Hi, i have searched but could not find the answer to my problem so..

I recently got a 1987 300D turbo. For the 1st couple months it would start every time without hesitation. Then, it was slow turning over, so I got a new battery (my stereo had killed it) and that fixed the slow to start.
Now, I would always turn the key "on" then wait for the glow light to go off before starting the car, but all of a sudden the glow light does not go on anymore, and it wont start.

I pulled the intake mani and changed the glow plugs, but the light still doesn't come on when i turn the key "on".

What could be causing the glow light not to come on? I believe that the problem lies within the glow plug system. Because I was able to start the car without the glow light coming on, but only once.

I had similar issue with my 190D. I replaced the glow plug relay (on that car it was easy to access mounted on the drivers side wheel well) and problem solved.

good luck
