sounds like a bad sensor. the glow plugs should stay on long enough to reach a certain temperature, especially when it's cold. So turning off after 1 second is not nearly enough. There may be a problem with sensing the temperature of the glow plugs.

SOURCE: 1997 VW JETTA DIESEL GLOW PLUGS

You have to replace the defective glow plug. You can test the glow plug without the test light. Just put a wire on the bolted end of the glow plug and connect this to the battery (+) terminal. Then, put a wire around the body of the glow plug and connect this to the battery (-) negative terminal. Hold at this position for a minute or less. Good glow plug will heat up.

As far as the wiring schematics, I will just describe
it. Your ignition switch is connected to the positive
terminal of the battery by way of the fuse in the fuse
box. From the switch it goes to a timing relay before
going to the glow plug terminals. The glow plug body
is screw mounted to the engine block which serves
as the negative terminal. So, as you switch your
ignition, it heats up the glow plug enough to give a
combustion of the atomized fuel in the cylinder piston
of your car causing it to run.

I did this exact thing.. I see your date of posting is a while ago, however let me know how you ended up.. If you leave the battery connected while installing the relay you can short it out causing the problem all over again.. also there is a couple points that run along that wiring harness that are known to rub through.. let me know how you did!
