  1. Checked on a spares website and that indicates the 2004 3 ltr model has four glow plugs try checking one of these sites and using your reg number it would at least tell you if you have one per pot or one in the Manifold ( I would have thought this was an outdated preheat method.

  2. Replace the holder and give the wiring a good coat of looking at. There is too much load going through the fuses so I susspect a wire earthing some where. If nothing visable take some time troubleshooting, run at idle, have blades running, then collector etc and feel when the holder heats up. I had a clicking soi on the starter late last year and suspected the battery, the ignition lights still came on after being left for 5 plus months this spring so charged the battery and checked some wiring. Found a loose earth bonding strap to the engine, cleaned up the connectors to the battery and the spade connector on the thin wire to the sol. Not had an issue since then. If you have a leak to earth it may just be your battery is not getting the charge it needs. Cheers Nopedigree
