    Default glow plug problem i think

    Hi,

    I have a problem with my 1.9 cdti vectra.

    On most mornings when the car is cold, the eml light comes on for between 2-5 minutes and then goes off as i drive around, i dont have any problems with cold start etc, but the light comes on every morning or when car is cold without fail. its not casuing me a problem as such but its just annoying not knowing what it is.


    Took it to the stealers, 2 or 3 times for diagnostics and they have told me its something to do with glow plugs.

    Anybody suffering from the same or know what it might be cheers.

    Had a similar problem with my Signum. Went back to the stealers 3 times in 4 days whilst under warranty. They told me to start with it was the glow plugs, then the relay, and finally a loose connection.
    I don't the stealers any more.

    if you know what you're doing with a multimeter get it on the rail and see how much juice is getting to your plugs.
