Thank you,
OK this is due to the glow plug heater or the glow plugs themselves were these checked?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
The glow plugs had been fitted at the garage.the weather was warm then,and the car started easily from cold.
When the weather started to get colder the car took longer to start.
Then the weather got colder again and the car refused to start without easy start
As for the glow plug heater,Ihad not heard it mentioned at the garage,so I will have to do more research on it myself.
I also asked about the fuel filter needing changed,and was told that this was not the problem..
That's when they advised giving it more time after the glow plug light went out before trying to start the car.
That was ok. When the weather was not cold.
Ok the glow plug relay is the issue then from your description. It gives the signal for the glow plugs to heat up as well as the time frame. This needs to be checked next for this issue . The only other issue could be dirty fuel injectors and having them cleaned will help. The relay needs to be focused on next . Hoped this helped . Please rate excellent service so I can get credit for my help thanks . Bonuses greatly appreciated .
