Hi guys, I'm having a problem with starting the Patrol. If I crank the engine after glow plug light extinguishes it won't start. If I glow it 3 - 4 times first, then crank, it'll fire straight away. I have checked the continuity of all glow plugs and all ok, also it idles perfect ( no misfire) so once again rules out glow plugs. Checked voltage on initial glow all ok.

Your thoughts and ideas most welcome.

You sound like you know what you are talking about but i will ask the question anyway

When you checked the glow plugs for continuity did you remove the rail

Also do you have the factory workshop manual that describes how the system works and gives test procedures for all the glow system componants

Don, yeah I removed the rail.

I've also unplugged the control unit and cleaned the contacts on plug. That seemed to work first time but went straight back to old habits.

Waiting for workshop manual to arrive in the mail. I've been burnt every time I have tried to down load one.
