Wait to start light missing? 2002

I just got a 2002 f250 7.3 4x4 SuperCab Lariat. I can't find any wait to start warning light.(glow plugs) My old man's 2000 has 1 , I have even looked with a flash light and cant make 1 out. I do not have the owner's manual and when I look on line the 2 dashs they show are not the same as mine. It does say not matter how hot out it is this light should be lite for atleast a few secs. My dash has a trans temp gauge(if this helps) and as far as I know is a stock dash/gauges. Thanks for the help.

For an owners manual, go here:
https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/results.asp

It's weird, like you said, it doesn't show one. Pages 10-15 talk about the instrument panel and the pics don't show one. Now, I didn't read through the whole thing so maybe it says something in there somewhere. Maybe one of the other lights serves a dual purpose....that's just a guess.

I found this one too:

Page 9 does look like the 2002 IP and it shows a double loop for the F-series. You'll see the pic. Don't know if that's what you have or not, but that's what it says anyway.

On a 02 with the new gauge cluster it's going to be the coils on the left, right in the middle. I'll go get you a picture.

You can do a bulb check. With the key "off" press and hold the odometer reset button and switch the key to on, keep holding the button until all the gauges do a sweep. Then press it (3 times I think) until bulb reads on the odometer and everything should light up.
