2.5TDi glow plug problem
I know I've asked this before but I am desperate for some guidance!
A6 quattro estate with 2.5Tdi (5 cyl) engine I think code AEL.
Glow plug light comes on & goes out after a few seconds, takes longer when really cold so seems to be working. But no power gets to glow plugs. If I connect glow plug directly to battery it glows, If I turn on ignition it receives no power (proven by unscrewing glow plug & earthing against engine block).
where do I look - relay, fuse etc.
Re: 2.5TDi glow plug problem
It sounds like you have a glow plug controller unit failure.
I don't know where it is situated on your car but following the heavy cable from the glowplug back should give you a clue.
Hopefully it'll just be a fuse that has gone!
