The glow plugs work in direct relation to the engine block temp. The relay for the glow plugs is obviously reading the wrong temp, that's why they turn back off. It's most likely that the temp sensor is bad, but trace the wires back and make sure there are no breaks in the insulation and they are well connected at the plug-ins. I have seen a lot of wires at the connector look good but fall off as soon as you touch them.
If the temp sensor is the same on for your your dash, then borrow a heat sensing gun and double check it against the guage. I have seen them read wrong by as much as up to 20 degrees. If the sensor reads rught and feeds both the guage and the glow plugs, then the problem would be either the wire harness or the glow plug relay. Hope this helps.

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
