Hi
I have a 2009 207 1.6HDI 90 van. It's done about 130k miles.
It always used to start really quickly, but now takes about a second or more. I know that doesn't sound much, but is it indicating a fault somewhere?
On its recent service, the glow plug relay was changed. My OBD reader always shows a glow plug relay fault, even after attempting to clear it.
Also, the dash never shows the pigtail. To be honest, I don't even know if and where this indicator is.
I also read that the glowplugs only really help for a very cold engine, like sub-zero.
Has anyone got a picture of where the pigtail indicator should be? Ta.

Hi...could be the first signs of the battery starting to weaken..so its not cranking fast enough....or a starter showing its age.Will be worth checking both...ie votage while at rest and then when cranking will test the battery...let us know?
