They could... possibly... maybe... indicate four bad glow plugs, but they would never indicate one or two bad glow plugs. In short, the PCM can NOT measure the resistance of a glow plug, it never did and never will. So whoever told you it did was either lying to you or has no idea of how the glow plug system works.
