    ok correction, the relay is a little gray cube under the dash, with 104 written accross it, and an 80A fuse in the top left corner of the box


    will keep tinkering....

    I have the same issue with my inca. A guy said it might be the engine control unit though I think it is linked to the coils (glow plugs) though unsure? How did you get on?

If i let my 7.3 ford diesil set 4 or 5 hour it hard to start again


A diesel uses glow plugs to fire the fuel when it is first started. If one glow plug quits working the glow plug controler shortens the time that the rest are on. If two its even shorter. If the wait to start light goes off sooner than it used to check the glow plugs.
Glow plugs can be checked easy with a test light.
Unplug a glow plug. (located on the head by the injector).
Just hook up a test light to battery positive (+) and touch the other end to the glow plug connector. If the light lights that one is o.k. Check all 8. Replace any that dont work.
If the glow plug system is working then check for fuel leaks. If fuel can leak out than air can get sucked in the fuel system and cause a hard start.
There is also a transfer pump on the frame rail under the drivers seat. This can be a issue if it fails.
When the key is first turned on this pump will come on and prime the system. You can hear it if you get close to it.
I hope this helps you. Re-post if you need more info.

By boeinga1 on Nov 17, 2010 2001 VW Diesel Golf TDI. Car started no problem. Drove to gas station. Stopped for gas. glow plug light wouldn't come on, engine wouldn't start, engine turning but not starting....


i think glow plug replacement needed. ever used starting fluid in cold to start?try this, next time no start, cycle your key and let the light come on, wait till it goes off, turn key again until light goes off, if you have to do this more than 3 times, and it runs fine, replace the glow plugs only then. thank you for choosing fixya.com!

Change glow plugs on mercedes vito 2.2 cdi


This is a Diesel van -- Glow plugs are not too terribly hard to replace, and as long as you disconnect the battery first when replacing them you shouldn't have a problem (except for maybe some access issues - It is a Van) - So yeah, if you can get to them - go for it - you won't hurt anything (Provided you do not cross thread anything) and you can always stop or put them back if you feel uncomforttable...Best of luck...

Vauxhall vivaro wont start cold


Sounds like a faulty cold start assistor. On top of the engine you will find an aluminium housing with four things that look like glow plugs screwed into it. These 'glow plugs' are only available complete with the housing fron Vauxhall. Approx £70 +
Airbag light is probably a fault with the seatbelt pretensioner.
Check the wiring under the seats for damage or perhaps the plugs have pulled apart.
