In Topic: Glow Plug problem

05 February 2012 - 07:18 PM

The engine not firing first time was probably more to do with the fuel temperarure than the glow plug.
Diesel does get a bit thicker in the cold.


Aha, fair enough. Still, however, curious as to why then my ignition coil light still doesnt light up even in the cold (snowing conditions). I did do a dashboard test and on the bulb test it shows the ignition coil lamp as working, but even in freezing conditions (i admit I havent had a thermometer out to test the cold, but snow on the car all night would suggest its minus conditions) it still doesnt appear. Should I just change the plugs and check the connections anyway? or is there another thing to suggest. Also my OBD2 scanner didnt pick up any faults.

I seem to be having this very same issue and I too got the same answers as above. So I wasnt concerned, until today. The temperature here in london has dropped and it snowed last night. So I thought I would go give the car a turn over and see if the glowplug light came on. So I turned it to position 2 all lights except the glowplug light came on. Now I assume the car is cold enough as I have about 5 inches of snow sat on the car. I did try starting the car and it turned over for about a a second and then cut out. I turned the ignition off, on to position 2 again, waited about 5 seconds and then tried to start it again, and this time it turned over and started. so, any new ideas?
