Re: Odd starting problem with 52" Clio diesel

Dont know how you checked relay ,,but could you check it this way to see if its working ok ,,not really a good way of testing on another car,,,as that car could have had a software update,,,pull one of the glow plug connectors off,,place your voltmeter red lead probe inside place the black lead on a good Engine earth ,,,,Not the battery,,,check for voltage here, this should be about the same as the battery voltage when you switch the ignition on,then see how long before the light goes out,, it should be about 8 seconds for this time if year ,,,,do it on all four connectors,,,not just one,,SEEMS like your after glow is getting your car going ,,,ie the heater plug relay is working when you start the process the second time and this lasts for 60 seconds,,
