position will stay glowing for  up to minute.  I changed the relay with a
fast relay I had from another VW diesel and it still does it.

Probably the wire is off the temperature sensor on the heater connection at
the end of the head, or the sensor is defective.

Wire off = long glow period
Wire grounded = short/no glow period
