Do you mean the orange light with a engine symbol on it, if yes then you have a issue with the injection system and the ECU is warning you, this could that the injector are not working corectly. have you serviced the car? could be the petrol filter full of dirt that went to the injectors, try to add injectors clean aditive in the tank, drive a while and if still lights on, I will suggest to clean/replace the injectors.

Why does my 2004 (Land cruiser) PRADO 3000 Turbo Diesel 5sp- have issues starting when it's cold? It turns over and over does nothing, then when it starts, I get a big plume of smoke, then it idles rough...


glow plugs are activated if look on the dash when you turn the ignition just before cranking and you should see a light that stays on for several seconds then goes out and then you should crank the engine ! sometimes when its really cold or the glow plugs are worn try turning the ignition on and off each time light goes out 2 or 3 times to get more heat on the plugs then start ! if this doesnt work then glow plus and system needs checking !

Had 04 transit connect for 6 weeks. always started fine till week ago when turned cold. glow plug light only shows for about 1 second, replaced glow plugs but still the same. can only start every morning...


Sounds like the timer is bad. Since you have power when warm, the power relay must be giving the timer juice. The way it is suppose to work is you wait until the glow plug light goes out and then try to start. In cold weather it should take longer for the glow plug light to go out.

MY 6.0 TURBO DIESEL IS HARD TO START


I drive a 2004 F-350 with a 6.0l. 5 glow plugs are out, have to start on ether when temp is below 40 deg F. CAUTION turn key on, wait for glow plug light to go out, spray approx 3 seconds, start.

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!

I have renault scenic megane 02 diesel i had provblems starting have had the glow plugs replaced but now when i put key in ignition glow plug light comes on and goes off within one second try to start car...


hallo
1.5 or 1.9 dci does not engage glow plugs until -4?C or below. so, check if fuel does not drain (in the morning). or if batery is week. try start with cabels (jump start) and see if start sooner.
another thong is if EGR valve always stays open (stick)
hope it helps

I have a 1998 1.8 diesel van, once its running its ok, but getting it started can be difficult (esp in cold/damp) Have you got any tips for starting, does this model have a heater plug, if so what symbol...


Sounds like the glow plugs are frazzled. There is one electrical wire going to a plug, then each plug is connected in sequence. The glow plugs are heating devices used to get the fuel up to temperature before ignition.

They are fiddly to replace, but are relatively inexpensive and the most common source of issues with cold-starting diesel engines (first thing to fail).

Some cars had a 'pre-heat' available with glow plugs, where you simply turn the key part-way to 'on' and you would see a glow plug light come on (looks a bit like a picture of a spring). If you see this light on your van, you can turn the key to turn on the glow plugs and they will pre-heat your engine slightly and make starting easier

2005 f350 that sometimes starts.Problem seems to


This is a diesel I assume.

Before anything else, you have to find out if it is a fuel delivery problem or a glow plug problem or, are your batteries tired? (Not cranking fast enough) Batteries have to be replaced every 3-5 years on a diesel.

1) Check your lift pump. It brings the fuel to the injection pump. It should make a buzzing noise when working. (You can feel the vibration if you put your hand on it.) It should buzz as soon as the key is turned to the on position without having to crank the engine.)

2) Check glow plugs. If the wait light only goes on for two seconds, then your glow plugs are burning out. (The wait light usually is on for at least ten seconds. Longer if it's really cold.)

3) Or the injection pump itself is weak. (Hopefully it's not this, as it can be very expensive to replace. We only want to do this as a last resort.)

Let me know

1995 mitsubishi pajero glow plugs


When you turn on the key, a relay engages for a few seconds and heats up the glow plugs. It sounds like the relay is not passing current, which could indicate either corroded contacts, or a bad relay all together. I would guess the former since your panel light indicates the relay is functioning correctly. I would suggest replacing the relay, or possibly if you feel comfortable with it, disassemble the relay and clean the contacts.
