German term or phrase: startbereitschaftglühen
Startbereitschaftglühen

Das Startbereitschaftglühen stellt nach dem Vorglühen bis zum Start des Motors eine genügend hohe Temperatur zur Verfügung. Dazu werden die Glühkerzen von der Glühzeitendstufe getaktet (geregelt).

Can somebody help me with 'Startbereitschaftglühen'?

Thanks !!

English translation:ignition readiness phase of the glow cycle
Explanation:
The word does not exist as a common term and has probably been invented by the manufacturer. "Glow cycle" is the general term and "pre-glow" is taken care of by relays or the like which provide a certain amount of current to heat up the glow plugs.
I would invent my own English term to describe this special process.
--
Glow plugs are used to pre-heat the indirect injection chamber on some diesel engines for ease of starting. VW has two different glow plug systems, called slow and fast. Each system consists of a high current relay (with integrated starting logic) and glow plugs. It is important not to mix the fast and slow components.
