Glow plug light not coming on/ No start

My 1992 f250 IDI was running fine and seemed to have a little trouble starting in the moring when it was the temp was around 40 degrees, but just the other day I went to let the glow plugs warm up but the light didn't come on and when I tried to start it would crank but not start. All the lights are working and I have checked the main fuse for the glow plug controller (20 maxi) but it was fine. About a month a go replaced the starter relay (near the passenger side batttery) and put in a new ignition switch (the key was getting stuck) MAYBE A BLOWN INLINE FUSE OR A BAD glow plug CONTROLLER ?????
You guys really know your stuff and you have helped me a number of times
I was hoping someone could help me out one more time.
Thanks in advance,
Kevin

Not an expert by any means but I had a similar problem. I was installing a Bully Dog chip in my 99.5 PSD, the chip was bad and fried the ECM (Engine Control Module). The wait to start light wouldn't come on, but it would crank and crank and crank and no start. A new ECM ran me 400. Bully Dog completly blew me off but they sent me another chip, big fricken deal right. Hope you find out that it's not a ECM. Hope this helps.
