Try waiting for a full min, with the key ON, After the WTS light goes out. The GPs are on for Much longer than the light (aprox 10-90 sec longer in the cold)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^He always beats me And of course he's right.
What weight oil are you using? What temps? How old are the batteries? What are their CCAs?
All of those things can affect it as well.

How long is long anyway? Might be long to you but maybe it's normal for a 7.3?
