TD won't start this morning.

Battery is ok, seemingly power to the glowplugs, but no starter or solenoid action at all. Quick look at the wiring - looks fine, usual suspect connections ok - but noticed the battery light does not come on when key is turned.

Can anyone advise what that signifies and where I need to look?

Cheers alot

Re: TD won't start this morning.

Always seems like, in the days before each time this happens, the instrument panel lights get very dim. Now I have wiggled every starter and alternator connection (non were loose) the car starts and the panel is bright. Weird.

I also suspect the ignition switch. I doubt it - but could this cause both problems?
