1983 MB 300D No Glow Plug Light
My 1983 MB 300D (181K) has recently been a little difficult to start. This morning I went to start and the glow plug light lit briefy then went out and the car wouldn't start. I kept turning the key on and off and sometimes the light worked briefly and other times it would not come on at all. The battery died quickly, it was six years old so I decided it was time to replace it anyway.
Installed the new battery and now the glow plug light won't come on at all. I checked the fuseable link and there are no apparent breaks. I changed the glow plugs 4 years ago at 110K.
Should I just go get new glow plugs? Any ideas on how to proceed from here would be greatly appreciated.
