replace the relay but check connections first as often connection get hot and corroded.failing which buy a push button switch use a relay and and some heavy wire to and from relay to the heaters and work them manually.you could try seperating the relay and cleaning the connections inside.

I don't have the solution but a possible help in diagnosing. If you remove the water temperature sensor connector from the sensor, the glow plug light should stay on when you go to start the car. Try leaving it on for 15 seconds and then start the car. If it starts right away, it is your sensor. If it doesn't, the good luck.
The sensor is located on the right side of the engine near the top, at the back. It is in the coolant fitting directly behind the hose from the rad, just left of the thermostat. Be careful to disconnect the wires, and not remove the sensor, or you will loose a lot of coolant. The sensor is held in by a separate plastic clip, and the harness just has a little built in clip on the side. Hope you have small hands...

There is a big fuse in the engine room for the glowplugs.
You'll find it just near the brake vacuum cilinder under a black cap...
Hear if the glow relay ticks when you'll put power on. Does the glow light lights on?
