine there should be (2 solenoids, or just one) sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. (right bank of engine that is) If you have 2 of them one should be smaller and it is the one furthest to the rear of the engine. It controls power to your glow plugs for cold start up. When you turn the key to the on position the 2 larger wires should both have power. When the ignition is off only one wire should have power. Check this if you do both these tests and only one wire has power with key on or off then you need to make sure that the key switch is sending power to the solenoid. Do this by checking the smaller wire with key off. It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. If this is good and test one is bad then the relay is bad. Note This is not true for the larger realy that sits furthest foward on the engine. The bigger one. This test will not work for it but it controls your intake heater. On another note: This is a timed circut and will "kick out" after about 1-2 minutes. In otherwords it does not stay on all the time that key switch is on it will for for about 1-2 minutes then shut off! Next would be your injectors are getting weak or bad and even your HPOP could be getting weak. or glow plugs in engine are out, In otherwords there are alot of possibilities causing your problems If you are getting a misfire code for your injectors then you may have some weak or inop injectors. Any way this will give you a pretty easy test for the most common failure which is the Glow plug relay. About 35-40 bucks at your local auto parts house.

Glow plugs has life span of 3-4 years.

Less if your glow plugs relay is on its way out.

===
Check the batteries terminal for corrosion.

Check the cable and ground connections

Do a load test on the batteries.
The best battery are rated for 96 months

If your are handy

Google for some tip on glow plug relay bypass using a starter relay.

Wait to start light doesn't come on on my 1999 ram diesel it starsts a little hard on cold mornings


The Cummins does not have glow plugs as mentioned above. It has intake heaters. I have a 99 also and it is a cold natured girl on a cold morning. You should have a block heater to plug in when it is below 40 F. The electric plug should be on the passenger side just inside grill on the hood. You can plug it in all night or a couple of hours before you are ready to go and it should help. Also, since your wait to start light is not working, the intake heaters may not be working. Check them out.
