Are you getting power to the glow plugs? What's the voltage dropping down to when you turn the key to run?

check your batteries too if you have a bad cell or bad connection on one of the batteries, it will show ok voltage but you wont have the amps you need to run the glow plugs right

Normally the volt meter goes to where 10V should be on the gauge. Not to sound like an *** how do you know the GP relay/silionoid is bad?
