 Cub 7265 Glow Plug Lamp On During Operation

Hi all, I need some guidance here. Over the winter my glow plug lamp would come on from time to time while operating the tractor. Now I still have the same problem but one time the tractor will start right up and the next time it is very hard to start. The the glow plugs seem to light one time and not the next.

If I turn the key to glow the plugs the glow plug light will light for about 2 seconds and I will hear a click and it goes out.

I went over the glow plug relay and controller connections and sprayd them with contact cleaner. Nothing seems to be corroded or dirty.

Does this sound like the glow plug relay or controller could be at fault? Is there a test I or the dealer can do on these two components if I remove them from the tractor?

I would be thankful for any help here I am not the greatest when it comes to issues like this! I also don't want to start guessing and paying for parts I don't need. Thanks for the help!

 Cub 7265 Glow Plug Lamp On During Operation

I also have a 7265. When I turn the key on my glo plug light comes on for 2 seconds then goes out. Even on the coldest days. Never saw the glo plug light come on while operating. Had a starting issue that turned out to be Starter not spinning fast enough. rebuilt starter and engine starts right up ever since.

 Cub 7265 Glow Plug Lamp On During Operation

I have an update now. I did more checking and when the tractor is running if I wiggle the connector going into the controller the glow plug light will come on and go off randomly. Also, if I turn the key to right to glow the plugs and wiggle the connecton I hear a click coming from the controller randomly. It seems that I may have a bad connection in the connector that snaps into the controller. Nothing looks bad in the individual connections. I did manage to get a few of the individual plugs to come out but I can't get them all out to squeeze tighter. I also wiggled the wires before connector and they seem fine.

I don't know for sure how to check the glow plugs. I did pull them out and set digital volt meter to ohms. I then place one end of volt meter on top of glow plug and other and other end on the electrode and I got no reading when set to ohms. Is this the correct way to check my glow plugs? It appears to be no resistance so I think they are burnt out? Can someone please give me some advice?

I asked the dealer where I purchased this tractor for help with this problem. This is where I buy all my filters, oil and parts and they were short and rude to me for asking for advice on trouble shooting my glow plug system?? I feel offended by their actions. I was good to the dealer and gave them plenty of business. I am willing to purchase the parts from the dealer if I can figure out what to buy. Seem if they can't collect a labor fee they don't want anything to do with me.

I sure hope to get some help here, thanks everyone!
