Make and model? Or best to take a voltmeter or test light, and with the two terminals open, turn switch to glow plug, while testing the 1 and 30 for voltage. The glow plug terminal will show battery voltage only when glow plug is selected. Hook up the glow plug wire to it, and the other has to be aux.
