Glow Plug light stays on while driving

I was driving today and the wait to start/glow plug light started flashing along with chimes. Now it's on permanently. Anyone know why that is. All other gauges read ok. No check engine light and truck starts and shuts down as normal. Any help would be appreciated

Nope, no codes. I've done some reading and most people stay they have rough starts if the light is staying on but mine acts as normal.

Never heard the grid heater chime in of the 7 dodges i had, You sure your not looking at the water in fuel because it will chime and stay on

hate to be that guy, but the cummins does not have glow plugs. I had that similar issue a few years ago and had the replace the grid heater, you can get a cummins grid heater online fairly cheap.

Would you suggest swapping the grid heater? Where is it?

I have had my smarty jr for 6 months and had it set on towing since day one. Would setting it back to stock help?
