That might help too if you havent already seen it

page 86 suggests that it might be worth checking the coolant temp sensor, then the glow plug controller/timer. Although I havent had mine very long, so i wouldnt be able to tell you where they are located Im afraid!

Just bridge the relay and make sure that is the fault.

Hi there,
As already mentioned test the relay and glow plugs first.
Is the relay clicking, if not check the wiring on the relay to activate it.
If the relay is clicking then test the output using a voltmeter from the relay then at the each plug.
If I was in a fix with a glowplug relay I would purchase a 100 amp relay from Ebay for around £13, A switch for the dash for about £2.
Place the switch on the dash some where, wire up to activate the relay.
Attach wires to the relay for the live & glowplugs.
Run a wire to the Glow Plug light on the dash from the live side of the glow plug feed, this way the light comes on when you press the switch to activate the glow plugs but it will also stay on if you ever have issues with the contacts in the relay sticking.
