Renault Kangoo - Cut Out And Non-Start*FIXED*
First post here!
I have a problem with my Kangoo, it won't start
The other day I pulled up to a junction and when pulling away I either stalled it or the engine stopped, doesn't really matter which because when I went to turn the engine over nothing happened - starter didn't even turn! The glow plug light wouldn't even come on!
After the short tow home (and trying in vain to tow start) I had a look under the bonnet. What's happening is that I'm getting a clicking noise from the engine relay compartment when the ignition is on, I have checked all the relays with an ohm meter (I'm an electrician) and the contacts operate fine. Eventually I read somewhere that the glow plug control relay could be at fault so I disconnected the thicker plug and now I get the proper dash lights (glow plug on and off as expected), but the starter solenoid clicks but the motor does not spin - I replaced the starter anyhow as it's had a bit of hammer recently with poor starting issues due to bust glow plugs however since I replaced them about three weeks ago it's been fine up to now - the starter motor still does not turn
Anyway what I need to know is, is it worth changing the glow plug relay or could it be something else?
