    Unhappy Where is the glow plug relay?? Any help please

    Hi Folks,
    I've recently bought an X reg Diesel Astra and it is an absolute pig to start in the morning.I've had a friend look at it and he says there is no current at the glow plugs when the ignition is switched on,indicating it might be the control relay at fault.Can anyone tell me where this relay is fitted and what it looks like??
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Welcome mate

    I can't give a exact answer without knowing your engine code but on all the diesel engines it appears to be next to the battery between that and the inner wing.

    It may also be worth checking the large fuses under the bonnet
