Have you attempted to cycle the glow plugs by switching the ignition on and off 3 times ?
No, I haven't tried that . Can you please be a bit more precise. I have no knowledge of car engines.Do I turn the ignition on and off after the glow plug light has gone out .
Hi, sorry it seems we missed each other last night. Ok, the glow plugs are set to come on then switch off again after a few seconds (as you can see from the light on the dashboard) As the glow plugs age they become week and don't heat up as fast as they used to, your symptoms are classic of tired glow plugs but the easy way to confirm this is to switch the ignition on until the glow plug lights goes out, when it does, switch the ignition off then back on to re-heat the plugs for a second time, repeat this for a third time, then start the engine, this gets the plugs super hot! If the engine now starts and runs nicely, the glow plugs are causing your problem and simply need replacing. Please get back to me if you have any further questions or need assistance with this, I will be more than happy to help, regards, Ross.
