Just a couple of cold mornings.but no frost upto yet.the car been a pig to start.must turn over a dozen times before it fires up-but does.
from hot starts on the button no probs.
the pre-heat light only comes on a couple of seconds from cold?is this normal?
no pre heat light when hot.
When cold the little service light comes on and stays on for a couple of minutes? handbook says this is electrical fault?
i cannot get the connection off the glow plugs all 4 are solid.otherwise i would check there is 12volts there when pre-heat light is on.-but i can here the relay for the glow plugs click.
Basically i have not taken the car in antwhere to get tested as the last 2 weeks i had me dad in hospital,my wife ill with heart problems and i work full time so as you can guess ive been run off my feet so to speak.
if from cold i remove the coolant sensor connection off top of the thermostat then the pre-heater lamp will stay on a good 5 seconds and the car will start easy.then plug back in the sensor.
ive done a reasistance test on the sensor from cold and the hot and got 2 very different readings in ohms-would say that could be right?
has anyone else had the same or any auto sparkys or mechanics on here come acroos this before
