SOURCE: trouble shooting procedure glow plugs '93 VW Golf 1.9 diesel

What you need to do is make sure the key is off, remove glow plugs, hook a set of jumper leads to your battry, put the negative lead around the threaded part of the plug, hold the + jumper lead to the top of the plug where the power rail bolts on. DO NOT TOUCH glow plugs as they will heat up hot & fast. If the light comes on 6 - 8 sec thats how long you need to hold the power on. The tip of the plug should be nice & red hot in this time. Repeat for all plugs & see the diffrence If more than 2 are dead (no red heat) or noticably slower than the others It will be very difficult to start & the plugs should be replaced. AGAIN carefull not to get burned.

2006 w/5.9 Cummins. my glow plug light ABS light and brake light comes on and goes off when it wants to when my glow plug light comes on the truck loses power can you help me


Sounds like your ignition switch might be worn and need replaced. It is pretty common for the glow plugs to draw quite a few amps. they just aren't usually on when the truck is running.

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.

1983 Chevy Silverado, Glow plug light will not come on, Truck will turn over but not start, fuse panel has no blown fuses, I suspect the Glow Plug Relat but I don't know how to verify it is bad.


With most relays, you have 4 wires. One is power to the component the relay controls, one is a ground to the relay magnet, one is power to the magnet, and the fourth goes to the component, in this case the glow plugs. The ground usually comes from the computer.
With the key on you should have power to two terminals and you would jumper the hot terminal to the glow plug terminal. Or use a test light or meter to check for power on the glow plug circuit.

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!

2001 Jetta Tdi runs rough


Hi Whitneyford
Your priblem sounds more like the glow plug timer relay than the exhaust. White smoke after start up is a sign of diesel entering the exhaust before it has burned completly. This is as a result of the glow plugs switching off too early, which is usually caused by one or more faulty glow plugs or a faulty timer.With engine COLD, IGNITION ON... Check voltage with all 4 plugs connected. You should have a reading of 10--12 volts
If there is no power, check in-line fuse on loom coming to plugs.
If power is present, check for How Long. If only for a few seconds, the problem is with the timer. This unit (the larger of the relays and usually black in colour) is fitted on the fuse board, and there are a few different types. They come in 7 pin..8 pin..and even 9 pin units.
The glow plug light is often NOT accurate (even with a new timer unit fitted) as to the time of heating, and you will almost certainly find that power will flow to the plugs for quiet some time after the light goes out. This is not unusuall with The Jetta Tdi.
Good luck.
I hope this helps you sort out this problem

Car won't start because the glow plugs aren't glowing


Does the glow light come on? Check for power with a test light on the glow plugs.
