The diagram is simple each glow plug is connected in a series circuit like this -0-0-0-0-0-0-0 that's a in-line 6 for a V-8 it would look like this
[-0-0-0-0
[-0-0-0-0
and the plugs would be hooked up on the back then if you follow the wire to the glow plug relay you will find that the relay has four wires one to battery one to the glow plugs one to the ignition switch and one to ground in the box. If you want you can purchase a manual for 5.99 on-line. and it covers the three fuse-able links for this system and the new Glow plugs available for this truck here is the web page. http://www.wiring-diagram.com/?gclid=CMuAvJ3Ql58CFQZfagod0jpAxQ

I did this exact thing.. I see your date of posting is a while ago, however let me know how you ended up.. If you leave the battery connected while installing the relay you can short it out causing the problem all over again.. also there is a couple points that run along that wiring harness that are known to rub through.. let me know how you did!

Check for fuses first. The Glowplug timer is the proper name for the part that responds to Temperature when starting your engine. When the engine is cold, of course it is on longer and can cycle making a click and intermittently dimming the lights on your truck. When the engine is warm, your gowplugs may not even fire as the engine is using compression alone to fire up.

Also, Ford did make a Severe Weather model that kept the glowplugs on longer. If you stay in Alaska or a climate with consistent subzero temperatures you may need it.

Actually GM gas engines are 1,3,5,7 on the left and 2,4,6,8 on the right.
The diesel engine is actually just the opposite. 1,3,5,7 are on the right and 2,4,6,8 are on the left

Long cranking before starting 2003 Duramax 6.6 diesel. Tested Glow Plugs, replaced two, others were good. Feplaced fuel filter and o rings. Still have problem.


this indicates several problems
low cranking speeds ---diesels have to crank at full speed
worn engine -- compression is not high enough to ignite the fuel
bad injectors ---squirting and not atomizing
the cheapest fix-- is to load test the battery and ensure that it has the capacity to spin the engine quickly
next is to have the injectors serviced and set properly
lastlt is to have a compression test done to check ring condition

My 03 duramax started fine this morning but only ran for a fiew minnuts then shut off on its own and now it wii turn over but not start it seems to have fuel pressure can it be cam sensor or crank sensor...


To start with, a Duramax Diesel runs on an excess of 20,000 Psi of fuel pressure. Unless you have some specialized equipment,(and know how to use it) I do not know how you could possibly tell that the fuel pressure is OK.

Duramax Diesels also have had a lot of problems with glow plugs. This could explain why it will not start. Then again, it COULD be something totally different like a bad sensor. This could even be caused by a faulty fuel pressure sensor or a bad fuel pressure regulator.

The best way to find out is to scan the engine computer for fault codes and read the engine data from the computer to see if all of the sensors are providing the correct input to the computer.

Wiring Diagram Glow Plug


Hello! The cylinder order on the 6.6L diesel engine in your vehicle is as follows: 1, 3, 5, 7 are on the driverside, with 1 being the front of the engine and 7 the rear. 2, 4, 6, 8 are on the passenger side 2 in the front and 8 is all the way back. #4 Glow Plug is therefore on the passenger side second one back counting from the front...

Firing order:
1 - 2 - 7 - 8 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 3

My 2500 duramax diesel dosent want to start


Does it have diesel?
Could be fuel filter or fuel pump.
Glow plugs?
Injectors? these trucks have been known to have bad injectors.
Possibly the oil pump, the injectors run off the oil pump.

Need to know firing sequence of glow plugs on a 2006 chevy 2500 hd duramax diesel engine


I am told the glow plugs heat up in "firing" order, also the Duramax uses a intake air heater to warm the air on cold starts.

2003 GMC Seirra Duramax Deisel won't start


If it cranks and won't start then it is probably your glow plug system which is used to help with starting as diesel engines have no plugs and rely on compression. It also helps to run a lighter oil in the winter so it will crank faster. You can ohm out the plugs to see if they are broken. I am not sure of the wiring on the GMC but usually diesels have several wired in parallel

Truck fails to start


The 01 DuraMax trucks do not have a block heater, unless they were special ordered with one. Just turn the key to the on position a few times before you try to crank it, and hold the accelerator partially down while doing it. However, don't hold the accelerator if it starts to crank, it DOES need a minute to warm up before being revved. Also, use a diesel treatment when its cold, it helps a lot.
