    Thats a good things isn't it?

    I hate it when mine doesn't come on if it's been stood all day. I'm just cranking the thing then it fires up, massive cloud of smoke then all is well.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply steve.
    It's not a bad thing just wondered why it suddenly started doing it. car starts fine and runs ok, it just seems strange that one day there was no light then next day it was on for 10 seconds without a drop in outside temp.
    thanks again.

    Hi
    I've got the same problem with my 1.7td.
    if i leave the ignition turned on for sometime it will finally light up the glow plug light and then you can start it.
    Any idea what the problem is?

    Right i'm waiting for Autosparks to reply because he knows all about vauxhall wiring, bit isn't there a Glow Plug Relay, or a Relay Timer, if could be faulty.

    In the engine bay pax side just under the windscreen (inline with the bat) there is a fuse/relay box cover and inside bottom left is a 30amp fuel heater relay fuse (bottom left) and directly above that there is the fuel heater relay. Check the fuse first. You will proberly also find an EC relay inside, also you may have to fiddle a bit to find right one and of course your set up inside the box may vary.
