HELP! My TDI wont start after spending the winter undercover with out use. I tried starting it for 20 minutes then I pulled the glow plugs out, they were cold as ice?

Connect one up while it's out and turn the ignition on, you'll soon see if it works or not, if not it may be the relay but I don't know where it is on your car.:)

Also tyr this tip: unplug the coolant temperature sensor plug. It's on the driver's side coolant flange. This will make the ECU use a default maximum glow plug time. It'll throw an error code for the sensor but if the car starts fine you know the sensor or wiring is bad.
