CRD #6 Glow Plug Circuit Error

I have an 07 Grand Cherokee CRD and the DTC code tells me that the #6 glow plug circuit is defective. Where is the location of this plug/cylinder on the engine? How can you tell if the glow plug or the glow plug controller is shot?

Most probably it is not a circuit but glow plug by itself. Eider it draw to much current or no current at all. If I am correct cylinder #6 is the last one on the right cylinder bank looking from the grill(driver side near the fire wall).

you should also search this forum for "glow" or "glow plug" you will find a number of threads to read.

Since my Jeep is past the 60000 km bumper to bumper warranty I try to diagnose it myself. FYI if anyone wants a good source for glow plugs I suugest Europarts of San Diego where they run for $38.91. Thanks for the suggestions. Does anyone have a diagram that shows all the cylinder numbers on the engine in case I have another glow plug fail?

I think its worthwhile doing some research into the topic of glow plug failure and see what we can find...

I came across a couple posts on different sites where owners replaced their batteries and the glow plug failure message went away. You may want to have your battery load tested prior to replacing a glow plug.

I also read about a glow plug reamer to clean the port where the glow plug goes
http://www.mercedessource.com/node/2842

And there was an article about a guy that cleaned his glow plugs regularly with ATF (automatic transmission fluid) because he ran bio diesel and glow plugs carboned up.

Thanks for this diagram. Know any good sources for a service manual on this diesel engine?

I didn't want to say anything, but the numbering is backwards from a North American V8 as well.

Hi
Well 6 is in the same place. I have back up CD's at work that look like about when opened up so I will see if they say the same.

So to recap... the #6 glow plug by what I understand is on the North Americans driver side nearest the firewall? I have checked the threads here on this site and can't seem to find one on testing these glow plugs for the do-it-yourselfer. Would a continuity test on all of them work and the one that has zero or a different resistance than the rest be the defective one? Can they be tested while still in the engine? Thanks for any advice...

Yes the resistance would be different and yes you can test in place centre poll of the glow to the head.
