300tdi glow plug light is staying on...

Took the rover out today.. It started as always, and the light worked as usual.. Then while driving, it came back on - and now it will not go off.

Pull the plug off the relay or pull the relay out.
I have mine on a 5 Amp fuse in the interior fuse panel, that I only use when the ambient is in the 20F's. Some guys here say to use the cycle year round but, I've had no issues doing it this way in 15 years.

I had this issue on my 200tdi. There was a short in the glow plug wiring that was causing it to stay on. Replaced all wiring and plugs, issue resolved.
