190D won't start/glow light doesn't light

The light on the instrument panel for the glow plug doesn't light, nor will the car start. Yesterday the car was fine.

Years ago I had a diesel VW that would do the same thing. It had a strip, I think it was a relay fuse, that I would replace. Does my 1987 190D have the same strip or do you have any ideas?

It's not really engine or chassis specific, but...the procedure is the same

Cheers!
