you need to check your glow plug relay it is most likely going out you can jumper it to see if the glow plug light will come back on to start engine
The glow-plugs are located under the valve covers. There is a single wire that comes out of each injector harness that powers each glow-plug. Disconnect the single wire from the glow plug. Connect the gator clip of a test light to a positive and probe the glow plug terminal with the test light. If test light does not come on the glow plug is bad.
Yes. It is in the warning lights below the speedometer on the cluster. If the glow system isn't working the light will not come on.
Try checking all connections and the solenoid.
Check the water seperator filter. It may be full.

This test will determine what glow plugs are working. ( It will not determine a partially burnt plug ). Disconnect the glow plug wires at the plugs .( You must unplug all of them for this test to work ) Connect a test light to the positive terminal of the battery. Touch the electrical connector at the end of the glow plug with the test light. If the light goes on the glow plug is working. Make sure you touch only the electrical connector on the plug. If you touch any other part (metal) of the plug the test light will light giving you a false reading.
as far as i know C3's don't have a glow plug light or only use it when it is very cold i.e below freezing
You can actually check the glow plugs with a common test light unplug the wire feeding power to the glow plug and connect the alligater clip the hot post of your battery and touch the tip of the glow plug with tester if the light comes on the plug is good also if you have 3 of 4 burned out the glow plug system will not function properly
You can test each glow plug while still installed in the engine. Just get a test light and connect it to the positive terminal of the battery and touch the point of the test light to each glow plug terminal. If the light lights up the glow plug is good if not it is bad. You can replace the one or more that are bad or replace them all since they may not be too far behind.
when the glow plug light is flashing during driving it is not the plugs that need replaced it normally means you have a bulb blown most commonly one of your sidelights and once replaced your glow plug light will stop flashing
Wait until the light turns off then start the car. Diesel engine?
I had this problem and it was broken solder on the timing circuit board for the glow plugs
how to install glow plug on ford f350 l997
connect the ground end of a test light to the pos. side of the battery. now un hook the wires from the glow plugs or unbolt the terminals. after u have done this touch the tester to the glow plug terminals if it lights up it is good do this to all of them if the tester doesn't light up the glow plug is bad.
just remove the wire that is bolted on to the end of the glow plug , then remove the glow plug just like you would do on a spark plug , then screew the new glow plug in just like you would do on a spark plug , tighten up and reconect the wire to the end of the glow plug ,, JOB DONE !!!!!!
The glow plug controller or power solenoid has likely failed. The solenoid is located on the driver's side inner fender. If the solenoid tests ok with the key in run, then replace the glow plug controller.
Close to the glow plug is a freeze plug. Go to a auto part store and get radiator dye. Run about a week then with a light look for the color you put in around the plug. This will tell where the water is coming from. If water is coming from the glow plug this may mean a cracked block. Most likely it's a water plug. Some farm tractor part outlets have a tester for glow plugs.
where is the glow plug relay on a vw sharan 97
We're do I find glow plug relay
You must remove the water from the cooling system. Next, remove the retaining nut from the glow plug. The plug will come out. Reverse the process to install the new one.
Does "Wait to Start" light come on? Most likely the Glow Plug relay is bad
Several ways. Firstly make sure you are getting voltage to the glow plug. The easiest way is to connect a 12v lamp between the battery negative and the top of the glowplug. Turn the ignition on and the lamp should light. If lamp does not light the glow plug relay circuit has a problem. If lamp test OK remove it from the negative terminal and connect to the positive terminal of the battery. If lamp lights, glow plug OK. OR turn the ignition on for ten seconds and switch off again. feel the connector the top of the glow plug and it should be warm. OR disconnect wire and check with a meter between the glow plug contact and the engine block, the ohmic value should be less than 10.
Change the pre=heat (glow plug) relay.
All Mercedes cars will only go to the "Start" position only once, to prevent the initiation of the starter while the engine is running. Check the glow plug light before you try to start the engine. The light has to go out before you start the car. If the light doesn't come on, then you may have a problem with your glow plug relay, or one of your glow plugs is dead.
