Question Instrument cluster problem

I installed a cluster Derek @ Chubbs auto made for me, TDI with MFA. Have a slight problem however.. the glow light stays on after starting. It's not on full power, about half dimmed. Thinking about a leak current somewhere or something? Any idea anyone? It is definitely the cluster as I tried the old one without MFA and it works perfectly.

Link to a Youtube film I made showing the problem:

Because the other cluster works - ie the glow plug light works properly and this cluster doesn't, I'd say the cluster has a defect.

The other issue, if both clusters have the 'dim' glow plug light, then I would swap out the glow plug relay.
On many long journeys have I gone. And waited, too, for others to return from journeys of their own. Some return; some are broken; some come back so different only their names remain.
