Glow plugs are a consumable, they get weak over time, Hens why they use a controller! To minimize the burn time to reduce the wear and tear on the GPs to give max life with good performance.
By using a manual button they tend to be over burned shortening their life cycle..
As others have said, Good grounding is critical, Ensuring good solid positive feed line same as grounding all needs to be clean and tight.
Remove each glow plug and test it to see if it glows red, visually inspect each one for pitting or cracking or heavy carbon build up.
