Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

With the glow plug light not coming on and the glow plugs have been eliminated this issue is a communication problem from the ecu to the vehicle this is where the light gets the signal to turn on.If the ecu does not send the signal to turn on the light the vehicle will not start.The ecu is going to need to be tested as this is where the problem is.
