Glow Plug Woes
The other day my glow plug light stopped working and no glo plug help as if a switch was thrown on my 83 300SD. So I replaced the glow plug relay. Now the glow plug light comes on(great!) but for a lot longer time than it used to, 15sec?(huh?), but it appears it doesnt help the car as it still wont start(blast it!). I was able to start car cold yesterday with bad relay with much trying, but this morning with new relay not getting it done. So what in tarnation is going on?
Dont think this matters but will say anyway--the new relay is not mounted to the fender-didnt have time to
do it right--was planning on doing that when I have daylight free time. The mounting tabs are plastic so
I figured it was needed for ground.....
