That's possible, but when I did the test it was not that cold, around 13F.
The meter dropped when the light went out so I think the PCM cuts the power down after initial heat up.
I think that DC programmed the light short so people would not complain about the "long time" it takes to preheat the cylinders. With the wait after the light goes out it starts the way it should.
My pickup heats for a lot longer time than the Jeep and it starts just fine.

Thank you. I'll do some research on the hose and what's on the end of it. Maybe our friendly local Jeep CRD specialist will look it up for me.

A long time ago MB used a real glowing wire as an indicator on the dashboard. If you couldn't see nor feel the warmth of the glow you had no glow in the precombustion chambers. I guess this is where the symbol we use today came from.
You had to use both hands to feel the heat on one side and and start the engine on the opposite side of the steering. The driver would decide when to start, keeping the glowplugs lit according to his experience. It was simple and efficient.

Unfortunately, simple has gone the way of the dodo.
With computer power we have now, everything goes through it even simple things like the dome lights.
Also, unfortunately, the programming and updates are so secretive the owner can't make changes in the way the vehicles operate to tweak it to our desires.
It is possible, they just won't let us have it.

Mdamick, I rewired a few vehicles in the past. There's not much to it. The hardest for me was to get the battery light dim with charge
If you can get hold of an early CRD controller (like mine) you will be closer to heaven.
In the worst case, you don't need dome lights

I have rewired every vehicle I have ever owned including the CRD.
I would just like to be able to tweak the computer for transmission shift points, lockup rpm and other little things. This would be much easier than running cables here & there to do things the computer will already do.

Caribou1... I thought that you were older I would say 67.
You have a lot of work to do there, but let me tell you I do like city life, to me Winn Dixie, Public, home town coffee shop,Popeye Chicken and ABC liquor store have to be close by. My father use to said " The country is for the birds". no offence, my mother use to love the country side. Your house look big and very well build. Give us some pic after you finish.
