Low state of charge on the battery may be the cause here or a failing battery. Have the battery charged and load tested.

Hi, I have a 2003 renault clio and a warning light came on last night its a bit hard to describe but its a small rectangle with a zig-zag line in it and just below this (same light) looks like a coil...


I loved your description - I knew exactly the thing you were talking about! My manual says that it is a warning light for "Heater plugs on" (if you have a diesel) and electronic fault (diesel or petrol). If this thing comes on while you are driving, you should really get it seen to as soon as possible. Sorry I can't say what the electronic fault is, but not possible without being able to inspect it physically.

If you have a diesel car, this thing should come on when you turn the ignition key to position M. If you wait a while it should go off to show that the heater plugs are hot enough for you to start the engine.

All the best!

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

FOrd EScort Van will not start


Check your fuel pump and the starter. It's either of the two that has fault.

Rate this please.

My car wont start, 1997 vauxhall astra 1.7 turbo diesel


This sounds like a problem in the fuel shut off circuit. When you turn the key on, it energizes the fuel shut off solenoid on the injection pump. When you turn off the key, power is removed and the pump is moved by spring to the fuel off position. Check for power at this terminal when you are having a problem, ( with the key on) If no power then I would check the wiring and connectors from this connection to the Ignition key. I believe it is wired direct. That can be checked at http://www.alldata.com/products/index.jsp

subscribe3 and get a wiring schematic for the car and see if it is wired direct to the ign switch of from a relay, I am sure it is a connection problem if you have no power.

A 1.7 diesel even if turboed, is dead slow in any vehicle let alone a van. Enjoy the fuel economy

good luck
