additional staring problem

thanks for the response,

the car will now not start at all, i do not get the glow light on the dash at all, and will not start, it turn over that is all.

I have found that if I connect a jump lead cable from the battery to one of the glow plugs, the car will start perfrectly straight away.

So would this mean that the relay was causing a problem?

Also would this suggest as the car still starts and runs fine when using the cable method, the relay has infact broken now and was causing the problem with the car?

I have also been quoted around 80 for the part, and dont want to spend this kind of money without checking firstly.

Any thought/input on this would be greatly appreciated.
