sick scenic

evening all, just got back after running family errands in trusty Range Rover..just checked glowplugs, some are 0.3 ohms other 2 re 0.9 ohms. Wondered if anyone thinks these are high?..battery voltage is 11.76v.

I checked glow plugs with battery charger and they all heated up but am not sure if they are getting voltage when cranked on car.

New battery is on charge so will put that on saturday morning. More diagnosis to follow...

By the way, -5 here last night, range rover fired first turn of the key...and that is 22 yrs
