No real need for a manual override if your parts are in good shape. If you're having trouble starting then you need a new relay and/or all new gp's.
This stuff doesn't last forever.
If your relay is in good shape and your Glow Plugs are good, the truck will start even below zero in about 8-10 seconds just using the factory set-up.
You turn the key on and the gp's glow for up to 2 minutes, but you can start the truck in 8 to 10 sec, usually. You can watch your volt meter to confirm this. When the truck warms up, the gp on-time will be much shorter, if on at all.
You don't "CYCLE" these glow plugs at all!!! When they are on, they are on for 2 minutes. If it won't start after 8 to 10 sec you have problems to fix.
