You may have just one battery operating.A deisel requires alot to turn it over due to the high amount of compression. I would suggest haveing both batteries tested, disconnected to determine if this is the problem.

Were is the starter relay for a 1994 2.8l diesel hilux


Many diesels have two start relays. One is located on the starter motor and is often called the starter solenoid. The other is operated by the ignition key and will typically located under the hood somewhere in the engine compartment. If you don't have a wiring diagram or manual, the easiest way to find it is to disconnect the main power cable from the starter motor and then operate the ignition key into the start position. You should hear the relay clicking.

Don't just keep cranking if it don't start right away' Give the starter a break. It's getting hot because you just keep cranking on it. Any vehicle diesel has glow plugs to heat the fuel chamber to make it start fast. Be sure you are making use of the glow plugs and it will start fast. If your glow plugs are not working, find out why. Could be just the glow plug relay or connection to it. Or possibly the glow plugs are burned out. Either way, you HAVE to have glow plugs in use on a diesel upon initial start up till it's warmed up. Then will start without them. Most are automated system. You just have to wait till the glow plug light goes out to start cranking on it. I hope this helps you to more understand the workings of a diesel cold start system.

Truck wont start, but only if you hear a click


I copied this from my GM service manual for 1982 6.2 diesel.

1. If the glow plug relay is not clicking on and off then turn the ignition to the RUN position and connect a 12V test light to ground and touch the pink/black wire in the glow plug relay connector.

2. If the light is off repair the open cicuit in the pink/black wire to the splice.If the light is on then touch the light blue at the glow plug relay connector.

3. If the light is off replace the glow plug relay. If the light is on, disconnect the connection at the thermal controller and touch the black wire in the connector.

4. If the light is off, repair the open circuit in the light blue wire from the thermal controller to the glow plug relay. If the light is on repair open circuit in black wire back to a splice. If no trouble is found replace the controller.



You should also get your hands on this Haynes book. Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part # 10330. Excellent coverage on the 6.2 and 6.5. In it, they say that early 82\'s have a hole at the number 2 hole on the pin connector of the wire harness for the thermal controller. this allows dirt in there and corrodes the pins. Remove the connector and clean thoroughly the pin area on the connection and controller. Seal the hole with some silicone. If things are still acting up, replace the wire harness connector.



Hope some of this helps.

Have a load test done on the batter to check for failing cells. For diesels to start any thing less than a fully charged battery good battery is a waste of time as the engine needs fast RPM to heat the air to ignite the fuel and slow rpm's just doesn't cut it.

Landcruiser early 80 turbo diesel wont start


Presuming it is swinging (starter turning engine) and the glow plugs are working well and diesel is clean, the other alternatives are a drop in fuel pressure through the injectors which is necessary to ignite the diesel, or engine compression. If the compression is too low the diesel will not ignite. Test the injectors and compression across al cylinders. Being a turbo the compression si already lowered and the slightest drop will have an effect. Happy hunting.

There is a big fuse in the engine room for the glowplugs.
You'll find it just near the brake vacuum cilinder under a black cap...
Hear if the glow relay ticks when you'll put power on. Does the glow light lights on?
