My CRD is terrible hard starting? I can never remember it being this bad. I have the Hot Tune and it seems to me the Glow Plugs do NOT cycle nearly long enough? How long should the Light be on?

We do not change the factory glow settings. At -20 F the light is one for 2-3 seconds max. At warmer temps it may only be on for 1 second or less. The plugs are still powered for the first few minutes of running even without the glow light on. The factory 7 volt ceramics are the best for cold start ability. Next would be the 5 volt Bosch metallic mopar replacements. A distant last is the etecno 7 volt or 5 volt metallic plugs. Many folks have starting issues with these plugs.

Remove the 7 volt etecno plugs, install the 5 volt mopar plugs and change the tune to the 5 volt logic. This is the best it will get.

I noticed I have this relay/controller, could it be the problem? https://www.ebay.ca/itm/754-Jeep-Dodge-Diesel-9-Pin-Glow-Plugs-Relay-Bosch-0281003034-4-Zyl-56044671AC/263294054617?hash=item3d4d8c70d9:giwAAOSwywRZ~HTm
