keepin truck warm

i have a 2002 excursion with a 7.3 powerstroke diesel. the problem im having is that the truck wont start if its kept outside in temps under 32 degrees if its kept in garage with heat starts fine. my engine light is on and have had looked at they told me it is showing that the computer modular that runs the fuel injectors and glow plugs needs to be replaced. ford says there is a part called (injector modular) as im concerned they dont no much more than me!!! HELP!!!!!!

the glow plug module very well could be bad, and on an excursion will turn the check engine light on, if code says its bad , may want to get it replaced , does sound like thats your problem by the symptom

Do you plug it in at night when you leave it outside? Also, you might want to tell us which part of the country you live in...
