A6 Avant sport 2002 AWX 1.9tdi 130ps 83k

Reluctant to start first thing, fires up straight off the key but within 2-3 seconds revs die to 800rpm splutters then it cuts out, takes three attempts then its OK, drives/starts as it should all day long till next morning.
New glow plugs and new 4pin CTS sensor fitted but no power to glow plugs regardless of temperature unless connector pulled from CTS then power is supplied to plugs for 19 seconds, starts no probs if CTS connector removed. Temperature gauge works and glow plug light comes on/ goes off after 2 seconds if CTS connected but still no power to plugs.
Plugs should only operate if temp below 9C and once engine is started can come on in post-heating mode for up to 4 minutes after engine starts to help improve idle quality and combustion regardless as to whether pre-heating took place.

Any suggestions as to cause or where to look next appreciated ?
