i have a problem starting my 1.9d when cold. i only have it come around this time of year when the temp starts to drop i also get it at the end of the day when coming home from work. the van turns ove but just doesn't fire. i have spoken briefly to vw and they say its prob the glow plugs my light only comes on breifly not long at all. they told me to check they are getting the correct voltage but couldnt tell me what this is? they also told me to check the fuse where do i find this fuse? i cant see it in the fuse box?? can anyone please help has anyone else had this problem and how did they solve it? i have found that by sitting there cranking it over and over it will eventualy start but fell this is not good for the engine.
cheers jimmyT:
