    Red face bad start prt 2

    hi all, i posted a thread at the start of the week telling how my car took ages to start in the morning or anytime when its been left to sit! so far i have replaced the battery, glow plugs, fixed a vacum pipe and the last thing which was done yesterday the coolant temp sensor! i thought i had it licked with the temp sensor because the car starts first time when i remove the connection from it but its doing the same thing with the new one in? but i noticed with it disconnected the glow plug light stayed on for twice as long than normal (and it starts 1st time) so could it be whatever tells my glow plugs to stay on thats the problem?? they only seem to stay on for 2-3 sec,s tops this is driving me crazy need help cheers! 1.9 cdti 8v 120 bhp sig06

    Possibly the glow plug control relay, the big one near the battery compartment, as i understand it, that's what controls the length of time the glow plugs are on for. i do know that the temp sensor is used to tell the relay the engine temp, I also believe it uses the outside temp sensor to tell the ecu the ambient air temp as the glow plugs are only used when it falls below a certain value. Maybe there is a member near you that you could try their glow control relay before buying a new one.

    I just find it strange that it starts 1st turn when coolant temp sensor is disconnected and it's clear the glow light is on for much longer than it is when the sensor is connected, that's why I'm thinking the fault is to do with the length of time they should be on!
