I feel like that might be the case, Terry. I'm still kicking myself for throwing away my old one. When you sent me my current one I pitched the fried one. I could have pulled the bulb to the wts panel and installed the section that says "wait to start" somewhere with an LED wired to illuminate behind it.

Couldn't the LED simply be mounted behind the WTS dash icon??

Not sure. I don't think it is that easy. There is a panel that contains all the lights which is part of a circut board.

I want to add something here. You do not want to wait until the led light to goes out before starting your engine or you will have a real strong possibility of burning up your glowplugs. The glowplugs aren't meant to be on for more than 15-20 seconds without incoming air washing across them to cool them down and regulate the temperature output.

Hmm. Interesting point, Jack. Wouldn't have thought of that.
