Glow Plug Sensor light out

I recently picked up a 79 300SD and after about 1000 miles the glow plug sensor light stopped working. After reading a few threads about this issue I replaced the glow plugs. now it does start better and faster but the glow plug sensor light is still not working. Where should I look next to resolve this??

if the glow plugs are working then you probably have a burned out dash bulb.

Quite easy. Just pull the cluster forward and then pull the bulb out the back of the cluster.
