  5. Glow plug types? Easy way to tell?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    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...
