    I swear these b****y cars can read your mind, my Brera has decided to throw up a warning light for the glow plugs. The thing starts OK, as well as it has ever done, by comparison to our VW powered Jeep it’s not so great. Anyway, the warning light comes on saying that the heaters are not...

    My car has part number 55183073 but all I can find new on eBay is 5188255. Does anyone know what the difference is and if the ones on eBay will do the job?

    Hi Getting local garage to try to sort a diagnosed canbus issue for this warning but occasionally there are puffs of (exhaust fumes?) from under the bonnet and the fuel economy plummets for a short period of time and then recovers. This was happening before the message had appeared on the dash...

    Hi! My 1.9 jtdm 16V was having some difficulties starting when cold, a couple of days later I got an error message, something like "pre-heating glow plugs not available". I checked all of the glow plugs and they all drew the same amount of current, no open circuits, so that left the glow plug...

    Hi peeps . 159 1.9 JTDm. is there a special socket to remove the glow plugs as they are very long and not sure a normal deep socket is going to be long enough? Anybody done this? Don't want to have to remove the fuel rail if I don't have to.

    Hi got message on dash of 159 1.9 jtdm , heated plugs not available, Any ideas wether this is a glow plugs knackered message or is it more likely to be a fuse or canbus/electrical issue??? Anyone had this issue who can advise where to start . I know very little about diesels and less about the...

    Hey all, In my car this error appears for a few seconds then goes off. Does not affect the driveability or starting the car? Is it worth changing the glow plug ? Are they prone to snapping like other? Or do people just ignore this? Thanks Ming

    So I know this has been covered a lot previously. Mostly by me. Apparently the fuse for the glow plugs is the one on the top of the battery that has a cable coming off and going down the back of the battery. I found a 60A fuse there which would be close to the 65A needed of 5 13amp plugs. Now...

    Hi, Does the glow plugs always work before running the car or it depends on the weather's temperature? As an example, if the weather is 20 degree, does glow plug relay clicks before starting the car or not? There is no 12 volt on my glow plugs and although I replaced my glow plug relay it still...

    Hi, I have glow plug heating problem, and I will check the relay. But I do not have any diagram (shematic) of the relay. Does anybody has? I searched on internet but could not find any detailed document... Thanks.

    Hi there, My 110,000 mile 159 1.9 JTDM recently became very difficult to start - sometimes it would take three stuttering off/on attempts. Since the problem began I have put in a new good quality battery, all glow plugs replaced, new glow plug fuses on battery, new fuel filter, EGR cleaned...

    Can't see anything in the manual on replacement intervals, only petrol spark plugs, are these lifetime? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I was supposed to do a quick glow plug service on my 159 1.9 8v, but that plan soon came to an end when some of the threads on the second glow plug came out with the plug itself. (2nd plug counting from the cam belt). I replaced the plug with bad threads with a new one, but as I started to...

    Morning chaps and lasses, I've recently started getting a glow plug warning on my G when starting her up, does anybody know the type number of a bosh glow plug or any other brand. Also is it an easy job to do by myself?
