    hello mga tsikoteers!

    hope someone will help me sa problem ko.

    my ride is Mitsu L200 pickup. before starting the engine, you should wait for the heater light to turn green from red. at the same time nakailaw rin yung batt at thermostat yata un. now pag nagstart nako ng engine, after mag green un heater light, all lights/indicators with turn off. this is the normal setup/scenario.

    ngayon, pag nagstart nako ng engine, mamamatay uli mga indicators but after some time iilaw ilaw uli yun heater with red light or minsan green while the engine is running with matching "clicking sound" pa. nakakapagtaka kasi di naman ganito dati. nakakainterfere din un paglight nito sa radio. it sounds something like a feedback, rinig sa speakers every time umiilaw un indicator.

    reving up the engine will turn off the indicator sometimes, pero di lagi.wala naman ako binabago sa electrical settings before ito nangyari, as in biglaan lang nagkaganito. battery seems ok kasi 1-click naman magstart ng engine.

    another thing, baka related dito, pag sa gabi mahina ang busina ko pag turned on ang headlights. chaka pala, pag bumubusina ako nawawala sound sa radio.

    really need your inputs guys. salamat po.

    parang something is grounded or shorted in your car's electrical system.

    It may mean one of your glow plugs is busted or grounded. Happens a lot to me on the MB100. But since the thing still starts within a reasonable amount of time, I just ignore it.

    On a 4d56, it could also mean a faulty glowplug relay (the big black box attached to one of the battery posts).
