I may be wrong here but 100amp on a glow plug.main fuse isnt that big could it be the glow plugs are not switching off while running take a while to cool off after shutdown./Not an expert on diesels so may be wrong.?

On reflection JamZ is right if the fuel flow continues and there are hot spots ie carbon deposit build ups being red hot the engine will continue to run.would get it sorted.if its hard to start may be the glow plugs need replacing.I as I said doubt the 100amp at glow plugs 10 amps yes.?

A diesel will run after starting as long as it gets fuel;sounds like a faulty solenoid.
