Where is relay for heater glow plugs located


The relay is in easy view on the top of the motor, a little to the right side (passenger side). You will see two identical relays. One of them, the large battery cable goes to the intake air heater. The other relay is for your glow-plugs.

1993 Chey Van 30 6.2 Diesel Van. Looking Fuse block for glo plug fuse


There is no fuse. The glow plugs work on relays. If you are having trouble with the glow plug system then Haynes has an excellent manual for the Chevy 6.2. It is part # 10330, Haynes Techbook, Diesel Engine Repair Manual. It cost about $20.

Blowing fuse


You are looking for a bare spot on a wire. When the glow plugs are powered up the system is shorting out. Start tracing wires. Work back from the glow plugs to the relay. If its not there, you'll have to start tracing the wires from the relay to their destinations. When you find it, tape it up and reposition the wire so it won'trub again. Hope this helps.

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.
