  1. The relay which controls the glow plugs stay on when plug is in relay and continue to stay on all the time even when engine is running causing check engine electric problems. If I disconnect the glow plug cable the relay does time out and the glow plugs relay turns off. It seems to work properly but if i plug the cable into the relay box the relay malfunction. Is the relay bad or the electronics computer defective.
