Take the cover off the top of the engine. It will be on the front of the passenger side cylinder head next to the fuel filter housing. It looks just like a Ford starter solonoid. Should have two large wires and some small wires coming off of it.

Okay, thanks for the replies. I replaced the glow plug relay and the engine still will not start. How many glow plugs being bad does it take for the engine not to start? My batteries are turning the engine over very fast and they are fairly new. I changed the fuel filter. I cranked the engine with the fuel filter out to make sure it is pumping fuel, and it is.
I just changed the engine oil within the last 300 miles. Now what?

What were the symptome leading up to the no-start? Was it hard-starting before? Did it ever die while driving? I am wondering if the CPS is bad....

Also, does the "wait to start" light illuminate and then go out?

Wife took kid to school one day and it died. She got it started, but when she rounded the corner to our house it died again. I tried to start it the next morning but it wouldn't start. I plugged in the engine heater block and after three or four hours it started. (Might have been conincidence). So I replaced the glow plug relay yesterday. Then this morning I tried to start it, and it won't start. I now have the heater block plugged in again. For some reason I think it is something else. I cranked on it 6 or 7 times this morning for 10 seconds each, but it will not fire.

Yes, the wait to start light does illuminate and then go off. Come to think of it, it was getting a little hard to start in the last few months. But I drive it rarely anymore. The engine has 275,000 miles on it.
