    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    So quick question in regards to this same issue. Haven't driven the truck much other than in and out of the garage as I've been working on it (lift kit install, plow install, etc). I was also waiting on the paperwork so I can title it. Anyway, noticed the wait light was coming on...

    How to post pictures - a tutorial

    Well, let me hop on the home laptop and see if that makes a difference..... Nope, not there either. Both are running Windows. I have uploaded without issue before, but haven't since around October 4th. Has something changed since then? I haven't done anything to either of my laptops (home...

    ok.....let me try again. Nope, can pull one that is already in my album, but can't load a new one from my laptop. Still looks like it's loading, then onces it appears its done, I get the red exclamation after the file name. With the URL I get a file error popup.

    How to post pictures - a tutorial

    Is anyone having problems posting picts? I'm doing the attachments like I have in the past, but everytime I upload the pictures, I'm getting an exclamation point after it and it's not letting me attach. My picts from before are still sitting there to view, but no new ones are coming in. I...

    Definitely agree. I've never afraid to say, "I am stumped, please help!". Which I think I did on here with this, and you all chipped in and schooled me properly. Can't say thanks enough.

    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    Like I said earlier, I've always had a soft spot for the Blazers, love the 73 to 87 vintage Chevs, and have had many over the years that were either babied and beat. This just is another to add to the collection. I'll admit though, this is my first ever truck without spark plugs, so I was...

    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    Oh **** Ya! She's alive! After Warthog tossed up that last schematic, I started digging under the dash and found two blown fuses. Threw a couple new ones in, hooked the battery cables back up, and everything lit up on the dash. Figured what the heck, once the "wait" light went out, turned...

    The card is there. Now that I have the wiring schematic for this, I'll do some checking to see if that fuse to the light is burnt out or the bulb. Also I can bypass as you said to at least test to see if the module is bad.

    Ok, so no card, no gp, no start. Guess verification that the GP card is there or not is my first step. Thanks.

    Well, that would probably be safe to assume! Like you said, she was robbed of all the other things GP related. I'll look tonight. Right now I just want to see if she'll fire, and with the temps at where they are now, I'd assume she'd start even without the glow plug preheat cycle as long as...

    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    So is the wait light supposed to come on every time you turn the key to try starting? I have yet to see it come on. I do notice a warm smell if I turn the key on, but it's very faint. Didn't know if that was from the glow plugs or?? Nothing I've found is hot to the touch, though. Maybe I'll...

    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    So good news....got the last of the electrical hooked up tonight. Threw juice at it and things appeared to act like they should. Dash lit up as you see in pict below. Only thing that didn't light up was the "Wait" light, but am wondering that the mid 70's here right now kept it off. Is that...

    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    What is the recommended size? I see one thread mentioned 30.... They clipped both wires to the starter to ease removal, so I dindn't have as much to work with. There is enought to go to the end connection on the bus bar, though. The guy that did the testing on the starter just bench tested...

    Glow Plug Relay Only Thing Missing?

    Thanks. So one more question in general on the 24 volt system. THe cab is 12 volt then from the fusible link, but are the headlights and running lights coming off 24? The reason I ask is because this will be my hunting and plow truck once it's on the road and I have to transfer that over to...

    Thanks, I was going to continue the GPR one, but since others were giving me other things to check in regards to the mechanical side, I went with a more general one. But thanks for merging, as I'm still getting the info I need.
