Hi Jim and Hi Irvin37,
Thanks to the both of you for the replies.
Chronology of events
1. glow engine, 2. start engine, 3. glowing it while running, 4. engine immediately stops and warning lamp "water in fuel" comes on.
I also have a feeling it could be a fuse, or a "ghost" in the electrics caused by conflicting input into some sort of operating system, - but, this is all a relatively old 1996 installation
however, I discovered a "black box" in the wiring
leading from the VDO panel, to the engine. Im thinking it could be some sort of computer. In that case maybe it could be reset.
Searching the net for VDO / perkins
/ reset / water in fuel warning and similar search terms, gives no meaningful returns.
So now my thoughts are:
1) find relevant fuses
, - but Ive searched and cant find any
2) find the sensor which measures for water in fuel. Cant find it. Checked the separator, fuel seems fine.
3) try and re-set the electronics
. Have powered off batteries, no result. Maybe some other way
It seems unlikely that there really is water in fuel, - it could be that pressing the glow button whilst running, made some sort of electric
"knot" in the system...
So Im down to;
1) finding the sensor which senses water in fuel. Could that be inline or on the engine? There is a wire coming out of the diesel
pump, - could this be it? Or maybe solenoid for shutoff for fuel.
2) finding the fuses
. There are lots of "ships fuses" in the main electricity boards, but these specific fuses should be either a) at the VDO panel (cant see anything there except that mentioned "black box". Or b) they could be somewhere on/by the engine...
Im a bit lost
here... any help would be appreciated, -
