Its very similar to replacing a spark plug. Unless you have a scheduled maintenance interval you just leave them alone.

If you are having problems you test each glowplug in the following way. Remove the glowplug from the engine. Get car jumper cables and put the negative wire on the casing away from the threads. Touch the positive cable to the top structure of the glowplug causing sparks. This is of course having the battery cables connected to the battery appropriately.

You can melt the glowplug. But if the glowplug resists heating up, resists glowing, it is bad. Just ordinary small gauge wiring will melt. You need jumper cables and even they can get hot. Thats all truckers have done for the big rigs.

99 FordF250 Code p1391 & p1393


Hello
Here are the meanings of these codes.
P1391 FORD - Glow Plug Circuit Low Input Bank #1
P1393 FORD - Glow Plug Circuit Low Input Bank #2
I think you most likely have a burnt out Glow pug controller. Whenever this controller is replaced all glow plugs should be tested for proper function.

VW 2005 ?? think this is a dealer only job because not sure when this vehicle manufacturer started using encrypted software ,so iam not sure if its the glow plug relay faulty ?' 37euros new or a burnt connection in the big fuses support connectors ,i would be inclined to check the big fuses near the battery in case you have a burnt wire or connector ,because loss of contact then it arcs over would cause the glow plugs to come on because it thinks its being started when the power is turned on again

Check up glow plugs (4 pieces) and glow plug relay placed inside left bottom area near clutch pedal. It is no.4 relay from left to right. Verify also all electrical cables. In most cases the glow plug relay is out of order.

No power to glow plugs...relay replaced...still no power...jumped 12 v to glow plug side of relay and glow plugs then energize. Can ignition be at fault?(1999 jetta alh)


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?
