Your diesel requires the glow-plugs to heat up to start when cold. This is why the truck smoked excessively when you pull it to start the motor. Siince you are not having the glow-plugs warm up via the "Timer" for them and you are getting intermittent Solenoid response from the tickler wires on the Solenoid, there is one common point.

\015\012The Ignition switch is the common point. You should also observe if your "Start" light is getting the feedback from the glow plug "Timer". Replace the Ignition switch and see if you hear the "Timer" clicking before a cold start. You can also take a 12 volt test-light or gauge and check the wires to the glow-plugs when cold. The glowplugs should be getting power from the until the glow-plugs heat up.

\015\012Remove and check the glow-plugs. A good way is to remove all of them, and take some jumper cables to each briefly. BE careful as they can melt and you can ruin the threads with the jumpers. Comparison is the best way to describe testing them. They should heat up the same for all. The glow-plugs that stay dark the longest are bad.

\015\012Ask the auto parts place if they show an Ignition relay for your Diesel. This would cover the poor starts when warm. Also tell them it is a Diesel when getting the Ignition switch.
