fuel reserve lite

still having trouble with reserve fuel lite staying on anytime engine is runing. also can someone tell me where glow plug relay is located? The glow plug lite will not come on until 2nd. turn of the switch key.Being an Alabama shadetree mechanic, these minor problems give me a fit. Can some good buddy help? Will appreciate .

i dont know what kind of car you have, but these links are absolutely great, if you dont have it already; download the adobe reader (free at www.adobe.com) and this will get you going

the light being on might mean one of the strands in the fuel sender is broken or disconnected.

the glow plug relay is on the firewall, but i know not where exactly!

oh yeah-- hello from a fellow alabamian dieseler=) whereabouts are you in our fair state?

what kind of automobile?

RE: fuel reserve lite

There's a good chance that the fuel light stays on becuase of a problem with the sending unit (see link). The glow plug relay is on the drivers side fender well just behind the headlight, it's a rectangular box and if you pull the cover off you'll see a white cable on a terminal connected to a fuse and a 5-terminal plug (assuming you have a five cylinder engine).

RE: fuel reserve lite

My car is a 1982 240D 4 banger. A very good car except for these minor glitches. 315000 miles and runs great.
I live in Jackson County in north east AL. I'm going out shortly and check these suggestions you have given.

thank you so much, oldcarpappy.
