glow plug light is on all the time?

Gauge working great doesnt mean the sensor for the plugs is unless your sure its the same sensor.
Check the wiring from wherever the sensor is located on your car,the glow plug sensor that is.
What brand of glowplugs did you get as replacements?

The general advice is check each one with a multimeter/or a test lamp.Its possible one or more of the replacements have failed.

I dont even get a glow plug light from cold on my car tho the manual says Im supposed to, maybe I need to leave it out on v cold nights.
Is there an ambient oat sensor in the relay.Can you hear it clicking off at all?
Have you tested the relay so that it stays live no more than 15-20 sec when activated?
Just ideas^.
