The glow plug light on my 350 SDL doesn't come when keyed but stays on for about 60 seconds after starting. Does this mean one of the glow plugs is faulty?

The pre-glow relay has diagnostic ability & when the light comes on after starting then at least one glow plug is bad!

Chris,

ALWAYS replace all the glow plugs even if only one is at fault. Just a word of advice.
