location of the glow plug controller on the strada?

Postby strada-caster » Fri May 27, 2011 9:45 am

where is it?? I follow the temp sensor wires into the cab, but then can't find the proper box.

my truck will start no problem, idle for a few seconds perfectly, then it will be very lump producing greyish smoke.
I dont think/know if the strada cycles the plugs after start or not (my opinion, they don't)

just replaced injectors
have not done a compression test (truck runs fine at norm operating temp)
glow plugs are new and still test correct

The two relay are just on the side of

the battery,fixed in the inner of the left fender,near the left sealed beam.
And yes it cycle the plug after start.

You should maybe check the temperature sensor of the system.

The glow plug controller is on the passenger side(left side of the cab) just beside the glovebox,bolted
on the pillar where the door hinges are fixed,just over a plastic trim.
It's a small square metal box with a connector on it,6 or 8 wire,don't remember.
