Have you made sure there is power to the glowplug relay. If there is power to teh relay make sure the entire wire harness for the glow plugs is intact and there are no shorts or breaks. If all of the above are good . You can pull the plugs and bench test them with a pair of jumper cable . You will need to place the neg. clamp on the threaded part and touch the pos. clamp to the end that the wire harness attaches to for no move than 15 sec. the plug will glow red at the other end if the plug is still good. Carefully placed the plug on a non-flamable surface untill the plugs are cold. If more than 4 plugs test bad I would replace all of them at one time if you can afford that price.

Sounds like it's the controller for the glow plugs, also, if the first glow plug in line from the controller is bad it will effect all the others. I've had this same sitituation, mine turned out to be the controller.

Where is glow plug relay on a 2007 f350 6.0


I can solve this problem for you but I need the right information. They have your truck listed as a 2003 F-350. Then it is also listed as a 2007 and want to know where the glow plug relay is. I need the correct year and model with the proper engine displacement.

How do you change the glow plugs and relay in a F350 1997


Hello, here is the proceedure. Any questions please ask. Good luck. CAUTION The red-striped wires on the 1994-96 DI Turbo engine carry 115 volts DC. A severe electrical shock may be given. Do not pierce the wires.
  1. Make sure the ignition switch is OFF.
  2. For 1994-96 engines, remove the valve cover.
  3. Disconnect the wire connector from the glow plug.
  4. Using a 10mm deep socket, with enough clearance as to not break or bend the wiring connector, unscrew the glow plug from the manifold.
To install:
  1. Place anti-seize on the threads of the glow plug and screw it into the manifold.
  2. Tighten the glow plug to 12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm).
  3. Plug the wiring connector.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
  5. For 1994-96 engines, install the valve cover.

92 F350 7.3 Glow plug problem


check the wiring harnesses under the valve covers. The heat damages them. Frd has connector kits to service them versus $600 harness. Some dealers know about kits, others do not.
Cycling says reays are working but glow plugs are not getting current. My guess.

1989 ford f350 diesel wont start


Bad glow plugs most probably or the glow plug controller. to check your glow plugs remove wire and check with ohm meter to ground. if they are working you should get a low ohm reading if one has a high ohm reading it is bad. if all injectors check good make sure your fuses are ok, also check and see if you hear the controller click when you turn the key to on. Does the wait to start light come on?
