wait to start light comes on while drving

hey guys, first powerstroke, and small problems, the wait to start light comes on while driving and loses power for about 2-3 seconds then goes back to normal, and a slight miss, just drove 400 miles towing 10,000lbs without a problem, and just driving to work 15 miles, light came on 4 times, 96 f-350 cc 4x4 lb, 7.3, any help would be great, thanks

Mine did this yesterday! Didn't run any differently though.

Driving on the highway @70mph I looked down to see the light on. I got off the next exit (hated to think the glowplugs were ON all the time) and at the light, shutoff/restarted.

Light was off and hasn't come back on yet. I thought "computer glitch?"

It ISN'T the relay that sets the light (I know the GPs are on longer than the light is) so it must be the PCM that sets the timer length and the WTS indicator. I hope the light is on without actually heating the plugs.....
