I have changed the glow plugs and the car started well initially. After running it for a day and having it start ok I left it for a weekend and on the Monday it did not start. Cngine would crank but not fire. Push started ok. Had an auto-electrician look at it and changed the plugs again along with the relay. Vehicle started first time. Next morning same problem and the car would not start, cranks ok.
Checked the voltage of battery - 12.4v, checked the voltage getting to the metal bar connecting the 4 glow plugs - 12.4v while coil light is on on the dashboard and 0v when off. Relay works ok. Measured resistance of gow plug rail to ground 88k ohms.
Any suggestions where to look next as I cannot afford to replace 4 glow plugs on a daily basis.
have the same problem?
