Smile scenic 54 1.5dci ~ battery discharging

morning all, new here! wife's scenic has packed up..i am an ex citroen technician, and challenger 2 MBT(ex REME!) Scenario: scenic has been getting worse starting from cold, maybe five times to get it started. then, at work last week, failed. After 20 mins on jump leads, i got her going. parked up and following morning, battery dead. charged up, and nothing, even with a jump from my trusty 1986 range rover 3.5 v8 with split charging system! (2 batteries). Took out glow plugs, checked for 5-10 seconds on battery charger, all ok. Any ideas how 1. check glow plugs on car whilst being cranked, 2. glow plug timer relay - location. Off to buy a manual today from sparkly shop aka halfords! its driving me what wold i do without me range rover aka mechano set! all replies greatly appreciated..
