Try hold the key between the on and start stage of the ignition you can. Youmanually glow your truck there, You will see the volt gauge dip or hear the solenoid kick in. Hold it for 5 to 10 secs and fire your truck up.

Wait so the glow plugs arn't turning off at all until you turn the key off? Well i'd say your glow plug timer has carked it. If you're not worried about it all working as standard, bypass your timer with a switch on the dash (momentary on) and you'll be able to control it manually then, helps on cold mornings to warm the cylinders up faster once started too.

Spot on Boo, also connected up a reversing horn on the same circuit because I always forgot to switch the glow plugs off.:headwall:
