If the fuse is bad you will not have twelve volts on your glow plugs when the indicator on your dash is on. Read the glow plug voltage with a meter but a simple 12volt test light will do as well.

There would need to be quite a bit more info shared to even begin to possibly hazard a guess or offer a course of action...

Are you talking about the sensors in the head that have an electrical connection to them?
