Ok so I just tested the circuit as described. Slightly odd findings, the battery voltage is 12.86 with the engine off increasing to 14.75 when the engine is on. The leads are constantly live, with voltages 11.36, 10.74, 10.86 and 11.18, this doesn't change when you put the ignition on. All leads increase to around 12.4 when the engine is running! The glow plug light doesn't take 8 seconds to go out, it takes maybe 2!
