Re: Volvo MD2010 Indicator lights and alarm problem
First off, welcome to Sailnet! Apologies for missing your original post - that happens sometimes..
You are correct that these engines need glow to get going on cold days. From the symptoms you describe, it sounds like a faulty control panel to me.
What condition is the panel in? Reasonably good or old/corroded??
