 Glow plug click on 4110

My 455 has an idiot light that extinguishes when the plugs are through "pre-heating" the cylinders. The 455 also starts without even turning-over once... all the time, every time... rain, sleet, or snow(1/2" in GA).

Now the 4110 is supposed to indicate that the glow plugs are finished doing there thing, with a "click" after approx. 3 seconds. However, it's got to be the quietest click I've ever heard or a non-existent click. When starting the 4110, it turns over 3 or 4 times, even on a warm day. However, when it's warm from being operated... it starts pretty quickly.

I'm just curious? Does your 4100,4010,4110, or 4115 series tractor operate like my 4110? Can you hear any click indicating that the glow plugs are ready? Does it take 3 or 4 cranks for it to start?

I have an unrelated diesel in my Mitsubishi fuso and it does the same thing. Light goes out after 4-5 seconds no click and no start. I let the light goe out and wait for the click 10-15 seconds and it starts every time.

My 86 VW is exactly the same. Light burns for up to 15 sec (-20) then the relay clicks off another 10 sec later. These are the o-l-d style "slow" VW glow plugs.

VW manual states that you should begin cranking when the light goes off, meaning that the glow plugs remain energized while cranking. Sure makes for a slow cranking RPM when cold.

The glow plug light in my Kubota isn't supposed to click or go off, but I have found that on warm days, a count to 8 is about right for a quick start, and up to 12-15 count in the winter. 3 seconds sounds too quick for any glow plug to warm the cylinder enough for combustion.

Try a TDI VW. On my '01 Jetta TDI the glow light is on for maybe 5 sec on the coldest days. Always starts.

The VW tdi's trick you. I just traded my 99.5 for a 2005 Jetta wagon. The dealer told me those ingenious Germans linked the glow plugs to the door. When you open the door, the glow plugs start and by the time you turn the key they are about ready.

I have a 4200. I bought it new 4 years ago and insisted on a direct injection diesel. I have NEVER had to use the glow plugs to start this tractor-even when it was 0 out.
It is kept in an unheated shed and I love it!

Denwood: TDI = Turbo Direct Injected. Very Little heat is needed in a direct injected motor compared to indirect injected. Their tech is very high on that motor, also leading to shorter GP time.

I think your dealer was pulling your leg. Every time you open the door? That would make for alot of dead batteries.

Sorry, I mispoke, I am well well aware of why direct injection is better, the same reason my chevy 6.5 was crappy in winter. I just spoke to my dealer service dept. and they corrected me, and the salesman who told me. The car preheats the glow plugs when the door is unlocked, not opened and then completes the process when you turn the key. If the car is not started is stops the cycle. You just can't trust car salesmen!
