Hmm, I'll have to watch my auxiliary glow plug light more closely next time I start my van. While the plugs stay on for several seconds after the dash light goes out, I'm pretty sure they turn off immediately when I release the key from the START position. Or maybe my glow relay isn't doing what it's supposed to? Does anyone else have a light wired directly to the glow plug bus bar, like I do, so they can check this for me?
