Unfortunately in 2005 Ford 6.0L diesels were NOT factory equipped in most areas with block heater plugs. It is available from Ford for about 40 bucks. kdc744 is correct on the location, but only up to 2004, not 2005 and up. To install the chord, get under the truck on the passenger side, and locate the starter, look up over it and you'll see a round 4-pin connector...thats where the block heater plug plugs into the block. After you plug it in the real fun begins, you have to route it along the frame and then out to the bumper. It takes a while but you'll get it out to the tow hook location in the front bumper. I actually use the plastic cover on the plug to hook it to the tow hook itself.... hope that helped

Glow plug light comes on then off


The glow plug light comes on to show that the glow plugs are warming up. You should not start the vehicle until the light turns off, as it can damage your glow plugs. The light should turn off after a few seconds while the ignition switch is in the on position. In short the vehicle is working properly.

My 2004 f250 after it sits it wont start. the wait to start light only comes on for bout1 to 2 sec. the only way i start it is to plug it up at night what is my problem.


The wait to start light always comes on for at least 1 sec, if it goes off early it must think the engine is warm.

My guess is you have a faulty engine oil temp sensor that is telling the pcm that it is already warm. The only way to know for sure is to read the info with a scan tool.

Glow Plug System: Description and Operation
GLOW PLUG SYSTEM
The 6.0L diesel engine uses a glow plug system that preheats air in the combustion chamber to improve cold engine starting.
The system consists of:
- glow plugs.
- glow plug control module.
- powertrain control module (PCM).
- engine oil temperature (EOT) sensor.
- barometric pressure sensor (BARO sensor).
The glow plug monitor system is part of the On-Board Diagnostics II (OBD II) System.
The glow plug system is electronically controlled by the powertrain control module. If the oil temperature is below 55°C (131°F) the powertrain
control module will energize the glow plugs immediately after the key is placed in the ON position. Then, depending on the readings from the engine
oil temperature (EOT) sensor and the barometric pressure (BARO) sensor, the powertrain control module determines how long the glow plugs will be
on.
The glow plugs are located in the cylinder heads, under the glow plug buss bar.
The glow plugs are self-regulating. If the engine oil temperature is above 55°C (131°F), the powertrain control module will bulb-check the WAIT TO
START lamp but not energize the glow plug relay.
The glow plug ON time varies from 0-120 seconds depending on battery voltage, engine oil temperature and barometric pressure.
The glow plug control monitor (GPCM) system is designed to find failed glow plugs or failed wiring in the glow plug system.

1993 ford f250 7.3 diesel glow plugs not working. what to do?


Check the fuse first then check the wire harness and connection working your way back from the glow plug to the fuse box. Good luck and hope this helps. If everything is good then replace the glow plugs.

Your Glow plugs are getting weak,try plugging it in to the outlet it should have a cord by the front of the grille. the glow plugs are just to start it.

You need to check the glow plug system. Check for power from the glow plug relay.
