glow plug cel?

Ok got a question. I have a 2000 X and the cel light came on the other day and it said 2-4-6-8 glow plugs not working. Now I have a 99 350 and have checked the glow plugs on it but I read on here that you couldn't check them on an x or something. I guess what im getting at is there a fuse for those glow plugs or is it something stupid im missing? I am some what new at this so please make some sense out of this. Thanks in advance.

My CEL on my X came on last week and the code showed a faulty Glow Plug Module. As I understand it, the 7.3 Xs have a Glow Plug Module like the 6.0 engines. They don't have a glow plug relay like the rest of the 7.3 engines. Took 15 minutes to replace and all is good.

Sounds like your X is a CA model. Check the valve cover harness for any thing unusual.

Ok being kinda new here why do you think my x is a CA model? I have unplugged the harness and cleaned the pins as best as I can. It just doesnt make sense for them to all be bad at once. If all the pins were next to each other in the harness then maybe I could see the harness being messed up somewhere. This just confuses me...I don't know enough about them. But you dont think there is a fuse? Can I check them like a normal 7.3 or will they read funny being it is a different set up?
