    is the batt full? also is it the relay? bypass the relay by putting bit
    of wire from live side of batt to one of the glow plugs. only for a
    bout 10 secs.try that, if that dont work try the relay.

    are u getting diesel to the engine?but it still sounds like that the
    relay is not getting the power to it and passing it on to the glow you have tryed a wire from live side of the batt to one of the
    glow plugs?

  5. You could try the pre-glow plug method of starting but it does strain the
    battery if it is not up to scratch.

    The method is:

    Press throttle to the floor. Then turn the key to run the starter motor.
    After a little while the engine will keep trying to fire and then start to
    kick in. DO NOT let go yet, keep the starter running until the engine
    starts to rev.

    If that works then your problem is almost certainly glow plug related. If
    it doesn't work, then you may have an air lock in your fuel line that needs
    bleeding. Again, the old fashioned way to do that was to slacken the pipe
    connection to the first injector and run the starter. As soon as fuel
    starts to escape from the joint, tighten it and repeat for all injectors.
    I believe there are more modern ways of doing it now but that method never
    used to fail.
