Glow Plug solenoid

The glow plug solenoid wont shut off after ignition is turned off and the wire that feeds the solenoid shuts off. but the power continues to flow through the solenoid? 2000 f350 7.3 Powerstroke. Bought rebuilt motor put in and wont start?

think your wiring is messed up...what color wires you got at relay and i'll go check my truck.

I'd post wire orientation, but my g.p.r. went out, so now ALL my wires are on AIH relay..

Remember, the solenoid is just a "Remote Switch". Sound like yous is just bad, with the contacts welded together...
