    you shouldn't need to... there must be a fault on the pre heat system if you thinking of going down that route

    Why do you want to?

    But should you do id go with a resistor inline with a push button to feed the plugs you will have to find out the voltage as some plugs are 11.5 vdc so not to burn them out.

    Is the relays or timer working on yours?
