Question about 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty
I have even waited a couple of seconds after the light for the glow plugs to go out but it takes a second crank before it starts.
It sounds to me like your glow plugs are shot or just on there way. They do need replacing from time to time, especially when not given time to heat up properly watch for light on dash to go out be for cranking engine over. If after having them replaced problem isn't fixed, i would try a new fuel filter.

Seems like a low injector control pressure situation. You may see plenty of oil pressure on the gauge but the high pressure oil that opens the injectors is probably passing through a blown STC fitting at the back of the high pressure pump or something of that nature. Check for smoke out the tail pipe, if there's smoke, I could be wrong. If you checked the glow plugs (make sure you have 12 comming and going through the relay, just because it clicks does not mean it's working) than you more than likely have compression, the last thing you need is fuel. To get fuel you need high pressure oil. Your truck should have an ICP sensor on the right valve cover toward the front. You can back probe or make a breakout harness to pins... ok I don't know what two pins but there is only three. Anyway backprobe the sensor and see if you have more than .82V while cranking. If you do not, go to the IPR (injection pressure regulator) which is behind and below the turbo. It is a round solenoid valve sticking out of the high pressure oil pump. This valve will have the connector pointing down and toward the back of the motor in it's "weather protecting" position. You can rotate this valve by hand so the connector is easier to get to but don't force it and break it. You will then need to apply 12V and a ground to this valve. Do not supply the voltage for more than 120 seconds though or you could burn the valve up. with 12V to the valve see if it will start. If it will you may have a power supply problem to the valve. If none of this helps let me know, the rest of the troubleshooting is pretty involved.

It is possible that some of the glow plugs might not be working. This will cause a hard start and smoking condition especially in cold weather.

Do you have dual fuel tanks? Place the return fuel line from the back of the fuel pump in a bucket and see if it will start. If yes replace the fuel tank switching valve. It may switch supply side ok, but not return side and if so it is plugging the return, which will cause a no start stuation. If it starts running the return line into a bucket replace the switching valve.

are you referring to the starter relay on the firewall? the voltage should drop to 0 when measuring across the signal path because the connection is made, essentially making it a piece of wire and there is no difference in potential between the two points. is there 12v to the starter motor? is the starter solenoid (located on the starter) receiving 12v? check fuses and fusible links. disconnect hot leads from the starter. remove the starter, and supply 12v directly to the motor. does the pinon gear extend and spin? starter.
