    Spot on Giles.

    When you get chance I'd let it cool down then check for voltage at the glow plug terminals. If its anything like our old Hymer the wiring for that circuit comes up from below the radiator and has been known to corrode. BTW what is that choke control all about?

    Cheers

The visual sign on mine is that the blue main beam light comes on with all the other lights when the ignition's switched on. Took Martin and I a while to work it out... we thought the battery was constantly draining somehow

    Ref the "choke on a diesel" part of the discussion, My old VW T4 1.9TD had what was often referred to as a "choke" on the right hand side below the light switch. And when you pulled it out, it made the engine easier to start when it was cold - so I can see why owners of those T4s referred to it as a Choke.
    It was technically a 'Cold Start' Pull. How it worked/what it did I never bothered to find out as it just did what it was supposed to (so if it works, don't fix it! principle). I would imagine other diesels of similar design and vintage would have similar features?

    The choke thing could be a strangler to actually cut engine off when running as some old diesels wouldend cut off when key was turned to off position maybe retro fitted. I know all the first diesels had them
