INSPECTION
4FB1 I-Mark

4FB1 I-Mark Component Location: the controller unit is located beneath the glove compartment. The glow plug relay unit is located in the relay box at the right side of the engine compartment. The dropping resistor is located near the fuel inlet pipe of the engine. The glow plugs and sensing resistor is located on the right side of the engine installed in the cylinder head. The fusible link is located near the battery and relay box at the left side of the engine compartment. The thermo switch is located in the thermostat housing of the engine.

Dropping resistor check: check for continuity across the terminals. If no continuity exists, replace the unit.

Thermo switch check: submerge the end of the switch in water and raise the temperature gradually. The switch should be OFF between 126 and 19140and#x00B0;F (53 and 1960and#x00B0;C) or lower. The switch should be ON between 134 and 19145and#x00B0;F (57 and 1963and#x00B0;C) or higher. If not, replace the switch.
