i've wired the black and blue wire directly to the solenoid leaving the white and orange cable free but now my glow plugs won't work.

Could anyone please advise before i tow my van to the scrap yard?:*

Good morning.


Having similar trouble with my dad's T4 1.9 TD not starting from cold and have posted on the general chat forum.

It will be a process of elimination really, glow plugs tested OK, will replace the ignition switch this week.

Could anyone please PM me the details to bypass the immobiliser please?

If we can bypass that, and it still doesn't solve the problem then we will try something else.


Thank You

If it was an Immo problem, it would start and run for 2-3 seconds.
Have you checked voltage on the glow plugs?
Not starting from cold on that engine is mostly glow plugs not "lighting up", or the timing is way out.
Have you tried using the "choke"....timing adjust lever? (If fitted...)
Ignition switch won't be the problem if it cranks over. (Or shouldn't be....they cause all sorts of problems!)

Thanks for the reply.

The glow plugs and feed have been checked at two different garages and at an auto electricians.

Due to the symptoms, faulty glow plugs or feed was our first thought.

On the other thread in general chat, someone mentioned that it could be cylinder and compression problems so we want to eliminate all other possible causes first. that's why we would like to try the bypass method.

When the engine does fire up with easy start, it won't run without the cold start lever pulled out for a few minutes then it runs fine.
The engine doesn't suddenly seem any less powerful than normal ( considering that it is a 1.9 TD :rolleyes:), just won't fire up.
