No power to the glow plugs means no power to the light also. You have a bad fuse or connection to the glow plug relay. Fix that and your good to go. Has nothing to do with your indicator lights on either side of dash. Glow Plug power indicator is labeled THAT and only that.

yes,have an idea! when the turn signal works on one side or other really fast, you have a blown front or back blown turn signal light bulb.remove the back first,it's usually the one that blows fisrst,but not always! you may have to look or inspect the rear bulb. it will have a blown element in the bulb itself.look at the bulb for a very small wire inside of the bulb,if the metal ring inside the bulbs broken will not work. unfortunatlly, you will have to remove one at a time. i would start at the rear,unless,you've hit something,or been stuck in snow from the front side. if you have been stuck in snow,i would go to the end that's been stuck and start there.other wise just start at the rear and check for a blown signal light will be in the yellow portion of the turn light. the bulb that lights up the yellow portion of your tail light turn signal.if it's in the rear,you will need to access the bulb from inside the rear hatch assembly. if in front, you will need to remove the turn signal light. hope i've helped you! thank you for choosing

Colt diesel takes a long time to start. glow plugs and battery are new. some one suggested glowplug relays or the black box. what can i do to check if its any of the two or what do you recommend i do

if the ignition controls the amount of time glow plugs are on for flick the ignition off and on 3-5 times each time letting the glow plug symbol glow untill it turns off then try starting. if its still slow to fire your glow plugs are not working at all. start by backtracing the glow plugs from the adjoining bar back to wherever it comes from for breaks, then replace your glow plug relay in the fuse box usually.

if its manual glowing just glow it for 10-12 seconds and try.if its not firing then the glows arent getting the power they need

Location glow plug relay

Why not save even more money?
Get a test light and put it onto the tip of the glowplug then get someone to turn ignition on. See if test light turns on.
This needs to be done when cold or it wont work.
The coolant temp sensor switches the glowplug relay via the ecu, so when hot, it wont switch.
A computer diagnostic test would be the best bet to clearly verify a relay failure.

How to change glow plugs

Quick lesson Diesel 101, repair only what is broken. There is no reason to replace glowplugs if they work. There are other things that make the glowplugs work or fail to work.

You should be able to follow the wires from the glowplugs up to a box or module. This module is a timer. Its job is to vary the length of time the glowplugs work depending on atmospheric temperature and engine temperature. Then follow the wires from the timer module to a power relay. This part receives the signal from the ignition switch and transfers high power to the timer module.

Only when these are checked, should you blame the glowplugs. For glowplug testing you take them out and use battery jumper cables. You hook one terminal to the base and avoid crushing the threads. You then touch the other battery cable to the top of the glowplug. You can melt them, so do not overdo it.

When you find the brightest, that is your benchmark. Bad glow plugs only have as long as the timer allows for them to glow. Replace the darker ones, use the brighter ones.

Other than that point, glowplugs have no adjustment and come out like regular sparkplugs.

I hope this was helpful.

I have a 1994 F-350 with a glow-plug issue when you first turn the key to the on position the wait to start comes on for 2 sec goes out an the relay controller starts to tick like a clock for about 15 sec...

I would test the glowplugs themselves...Just hook a test light to the positive side of your battery and touch the probe to the top of the glowplug. It should ground out through the glowplug and turn the light on. If it doesn't then you have a bad glowplug.

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?

Glowplug light

Hi ,
You need to have the fault codes read,this will point you in the right direction,the revs die as it is going into limp home mode to protect itself,by turning the ignition off and then on you reset the ecu untill it detects the fault again.
