Preheat light comes on after engine start. 1988 OM602td

Hello!

Glowlight works normally before start, and engine fires. A few seconds after engine start, glowlight comes on again and stays on for approx 20-30seconds. After that everything is normal. The glowsystem operated normally until yesterday.

All suggestions are appreciated.

Lars, Norway. MB190 2,5td

Thats generally an indicator of a problem in the glow system. Probably a bad or weak GP.

Thanks. I will check the resistance in each plug individually, to search for the badguy!
