83 glow plug issues

I went out today and didnt have my block heater plugged in.
So the gotta wait for glowplugs to do there job and do a awesome cold start.

Anyway i turned the key and the light lit up then immediatly turned off. Not even 2 seconds... usualy 8 or 15 seconds.

Well i waited 20 seconds figuring the light bulb died..
Cranked it for 30 seconds and nothing.

Popped hood and my negative cable on top battery was broken off... odd that the van still cranked.

I went and got the new part for battery cable. Went to turn on van and glow plugs no light up.


I also put my voltage meter on the glow plug controller. Niether post has any current.

Is there a fuse in fuse box i can replace or a fuisble link??
Which stud is power in?
Where does the power wire orginate from???

Thanks. Sadly im working on this right now. I bought a new controller in case i fired it. But not replaceing till i have power.

The power goes from the battery to the starter and feed off of it are wires with fuseable links going from the passenger side towards the GP controller.

I believe the power comes to the stud closer to the center line of the engine but not 100% sure.

Take a pair of booster cables and jump the large terminals on the GP controller. You'll know that you power to there at least.
