Since its starting to get cold out i havent been able to start my vehicle, ive replaced glow plugs, and relays, but still wont start. I checked to see if there was power getting to the glow plugs, but seems that there is any electricity getting to the glow plugs at all. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!

If that's the case you can see if the fuse has blown

A couple of bits of wire and an indicator bulb,
make a circuit with the wire and bulb on the battery.
It glows.
now put a fuse in the circuit,
If the bulb blows it's good,
if not......
