well the strangest thing happened today i got to the yard this morning and the van was fine went to the cafe came back and the van wouldn't start :confused:
now in all honesty i have no idea in the slightest about diesels but the battery is fine the glow plug light was coming on then going off i checked the fuses but 1 thing i did notice was a noise coming from 1 of the relays near the ecu that wasnt there before so can a relay on a diesel completely stop it from starting and make this happen in the space of 10 minuets????
any help will be very much appreciated!!!!

Re: citreon dispatch 1.9hdi wont start help

yup i woulld think so.

might be one of the fuel pumps, common rail will have 2 - low and high pressure. or the injectors themselves.
hopefully hdi will have mor einfo for you as the peugot and citroens share the engines

hi mate i worked on citroens for a while they are common for the wiring harness's to rub threw.if you follow the main wiring harness from the ecu to the engine,it usually rubs threw right next to the high pressure pump.you will see on the outer shielding where it has been rubbing.anyone with a bit of mechanical knowlage will be able to sort it mate.

Re: citreon dispatch 1.9hdi wont start help

There has never been an HDi without a turbo and there has never been a 1.9 HDi so lets assume it's the XUD unit.

There is a single electrical connection to the fuel pump. This is used to inhibit fuel flow so that the engine stops when key is switched off. This is the only way to stop a mechanically injected diesel engine.

I'd start looking there first
