    Default 1.9cdti won't start!!

    Hi all, got a 2005 1.9cdti (120) that will not start. Had engine diagnostics done and they came up that the glo-plugs were on their way out but it could be the battery also. Changed the battery and replaced all 4 plugs last week and started ok(ish). Yesterday and today needed a jump start! Car "wants" to start but after a minute or so of cranking the engine the battery dies. Don't think the is a current gettin sent to the glo-plugs could it just be the relay that needs replacing? Driving me crazy as I had to replace the steering rack recently so not exactly flush with cash at the mo. Any advice would be a great help.

    I'd start by checking that the trottle valve has not failed and jammed closed, then dump all the fuel, check the filter and refill it. If there are no more fault codes, it will be a pain but water in the fuel creates and intermittent starting fault. Don't crank the starter motor for more than ten seconds at a time and give it 30 seconds to cool before trying again.
