When I try to start my 1983 300 TDT, the glow plug timer light does
not illuminate. When I unplug the glow plug wires from the timer, it
lights. I've tried to check the glow plugs, and all of them seem to
register 0 ohms. I think they should be about 200 ohms, but don't
understand how the would short. Any suggestions?
The strip fuse is good. Checked and they do have some resistance--my
meter is not that precise. I cleaned all the electrical connections
in the timer including the posts for the strip fuse (I had recently
replaced it) and it worked for at least 2 starts. Thanks, and here's

I have found thru personal experience that analog meter (with needle
indicator) works best for a lot of automotive trouble shooting.
Digital response is too slow. Also, if there is a slight temporary
connect or disconnect, the needle reacts very quickly and you can
observe the reaction. Sears and radio shack have good analog meters
for under $20 US. Had a radio shack meter last 15 years b4 it died.
