Re: Restart is hard after the winter

I got a new battery.
I managed to start the engine by using a thick jumperwire from the pos battery pole to the glowplugs. WD 40 helped also :-)
The startmotor seems to be normal.

BUT: if i try use the glowplugs the normal way, the relais switches off after 20 seconds...
Its a relais from Ford cars rated for 70 amps.

I will order a new relais online.
