To check your glow plug relay - read this:

Hard/No Start? Check here first. - Diesel Forum -

Your starter relay can get sticky - most people test it by having someone whack it with a hammer while the other person holds the key in the start position. You could put a test light on the small terminal and confirm it is getting voltage with the key in the start position - if the solenoid isn't responding - its bad.
