Eduardo, that doesn't count. My response was to Adrian who said that
some cars are fitted with an inhibitor. Excessive side thrust that
prevents and engine starting may be an effective inhibitor but Citroen
didn't design it in as a feature :-)
Nice try though :-)
You could still have some faulty glow plugs. There are two types of plug
made for these engines, the type for the turbo are made to stay on longer
each start, so will last longer overall. Do not get the plugs for the non
It is also possible that you have a faulty glow plug relay, in that the
light still comes on, but no power is actually being supplied to the plugs.
The only way to test for this is with a voltmeter attached to one of the
plugs while you turn on the ignition.
You can also check the individual plugs by measuring the resistance of each,
but you have to disconnect each one in turn from the supply cable. Faulty
pugs will normally be open circuit. Normal resistance cold is under one ohm.
