Re: Doesent start, glow plugs are good.
I hope your glow plugs aren't staying ON! That is one thing I can think of that would draw more current than your alternator supplies.
Check the two large terminals on the relay. One is the feed from the batteries, the other is the wire TO the glow plugs. One will always be hot, the other should only have voltage for a short time.
In the vans, you can put a manual pushbutton right in the doghouse. Run a wire from the white wire terminal, through your pushbutton, and to good ground. It's best to use a pair of quick connects so that you can remove the doghouse from the van without having to unbolt the wires.
If your GP relay is staying ON all the time, disconnect the white wire from the relay, this will disconnect the controller from the relay.
