There is a 80A fuse in the preglow relay, its a strip fuse w/2 phillips screws. If its blown possibly one or more of the glow plugs are bad.

The glow relay is located on the fender under the hood and it looks like a black box with a cover over the top. The fuse is inside of the box. The glow plugs should be checked dynamicaly with an amperage reading.
