    My heater/glow plug light Goes out straight away use to stay on about 8/9 seconds, now just flashes, obviously engine wont start.
    Is it Glow plugs or relay.
    Mos are that the relay is not holding the high power rate and is immediately dropping the power.
    Just trying to save wasting money.
    Thanks in anticipation

    i'd say relay.

    i think they are thermal bi-metal....like an indicator relay.

    If it's a mercedes the glow plug lamp flashes when one or more of the heater plugs are defective .
