    Default B2500 Diesel Twincab wont start 2007 model

    parked the vehicle and the next morning the engine swings over but the vehicle wont start. If you test the glow plug relay out of the vehicle all is OK and the relay works fine. If you use a multimeter the trigger wire gets 12 volts as you switch the car on and immediately it switches off again. If you look at the dashboard the glow plug light flashes on and immediately off. Any ideas welcome as insanity is setting in

    Its a timer relay, should stay on a little longer. Usually they bomb out an stay on permanently and cause the glow plugs to burn out. Are you getting 12v at the glow plugs?
    Bridge the relay out for 10 seconds and try start immediately.
