Connect a volt meter to earth and glow plug supply wire, turn ignition on, should get a battery voltage reading for about 10 seconds, if not the timer relay is not supplying power. If you get voltage, remove the glow plugs and test with an ohm meter for resistance, (no reading? open circuit, not working). Heater relay is a heavy duty relay with a 60amp battery supply, generally in the bulk head area. (DON'T DIRECT FEED THE GLOW PLUG! could burn them out)

What voltage do i require to use NGK Y103V glow plugs in my Kaboto 3 cyl engine and will a simple push button type switch be adequate .

glow plugs on a diesel should be the same voltage as the battery voltage that vehicle has , the glow plug relay takes this power and allows it to go to glow plugs for first few minutes of starting , some of them cycle the power on/off several times a minute to control the temp of glow plug but the voltage is allways the power of the battery , this may only not be true on large trucks and tractors (im talkin big !) they use 36 volts to start but then as soon as started cut back to 12 or 24 volts

Glow plug relay

81418784532&item=281418784532">G1900 Kubota, the glow plugs are energized when the keyswitch is moved halfway to the start position. Also the glow plug indicator light is illuminated when in this position. I hold the key in that position until the glow plug light goes out, and then crank the engine. On really cold days I repeat the glow plug cycle several times before cranking.

Correct procedure for starting tractor?

Just till the plug / light glows then start, if you hold it too long the glow plugs wil burn out causing hard starting.

I have a 1997 ford F350 WITH A 7.3L DIESEL, it turns over but will not start. My wail to start light or other indicator lights do not come on when I turn on the key.

The first thing to do is locate the owner manual.

Look for the glow plug relay MAIN FUSE location.

The glow plug portion of your van is not working.

This difficulty scale from 1 to 10 is a 9.

You will need a DVM and tool undo the cables to each glow plugs.

It's a 1 to 2 hours troubleshooting job.

I'm going to fire off a quick list

Check / replace blown glow plug relay main fuse

Disconnect each center nut of the glow plug wire. PLEASE CHECK ONE AT A TIME.

Read the resistance between the center of the glow plug and the metal base of the plug.

Please take good note on each glow plug resistance reading.

MAKE SURE all cables are put back and tighten properly.

Compare the resistance on all cylinders.

OPEN/high resistance is bad glow plug.

In general 3 ohm or less is OK.

You should buy one and use its value as baseline.


Glow plug relay can be bad.

You will need the VOM and a friend to turn the key.

Check the voltage to each glow plugs. It should be 12.6-13.6 volt.

Be careful,the plugs will get HOT.

Compare the voltage on each cylinders.

So the problem can be combination of

glow plug relay

glow plug relay main fuse

glow plugs

ignition switch is unlikely but I'm going to list it anyway.

Once again,this is a difficult and time consuming job. I will ask a friend to help out,

Good luck.
