No glow plug light?

Hey guys anyone run into this before? On initial cold start glow plug light comes on as normal.....any other start after, It does not come on again, doesn't even flash the light. Keep in mind it's winter here so "cold"......

This is not how the truck was previously....before anytime you cycled the key the glow light came on, summer or winter.

How long is the truck off before you try to start it again? Mine does this if it is still warm. I've seen it where it might be off for up to an hour and the truck stayed warm enough.

Hummm...it never mattered before on my truck....anytime you cycled the key the light would come on...hot, cold, summer, winter. Now it appears to only come on when it needs to. (Which is ok as well).

I thought the light always came on anytime you cycled the key as a self check?

Mine has only come on when it's been sitting for a while. Even in the winter when I think it would be too cold it doesn't come on and she fires right up without hesitation. I guess the truck stays warm for a fairly long time even in cold temperatures.
