    They are 4 Heater Glow Plugs (similar to spark plugs) which are fitted on top of the engine,you will see them when engine cover is removed.

    A fault code read would be a good idea, the 2006 has glow plug monitoring which removes guess work.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks for your reply. i have tested all 4 glow plugs with multimeter and they all are giving zero resistance. then i took them out and tested battery as well and they all start glowing withing seconds. So glow plugs are fine i guess. if you have any other suggestions please send me message. so i can check for the problem.thanks again

    A fault code read, this would have eliminated the glow plugs themselves (but NOT the control system) as they are monitored on this engine.
