Question about Wait to Start light on 2012 F250 PSD

Hello all --

Been gone a couple of years since I sold my 6.4L F350 DRW. Bought a leftover brand new 2012 F250 Lariat FX4 6.5' last week, and took it on a nice 500 mile trip this weekend. Just got home -- very impressed!

Everything is working great, truck starts and runs just fine, but I noticed one thing I thought was strange. I don't see a Wait to Start light (yellow coil icon) or message on my dash, even for an instant when turning the key. Is that normal? I would have thought the light would at least flash to demonstrate it wasn't burned out.

It's still pretty warm here > 55F over night.

That is not normal. My yellow coil light is always there for a bit when the engine is cold.

Mine is on 99 percent of the time. I have witnessed times where it doesn't come on though

I'll have to get out early tomorrow AM and see if it comes on, guess I'll swing by the dealer in the afternoon if it doesn't come on to see what they have to say.

I saw a few forum posts about a fuel heater fuse that can blow, and the glow plug light won't come on then. Who knows!

Yeup like the other say. Not normal. If the engine is cold it should at least flash on.

This morning outside temp was 54F and thankfully the light came on and went out about 2 seconds later. Looks like it's working fine! Thanks for all the feedback.

Now I just need to the dealer to swap around my spare tire. LOL. My window sticker said 275/70-18 All-Terrain tires, but the truck came with 4x Michelin LTX MS/2 installed, and one LTX AT/2 under the truck as a spare. I've asked them to swap the spare with a MS/2 so I have a matching set - I think the MS/2 are going to be better for our weather and my driving here.

With the new glow plugs they reach temp in 3 seconds so if you're not paying attention you might miss it.

I have never seen the light after almost 7000mi of ownership. Maybe once the cooler weather gets here I might.
