Here is a little testing I've done on the Glow Plug parameters. This is from ignition off to start to drive 5 min or so.

The six parameters that dealt with shorts and open circuits have not shown any variation. Based on parameter tables they should show "0" if no fault and "1" if there is fault. Mine were at zero. I am not sure how this may be useful to anyone diagnosing the issues with glow plugs, but it certainly be interesting to see what parameters will be shown for a vehicle with glow plug issues. I have not found any parameters that deal with each individual glow plug diagnostics, yet.
