check the 22 fuse under the hood. Also check the solenoid itself it might be burnt out. plus maybe the wires might be bad

Trucks and parts............

DO NOT USE EITHER, you will pop the pre-chambers, your glow plug controller is probably bad, try jumping the glow plug relay on the passenger side front fender, see if that helps

how do you go by jumping that relay.. is that the deal under the metel cover with 2 fuse's and 2 electric deals? i am just trying to sell this truck for a friend.. trying to get stuff working to get more $$.. he has been using starting fluid for 2 years... and the block heater is not pluged in. it hangs down on the right side of block..

Everybody is so anti ether. If used wisely, in emergencies, it's fine. It when you use it all the time or use a ton of it that it's no good. I carry a can with me just in case.

That said, your relay is probably done. Take an ohm reading of all the glowplugs, more than likely they are shot (that contoller for these years like to fail in the on position frying te plugs). Shouldt read more than 1 ohm's

If you ask any IDI purest, they will actually tell you anything below about -15* ether should be used instead of glow plugs as your batteries might not crank fast enough after the glow plugs at those temps.
