Have you checked all of your vacuum hoses for leaks? Any vacuum leak, even intake manifold or throttle body gasket, will cause an engine stall right after starting. Likewise with a fuel pressure problem. If you aren't getting voltage, maybe whatever switch starts your glow plug cycle(either turning ignition on or opening driver door, depending on model) is defective, or any of the wiring of the circuit. It's a cheaper guess.

Your glow plugs are going bad and need to be replaced. This is a sign to you that they are basically running all the time because they dont know that thye are heated up and the car is running. Common problem with diesels

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.
