Wait to Start Light Doesn't go out

My Glow Plug light won't go off with the key turned on (engine off). Once I start the truck it goes off. Any ideas?

Do you have a fuse for the glow plugs? Or can you tell if they are cycling?

I assume, I have had it on for maybe 2-3 minutes. Normally it goes out instantly.

Can't really tell.

Have you tried pulling codes? We need to know which GP is bad.

that is usually a sign of a bad glowplug... usually. I'd pull the codes to confirm. Real cheap to replace if it's all it is.
