Default Glow Plug Igniter Issue

Hi all,

New member here. Just picked up a Kyosho DBX a few weeks ago and ran into a strange problem earlier today.

I have a Dynamite metered rechargeable glow igniter and it's been acting funky ever since running my car earlier today. I charged the unit overnight (12 hours) and it worked well for a day and all of a sudden it died out on me today (ran good for 1 start). I figured it lost its charge, but I plugged it in to charge for ~4-5 hours and placed it over the glow plug (to see if there was any current) and the meter still shows 0. I also took out the glow plug to test if the plug was good but it wouldn't glow red. Keep in mind I just replaced the glow plug a few days ago so that shouldn't be the problem.

Any ideas?
