Chrysler recently released metallic glow plugs and a corresponding glow control unit (smart relay) to replace the ceramic glow plugs currently in the KJ CRD for 2005 and 2006. The part numbers are as follows:

Kit (4x GLP + 1x GCU): CY P/N 68090434AA

GLP: CY P/N 68090430AA

GCU: CY P/N 68090431AA

It is very important to update the engine PCM tune prior to connecting the new glow plugs. If not, the metallic plugs will be supplied with too much current and overheat. GDE has updated tunes available for any customer wishing to coordinate the hardware and software change together. The other option is to have the dealer flash the PCM with an updated stock tune. Then we can work out the details of having the GDE tune reinstalled using our flash tool loaner program.

The flash tool loaner program will have a $50 fee to cover shipping costs and tune coding.

I would rather give you the $50 bucks over hanging out at a dealer for 2 hours. Thanks for the good info on the glow plugs as well.

yeah I would rather give you the $50 than the dealer and keep my tune.

if I had a GP issue could one flash the new code just Before taking it to the shop and having the new plugs installed? I am thinking that would be ok but the current ones may not heat enough with the new code, not an issue so much if its warmer I'm sure.

You could always unplug the GPs until you get the re-flash or visa versa.

GDE, Do you recommend changing out the GP"s as a preventive thing? Or just wait till you have trouble with the originals? Thanks

Hi Keith, after some testing I think I can replace the 2 tuning files stored in my programmer but not reset the original file. Here the message I got from the PWGconsole
"Gi slot di memoria sono occupati selezionare il file che si vuole sovrascrivere e premere OK" You got the picture? I already use two files (F.T.Eco/Hot) so I need a ORI2+ F.T.ECO2 and HOT2 files with the metal glow plug update in a neer future,(I keep the ORI2 in file and install the 2 others) Can you send me thoses files by E-Mail? Do you need anything else before proceeding?

Cheers

OldSkull,

Send me an email and we can discuss. When you open PWGConsole you can change the language to English with one of the menu buttons. Since the tool only holds 3 tunes, I am not aware of how to delete the uploaded tunes without requiring flashing the CRD back to stock, then erasing the tool. I beleive we will need a new original file read. Thanks.

Looks like 5 volt metal plugs and aftermarket, not Bosch for sure.
