Don't know what a cycliniod is, but it could be a relay/solenoid. Not passing the voltage/current, the contact inside it are defective, burnt.

A new relay is available at most any auto parts store, be sure and specify it's for a glow plug controller and not for a starter relay/solenoid.

It didn't make a click like it usually does and I grounded the white wire ontop of the glow plug relay and then cranked it and it fired right up what would need replaced? I bought a brand new glow plug relay about 2 hours ago that I put on could it have a problem already?

Ensure the grounds are clean and torqued for good conductance.

The small wire that hooks up to the solenoid is what excites the coil. With the key in the run position, check with a meter and see if there is any voltage. You'll need to be fast, or have some help, because it DOES time out. If that wire doesn't have power, check fuses. If fuses are good, and you have power getting to the controller, then it most likely is going to be the controller.

Yeah I had my dad help me do that and there wasn't power in the coil so I'll check fuses but for now I made the glow plugs manual with a push button and that works
