Unhappy jato+rain=something wrong!!!

well i started up my jato fine right after i got home from skool and it was raining not hard but medium. so i was like nothing will happen to it soo i ran it for about 5 min or so and i took it inside. and then i came back like around 6 and tried to start it up and when i put the ez starter wand thingy in where it starts it up it lights up 2 lights and it usually only light up one that says "motor". and when i tryed it it lite up the light that is next to it that says "glow plug" and it didn't even do anything. do u think that the rain did something to the ez start??? o and after i ran it in the rain i got a blow dryer and dried alot of the water that was on it.

you burnt out your glow plug, probably not related to the rain, but get a new one.

could most likely use any standard glow plug. make sure the electric motor is turning. and make sure the plug is connected with the glow plug right. 6 buxs is plenty for a glow plug. you can get one for like 2. so no worries. make sure everything is connected. and if it dont turn over, then you need to get a plug and possibly change the electric start motor.
