Q: 1984 MB 300D - Pre-ignition rely/coil some time fails to activate on 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The pre-ignition rely/coil that sends the spark to the glow plugs fail to activate some times but it is totally random. Is there some way to activate it manually and/or reset it so it will work normally? Seem that if you can get the car started [in warm weather] then the rely starts working again by itself. But car won't start in cold weather without it!!! Help Please email address davidjsloan2@yahoo.com

Maybe loose fuse for that circuit. Open fuse box and clean and wiggle fuse and it's connectors. also check for loose wires and or connectors in that circuit.
