WOW! For a New Guy you sure got Attitude

There IS no "controller" (other than the PCM). Is this a California truck you're talking about?

Not sure. I bought the truck in Washington state. I does have the Ambulance package, 2 Alternators and PTO plate on the trans. I have changed all 8 glow plugs(what a *****) and the Relay. Both Delphi products. I am having an intermittent starting problem. It has been to 33deg here once since I changed them and it started no problem. At 40deg sometimes it just cranks, after 3 or 4 turns of the key(with out engaging the starter) the volt meter will finally show a draw. Then it will start normally. So it may be California truck. Not sure.

maybe a bad wire contact. i think there is a sensor for the temperature and that tells how long the glow plugs need to to heat. not 100% sure though.

This is what I am looking for in my truck. Any one. *NoRalPh* I apologize for the attitude it was not my intent. Just frustration to the same answer I get. This is the Controller all have one in one form or another to control the relay.

Someone's given you some Bad info.... This controller, used on CA trucks, do NOT "have one in one form or another to control the relay" on ALL trucks. If you don't see that item, on top of the pass valvecover next to the relay, you Don't have one Anywhere else either (like the Vast majority of us).

If you have a Cold Start problem (and this is the time of year when we see Lots of complaints about it) go through this thread and figure-out what's wrong with the system.
