I have gone to diablos website and updated two different predators. Its easy and free to do. All you have to get is a cable to hook the predator to your computer and a power supply if you don’t have a computer you can take to your truck. Its also nice to have this stuff because with it you can download the predator diagnostic software and run trend recorders on the various sensors and signals in your truck. The predator is a very good programmer and a great diagnostic tool. I have never had any trouble with it except for when I tried to load it in a truck that already had a chip that the owner didn’t know about. The wait to start light has no direct connection with the glow plug system, it comes from the computer and will normally turn off way before the glow plugs do. There must be something strange going on inside the computer for the light to be coming on by itself. I’d definitely try the update first, last time I checked there were 4 programs that could be used in the predator, something like a tow, eco, extreme, high altitude.
Also to rule out whether or not the computer is commanding the GPR to be on when the light comes on you could rig up a light to the GPR you can watch in the cab to see when it is on, I can usually tell by watching my battery gauge.
