Starting Delay On 54 Diesel Galaxy

6 posts in this topic

Help please as new to this site. Just got a cracking 54 plate galaxy but had an irritating starting issue. Once glow plugs out, i turn the key and fires, then as though power all gone and if hold key for a couple of seconds starts no probs. Thought due to time of year battery so got new one but no difference. Any ideas? Worried the wife and kids will get caught out one morning !

Could be a glow plug issue then.

Best bet would be to get it plugged into VAG com diagnostic software to read the fault codes.

I didn't know that...

I'm guessing it's the same engine as in the VW sharan and the Seat Alhambra (or whatever it's called) as its the same shape then...
