l200 cold starting problems
« on: December 27, 2009, 12:49:33 »
hi there.

I'm new here and i was wondering if anyone can help me out?

my 03 l200 has developed a cold starting problem.
i changed the glow plugs and that didn't work.
then i tested the glow rail and doesn't seem to be any power going to it.
doesn't seem to be a glow relay so i was wondering if the battery relay has a live feed to the glow rail and if that could be the problem?

if anyone has had this problem please help, I'm going mad.

cheers
jay

cheers for that.
the flow fuse is gone and so is the battery relay.
just have to wait for the motor factors to open again after Christmas.

thanks for your help

i put a multi meter on the glow plug rail and its only coming up with 3 volts with they key on glow.
might be the battery or the glow plug timer?
any ideas?
