Hi just bought a VW Caddy Diesel 2006 and having problems starting it in the morning. Changed glowplugs but not made any difference. Any suggestions?


Hi there?
Have you checked if they have power goint to the glow plugs with the ignition on.
What is the temperature sensor reading in the morning, if it reads little bit worm then it thinks that the engine is worm and it wont power the glow plugs.

Your diesel requires the glow-plugs to heat up to start when cold. This is why the truck smoked excessively when you pull it to start the motor. Siince you are not having the glow-plugs warm up via the "Timer" for them and you are getting intermittent Solenoid response from the tickler wires on the Solenoid, there is one common point.

The Ignition switch is the common point. You should also observe if your "Start" light is getting the feedback from the glow plug "Timer". Replace the Ignition switch and see if you hear the "Timer" clicking before a cold start. You can also take a 12 volt test-light or gauge and check the wires to the glow-plugs when cold. The glowplugs should be getting power from the until the glow-plugs heat up.

Remove and check the glow-plugs. A good way is to remove all of them, and take some jumper cables to each briefly. BE careful as they can melt and you can ruin the threads with the jumpers. Comparison is the best way to describe testing them. They should heat up the same for all. The glow-plugs that stay dark the longest are bad.

Ask the auto parts place if they show an Ignition relay for your Diesel. This would cover the poor starts when warm. Also tell them it is a Diesel when getting the Ignition switch.

had this before and i have always ended up rewiring the control unit feed ,i tried every which way to find the fault and then i gave up blaming the fancy computer controlled software .I just ran a feed to the unit from the ignition switch to turn it on when ignition is turned on in extreme cases i have fitted a push button type switch on the dash ignition controlled that operates the relay for the glow plugs direct .

Just fitted new tdi1900 engine.will start off tow ,wont start off the key, can you help. maz


Verify the glow plugs are functional. Check for +12v on the glow plug circuit when the key is turned on. If the engine is used, consider replacing the glow plugs. Good luck.

Glow plug problems. Engine won't start.


Did you ever find a solution to this? I have a 2000 Hyundai Galloper (basically the same car) and I am having the exact same problem. I have replaced the glow plugs 3 times in the past 12 months.
