need some advice please
hello all..i have a 2001 1868cc Multispace Forte... every cold morning it will not start, and the glow plug light will not work... it starts ok now but the glow plug light won't come on. Then for the first 5 mins the indicators, heater/fan switch and wipers will not work. Then all of a sudden they come on. I will be taking it to a garage but before I do I'd like some advice as I feel a little vulnerable and don't want to be ripped off!! Thanks for any advice. Cheers. Sarah.
Glow plug relay mite be at fault maybe try a bsi reset for other fauts

Hi SarahJane,
I have the same electrical 'delay' problem on my 2001 petrol 1.8 Forte. I tried the BSI Reset to no avail. Did you get yours sorted at the garage & was it expensive?
Almost certainly a BSI or multiway connector problem. Assuming the BSI is undamaged then a Lexia reset should get it working.
Many private garages now have Lexia or the Pug equivalent and all you can do is to give it to them.
