Hi, Suggest you disconnect glow plugs and check the resistance of each one to earth with a multi meter on the resistance range . I don't know what the resistance is , but I would think it's only a matter of ohms . Perhaps someone else can tell you actual value to expect.

Hi, Can you disconnect the wiring and check the resistance of the other two? I used to have a problem starting on one of my Fiats but it usually started after 3 tries on cold mornings . Perhaps the timer's cutting off too soon. Sorry can't help further.

I never really thought it was a problem, so I just put up with it. As the days got warmer the starting got easier. it was one of those things ; in the summer there was no problem, in the winter it was too cold to bother looking at it.
