Re: 1.5 DCI bad start in cold weather

Glow plugs changed day before yesterday. Two cold starts at a temp of 5.8 and all is ok. Error code has gone.

Re: 1.5 DCI bad start in cold weather

Mine has developed the same problem over the year. The OBDII diagnostics came up with P0380 which is the generic glow plug fault. Could be glow plugs, could be glow plug relay, could be glow plug fuses. https://autoservicecosts.com/obd2-codes/p0380/ It's going in for a glow plug change this afternoo...

Confirm glow plug relay for me, please? J10 K9K

I need to check my glow plugs as I have poor cold starting and the P0380 faults has been logged. I can do this by putting a meter on the relay contacts once removed but I just need confirmation I'm going to pull the right bit off. So, I think the glow plug relay is #1 in the image below.... Yes/No? ...

Re: Towbar advice for 2012 1.5dci - for caravan

I got the fixed Swan Neck and can confirm that the reversing sensors work just as they used to without the towbar i.e no interference from the tow bar. One thing to check on - where the cable goes into the back of the 13 pin connector it may not be sealed very well which allows water to get it in. I...

Re: New tyres recommendations

I had the Avon ZX7s on my QQ and found them very poor on wear. Wear was very uneven - the outside edges wore very quickly - less than 20k miles. Got the wheel alignment etc checked but there wasn't any problem. My local garage told me they'd stopped supplying Avon because of similar problems. Had Go...

Re: J10 2013 360 Touchscreen faded

Touchscreen fading is reasonably common and happened on mine. I tried taking it apart and cleaning contacts but it made no difference. There are replacements (see link below) but to be honest I thought it better to replace the unit with an Android Head Unit https://www.mte.net/news/how-to-repair- .....
