I have had a problem with engine failing to start since changing battery, there is a wiring connection fitted on the bulkhead directly behind the battery and about 6" above it and by chance i moved it and the engine started does anyone know what this is as it obviously has a bearing on the starting can it be removed to clean it ect, any advice would be much appreciated.
thanks Chas.

I think it also contains a large fuse.
No expert but sounds like a lose connection.
I'd dismantle having first disconnected the battery, clean connections and reassemble having remembered where everything goes.
Probably worth taking photos as you go.

That is what your problem is. The unit is the all in one glow plug heaters/relay/timer unit. A loose connection & you will have problems.

While you about it check the earthing strap to the bodywork - uncouple it, clean it and reconnect with vaseline over it.

Because that can cause all sorts of electrical problems.

On our 2005 2.8JTD the battery on its tray fits very close to the wiper linkage.
If you have to remove the battery or work around that area its always safest to disconnect the earth end first and fold the cable out of the way.
Sorry if its teaching peoples to suck eggs but it could go bang on you!

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
When you say connection to the bulkhead, do you mean the wire itself is directly connected to the bulkhead or the wire goes to a connection of some sort that is secured to the bulkhead?
