I think that you're halfway there. If you're getting voltage to the glow plugs, the relay, fuse, temp sensor, etc are probably okay. Before my experience with parallel glow plugs, I would've said to use an ohmmeter to see that they have continuity (are not open). However, I've found that with parallel, also called pin type, glow plugs, they will have continuity, but if I replace them, everything is okay again. They have gone up considerably in price in the last few years, and are now around $8 to $10 each. But I believe that if you replace them, you're problems will go away.

Good Luck,
