    Starter Boxes

    If you want me to try out the white Nartron, I will gladly. I am tracking down in issue in mine with the same box, and both I and Kascar think my box is bad...

    Nah, I just turn them on and wait to start, then start. I had previously, on my old plugs when I suspected they were shot, tried many methods including on-off-on-start. NOT on the current ones.

    It may work to buy a TSU next time I buy another set of glow plugs. Yet $80 a pop, I really do not want to buy another set of glow plugs if the TSU is not the issue. On the same note, I would not like to spend the big bucks on a new S3 box if a TSU will do. So again, I do not have a blinky light...

    Interesting. I did not have any wait light blinking issues. Just blown glow plugs shortly after replacement. After I unplugged the TSU, the wait to start light did blink fast. I am unsure about how to test the TSU and if I should "assume" which part is actually bad and causing the glow plugs to...

    What you guys think of this M998?

    Although the original post did not follow *posted rules* I will add in my two cents. Do not buy one because it "looks" together with a top and doors. They will be crap! Mine "looked" together and yet I will be replacing all the doors and top. I would def buy one that "needs" more for less...

    So here is my smart start and my TSU. Any pointers on finding out if they are "paired". No yellow strip that I see. It does look newer than the box and has thread tape on it. The numbers do appear to "match". Is that what it takes? Is there a way to test the TSU? Updated picture link.

    So I do have the Nartron Smart Start System with white label and all my glow plugs have been detonated. My educated guess, and as RWH stated, my box may be bad. What would be the best way to test the box? Should the glow plug lead read 24 volts at the run position? I was trying to get a reading...

    I feel like a newb. Yes, I mean Glow plugs. I did not pay attention to what I typed. I looked at the sensor on the rear of the motor just for second when I was pulling the plugs back out and it had all the dirt and grime on it. I did not see any yellow band, but if it is there, I would have to...

    So I installed the glow plugs I ordered from Kascar. I put them in, they worked a couple times, and then all of a sudden it was hard to start again. I checked them, and even had to use the tool to pull a couple of them. I found all of them swollen. Prior to install, I did not have any issues...

    Funny story....my 3 year old loves the Humvee. He wanted to go for a ride in the "Humbee" and so we did. He giggles and laughs the whole time! Anyways, I went to start it and a noise startled me when I turned the key to the on position- windshield wipers moving on dry windshield! Awesome news as...

    Manual Override of Glow Plug Controller

    Hey Artmac, I figuring you mean you would like to hard wire the glow plugs to a toggle switch to bypass the need for a smart start box? If so, I am also interested in that possibility in the future. It makes sense to my simple thought process that an individual could wire all the glow plugs to a...

    I also noticed that my engine temp goes up to about 210 and then the fan kicks on an drops to 200 or just below and then heats up and then fan kicks on. I read as long it is below 240 we are good...right? When I do a coolant flush at some point, I will prolly change the thermostat with the rest...
