My 205 diesel preheating light occasionally does not go out (or comes on during driving), any suggestions what to check please?

I would obtain a cheap used relay from a breakers and try that first, just make sure you get the correct one, sounds like the glow relay has gone tits up.

It is advisable to check the block connector on the blue box. We had a similar problem on a 205, after 4 S/h relays and 1 new one, it turned out to be a poor earth.
A new return wire was scotchlocked in and to the best of my knowledge, the tempory repair is still working after three years.
