Re: Laguna wont start. Thermo Plunger*Fixed*

This fault is nothing to do with the thermo plunger...The fault is with the Battery fuse.

The Thermoplunger is the device that is fitted in coolant pipe that feeds the heater matrix.
It is an Aluminium housing that holds glow plugs, its roll is to heat the water going to the heater matrix so you can get heat into the cabin are more quickly.

I think the title of the post should be edited to reflect the above.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
