If this plug is burned, you will need to replace what is damaged. Now the glow plugs will need to pull about 180-190 amps when cold.
It has a 10mm bolt securing it. From comments on the internet several trucks have caught fire and burned up. Best have an accredited diesel shop specialist look at it.

This is for the injectors and the glow plugs. The green arrow is the connection to the ignition switch.
I live in Alabama so climate is warm enough. I have even tried jump starting it. It is a common problem on many high mileage 7. There should be power there with the key on. I have limited experiences with diesels and will try my best and if I am not able to help, I would request another technician to continue. If you ran the fuel too low it may have air in the system that will have to be bled out. Just make sure you fill filter with fuel before you install it.
Just a couple tips for you newer Ford guys! Turned engine off, tried to start without ether but would not start. Any experiences would be a plus. Can't see the glow plugs. Ford apparently doesn't think this is a problem and has not taken action to correct the problem nor will they assist in the repair. And a toggle switch for something? I checked the oil level and tried filling the inj. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence initially and then to a dealership who determined the cam position sensor was defective. Turn the valve and let the fluid drain.
The inj have 2 hold down 8mm bolts only remove the one closes to the turbo. After taking to the local Ford dealer I was told that the windshield was leaking and water had damaged the gem module and the fuse block. It restarted after several attempts.

It'll be running towards the top of the fuel tank from under the truck. If you ran the fuel too low it may have air in the system that will have to be bled out. Your engine could be low by just 3-4 quarts causing a hard start. It it just died and will not start I would be looking elsewhere for the problem. Sometimes I can jump start it, but other times it won't start.
I am afraid that the computer is fried. However, nothing seems to help. At this point the vehicle became extremely hard to steer and the brakes were nearly useless. . I have checked fuses and if it was the cam sensor it would have started back when it cooled off. I had it towed to the dealer and the result of the breakdown was a cps, cam position sensor.
Well this will be the fun part not really. I have even tried jump starting it. We need to know what is missing causing the inability to start and the following links would provide you some testing basics. Here is a hidden problem with 99-02 Powerstrokes. Hey, I just found a similar problem with my 1999 F250 7. Priming it now won't help, because the air bubbles are already past the fuel return line.
