Long start after headlight change

So I changed the headlights in my 97 7.3 and after I finished up my truck takes about 3-4 seconds to start up even when its completely warm outside. I changed the batteries as they were old anyway and still have the same problem. Right before I changed the headlights out, I had no problems with starting up. Anyone have any suggestions? GPR, glow plugs, and harness was all replaced recently.

Now that I come to think of it, I did install led lights in the license plate lights before I got everything back together. Think this could cause complications?

I wouldn't think the lights would have anything to do with it.
