Re: Trafic 1.9 dci Glow plug problems.

Is your primer getting hard. Easystart should keep it running, will it the easystart do that..

Going to apply for a job cleaning mirrors.
It's something I could really see myself doing.

Re: Trafic 1.9 dci Glow plug problems.

I'm thinking that there is an immobiliser issue here.
Or at least between UCH and ECU .
Possibly damp, dirty or corroded connections or a chafed wire.

That the light is going solid red means (AFAIK) that the key has been accepted (plus tried spare key)
The solid red ought to cancel once the two computers have established communications.

Re: Trafic 1.9 dci Glow plug problems.

Thanks for that.

It has been lashing rain here all day so I did not get a chance to start the search for the chafed wire or the otherwise bad connection. It would be great if that (if and when discovered) would solve the problem. I have been reading horror stories of replacement ichs or uchs or ecu 's . Hope I dont need to go down that route.
Tomorrow, I will start with the loom to and from from the ecu and the various wires and connections in and around it and the fusebox.
After that, I may locate the uch (under the steering wheel cowl ???) and see if any connections are corroded on or around that unit. Then I suppose, I may check the continuity of the wiring from the uch to the ecu .

As I am checking all of the above, I presume that I am hoping for the immobiliser light to start flashing and/or the glow plug light to come on. Would that be the best place to start the search ?

Under the bonnet, locate the ecu ,,, check the wiring as it goes from the Ecu and down over the inner wing, that section is prone, .....

UCH is behind the Speedo cowl in the dash on mine.
