    Bad glow plug I imagine.

    The glow plug needs to maintain the reaction between it and the fuel in order for it to continue glowing. When that reaction ceases the engine will not run. When a glow plug glows with an external power source attached but will not maintain a glow when it is disconnected then it is bad.
