Where are you getting these designations from? I doubt the Diesel pre-glow
relay does anything in an urQ. If you have any doubts about whether or not
the relays are installed correctly, you may need to find someone else with a
QTC and do an A-B comparison ... most of the relays have specific connector
footprints, so you probably don't have a problem ...

... simply using the remote starter may not eliminate the ignition switch
from consideration. What can happen is that the switches that supply the
+12 when the ignition is on can develop poor contact, leading to a reduction
in voltage to these sources independent of the starter solenoid load. (your
use of the remote starter switch probably helps though IMHO). If the rotat-
ing the distributor trick didn't work, you're probably into digging around
the electrical system with a voltmeter ...
