    glow plug light

    my 99 astra 2.0 di doesnt seem to have the glow plug light lighting on the dash. the last few days when its been minus 7 its started but been lumpy for about 5 seconds and the yellow light with the square box and electrical signal in has flashed faintly. ive changed all 4 plugs tonight and it still doesnt light up but starts ok. but im worried in the morning its going to cause trouble. any ideas.

    I believe on the di low pressure turbo there is a relay for the glowplugs somewhere near the battery It could be that causing your problem. Some one else with more knowledge can probably confirm this.

    yes i see it has that its clipped to the edge of the tray. ive read up and it seems lots of people have changed these with no luck. and found by unplugging the temp sensor then the glow plug light comes on. so if its not the relay maybe i could put a switch into the temp sensor wiring to turn the sensor off when its cold starting and turn it back on when the car has started,
