The glow plug relay is at the back of the intake manifold. If the glow plugs are still good and relay is bad, take a 12 gauge wire from a positive side of a battery (just hold it there), and hold it to the terminal with the small white wire. You should hear it click. Hold it on for about 8-10 seconds, and either have somebody crank it, or take the 12 gauge wire off and run inside and crank.
If the glow plugs are shot, plug it in. Wait a couple hours. Should fire off if temps arent too bad.
Or you can try starting fluid. If so, disconnect small white wire on glow plug relay, that makes the glowplugs inoperable. Give it a SMALL shot of starting fluid. Be smart about it. Then crank, should roar to life.
