wanting a REAL fix for my Glow Plugs

95 7.3 turbo. And when i got the truck the guy had a hot wired the controll side of the glow plug relay with a button. Well id like to get ride of that and fix it right. So when i key on my truck the wait to start light will come on for a fews seconds then go away, hot or cold. So that circuit is working sooo would it be the timer switch or some other part that i can look into ? And heres the relay i have a arrow pointing to a connecter that i think is meant to be hooked up to the relay http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/att...1&d=1408770819

I like the manually controlled plugs. While the heat is needed for a cold engine, using the plugs when starting a warm engine is a waste of battery energy and plug longevity.

The engine also believes its "a waste of battery energy and plug longevity" as well. The WTS light has no bearing on how long the gps are actually on. Read the attached and you will see why.

You dont thats why the PCM is supposed to control it. Manual overrides are back in the days of IDIs. No use for that nowadays, just let the PCM do what it was designed to do
