Hiya

Have you got a registation fo the vehicle so I can check for wiring diagrams.

I suspect the problem lies with the Glow Plugs. This is the usual cause. There is also a thermal block which decrease the time taken for the engine to warm up. This doesn't however aid the starting.

Regards

Phillip
