Hi Im David, please alow me a few moments to look up some information for you. thanks

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok.Thanks.
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

ok. you need to check the voltage at the glow plugs. make sure your battery is fully charged to 12.5 volts. access the glow plugs. pull the connector off each plug and check for 12.5 vdc at each plug. if all good, then remove each plug and check the resistance of each glow plug eack plug needs to read about 1.0 ohms or less.

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

let me think about this a minute

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

the problem with immo is there are alot of things that affect it but only thing that keep it from leeting the vehicle start. im digging into to my manuals and history to find the most likely areas for you.

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

try reprogramming the fob

Reprogramming an X-Type Key Fob.

Step 1

Open the driver side door.

Step 2

Turn the ignition switch to the ‘auxiliary’ position, then turn the ignition switch to the ‘ON’ position and back to the ‘auxiliary’ position four times. *This must be done fairly quickly. If you have done it correctly, you will hear a chime come from the GEM*

Step 3

Turn the ignition switch to ‘OFF’ position.

Step 4

Remove the key from the ignition.

Step 5

To program the transmitter, press any key within ten seconds. **If it worked, you should hear another chime come from the GEM**

Step 6

Close the door.

Not helping. Its for key remote progamming. I try.
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

I know its for remote programming. but sometimes it does the trick. im going to opt out and let another tech chime in. good day.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

Hello.

So right now the engine is cranking strong but not starting? What does the red security light on the console do when you turn the ignition ON without starting the vehicle?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Its on.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

On all the time, on for about 5 seconds then goes off, or on and blinking rapidly? Please confirm this as it is important in diagnosing the issue.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
About 5sec.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

Ok this means the security system sees a correct key code and allowing starting. We may have a fueling problem. Could be the in tank lift pump not supplying fuel to the injector pump. Since the fuel system is very high pressure we would need the compatible scan tool to monitor the fuel rail pressure to confirm the fuel system is operating. Let me know.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have a tester. What a normal fuelpressure in rail?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
This version have a liftpump?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

It actually uses a transfer pump integral in the high pressure pump for the low pressure.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The transferpump is in the tank?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

No it is on the engine on the injector pump. We need the scan tool to monitor the fuel rail pressure value when cranking

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok. And how much its can be?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

The fuel pump would be a costly repair which is why the diagnosis needs to be done.
