I just searched thier site and see no listing for that model. U should use one that is meant for a Diesel. Even though you live in a warm area you still need to wait a few seconds for the glow plugs to kick in. You just creating extra wear and tear on things

Call the company, there may be extras you can add to the starter. Usually the starters are universal, and have different features depending on the model.
